Justin Boyd Wilson (born 31 July 1978 in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom – died 24 August 2015 in Allentown, Pennsylvania, United States) was a former Formula One driver who drove for Minardi and Jaguar in 2003.
After leaving F1 following 2003, Wilson has competed in the Champ Car series and the Le Mans 24 Hours. He competed in IndyCar with his death happening in the IndyCar race at Pocono in 2015. On race day, August 23, Wilson was struck in the helmet by some debris that fell from Sage Karam's crashed car on lap 179, sustaining brain injuries, and was airlifted to hospital where he died the following day. It came just over a month after Jules Bianchi succumbed to his injuries sustained during the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix. As a result, Wilson became the first driver fatality in Indy cars since Dan Wheldon in the 2011 season.
Just a couple of months prior, Wilson had made a one-off appearance in Formula E driving for Andretti Autosport.
