Neil Jeffrey Collins (born 15 October 1961 in Manchester, England) is a former speedway rider. He once finished runner-up with England in the World Team Cup final.

When Neil retired he had broken the record for domestic appearances (1,132) in British Speedway, overtaking the record previously held by his brother Les (1,084).

2007 would have been his thirtieth season but having not found a team place by the start of the season, due to the reduction in the points limit for team building purposes, he decided to retire.

Family

Neil has four brothers all of whom were speedway riders, Peter, Phil, Les and Stephen. His nephews Aidan and Chris were also riders but have both retired from the sport.
