RENEGADE RACER

If ever a rider missed his vocation, it was Sean Emmett.
Emmett’s led an exciting life on track and off it.

Immortalised in these very pages when the magazine was almost as lawless as he was, the toothy Londoner belonged to a generation where hell-raising was standard fare in the race paddocks of the world. He was one of the most naturally gifted riders of his era as demonstrated by his stratospheric rise from club racing to Grand Prix stardom in just four years, followed by a journeyman route back through BSB, and then a fall from grace almost of Hollywood proportions; if they ever get a ound to doing a film on Emmett, it’ll break all records.

But it wasn’t all beer, fags and partying for the man nicknamed ‘Jack Daniels’, although there weren’t many race meetings that Emmett would attest to being clean at from start to finish. “I’m sure there were some sober meetings but I can’t remember them if that’s the case”, he says laughing. “In fact, in the end, it became a bit of a challenge to see just how pissed I could get the night before a race and then see where I could finish the next day. People would say to me ‘Sean, you don’t look well’ and I’d blame my state on something dodgy I’d had to eat the night before!”
