Matt Wigley – Pirelli National Superstock 1000

Matt Wigley – Pirelli National Superstock 1000

It has been a season of frustration for Matt Wigley having suffered a broken vertebra in Round Four at Knockhill which effectively ended his year before it had truly began. During his four race weekends in Superstock 1000, Matt managed to showcase his overtaking prowess with a number of impressive manoeuvres, although he was unable to record a Championship point.

Matt had spent the previous four years in the Superstock 600 class alongside twin brother Kurt Wigley, producing an impressive eighth position in 2014 before really stepping up his performance in the same vain as Kurt in 2016.

While his brother managed to get on the podium, Matt was forced to settle for a best of fifth during a season of highs and lows. The 22-year-old made major improvements to his speed in the wet and was progressing nicely until he suffered an elbow injury that required an operation.

However, the former junior champion proved his bravery and determination by returning to action just three rounds later and registered his best result of the year in the second event following his recovery at Donington Park.

Matt will be eager to make an impression next season after spending most of 2017 on the sidelines and will be hoping to make up for lost time as he tries to catch up with Kurt’s progression towards the British Superbike class.
