Helmut Fath (24 May 1929, Ursenbach – 19 June 1993, Heidelberg) was a German sidecar racer and engineer. He won the Sidecar World Championship in 1960 and 1968. His early racing was on BMW R50 sidecars with a chassis of his own design, but after a bad accident in 1961 took time off only to return with his own design URS four-cylinder machine and win the title in 1968. The URS engine was also used in solo competition as well as powering Horst Owesle/Peter Rutterford to the 1971 World Sidecar Championship.
