Steve Webster MBE (born January 7, 1960), is an English sidecar racer who has won a record ten FIM Sidecar World Championships, making him the most successful sidecar racer ever. Webster began as a 19 year old racing at club level and quickly moved up to national and then world championship in 1983, winning his first world championship in 1987 while partnered with Tony Hewitt, riding an LCR-Yamaha machine. From 181 Grand Prix and World Cup races entered, he has had 62 wins, 37 second places and 27 third places as well as 82 pole positions. He has won the FIM Sidecar World Championship on 10 occasions, with Tony Hewitt, Gavin Simmons, David James and Paul Woodhead. In 1985 Webster and Hewitt had a massive crash at the Dutch TT at Assen, shown many times on television where the sidecar left the track at high speed, slid along the grass before hitting a drainage ditch. The accident caused the pair to miss most of the season. Steve Webster was the recipient of the Segrave Trophy in 1991.

In 2005 Webster announced his retirement after health problems prevented him finishing the season.
