Kurt Wigley has enjoyed a promising 2017 after stepping up to the Dickies British Supersport class. The 22-year-old took time to adjust, but has earned points in 14 of his last 19 races since the feature race of Round Three at Oulton Park, including eight top 10 finishes and a best result of sixth at Snetterton back in July.
Kurt has been particularly impressive in wet conditions and is hoping to be one step ahead of the pack in 2018 having become the first Supersport rider to test the new Mupo suspension during the final few rounds of the season, helping him to amass 83 points in total.
And he earned more plaudits with a strong showing while representing Sorrymate’s Junior team for his maiden race in the No Limits Racing ACU Endurance National 600, with the trio of riders crossing the line ahead of the Championship-winning senior team by finishing in fourth at Donington Park.
It has been another year of improvements following on from an accomplished 2016, when Kurt registered a pole position, two podium finishes, a fastest lap and new personal bests at every circuit during his fourth and final year in the Pirelli National Superstock 600.
This was a major leap in performance having only recorded a best result of 16th over the previous two seasons.
Kurt has been a junior champion on multiple occasions at various levels and is now ready to take the jump towards a season at the sharp end in the Supersport ranks in 2018.
