He suffered an awful crash after clipping the back wheel of his competitors tyre as he took on the first bend.
It led to Wright losing control of his bike and he went flying into the barriers at high speed.
The 34-year-old was taken to hospital immediately and has suffered spine and rib fractures.
He also picked up neck, chest and arm damage.
Wright underwent surgery on his collarbone on Monday morning.
The former British champion is in a stable condition in a Wroclaw hospital but is in considerable pain and is struggling to move.
A fundraiser has been launched to support Wright and his family with him set to be sidelined for sometime.
He hopes to raise £2,000 and he has already secured £1,200 from generous and concerned supporters.
Fans were left fearing the worst after watching him spin-off the track, one said: “Fingers crossed Wright is okay.”
Another added: “Heal quick champ. Stay strong.”
The injury means Wright will miss the Ekstraliga play-offs.
He became individual British champion in 2019 and his recent great form saw him win the team trophy last year while at Belle Vue Aces.
Wright also raced for Somerset Rebels and the Redcar Bears during his lengthy career.
