Wigley Racing Round 12 Race Report

To round up the season we headed down south to Kent for the final two races for the 2018 championship at Brands Hatch. The opening free practice session of the weekend provided damp conditions as the circuit slowly dried up from the previous night’s downpour. Kurt consistently ran comfortably within the top 10 with Matt in hot pursuit in the teens until the closing stages where it became a game of who pitted early enough to swap to dry tyres as the final handful of laps shifted the field around.

Both of the lads were on personal best form as they headed through FP2 chipping away at their lap times and making regular pit intervals to work with the pit crew and develop a better setting fo..Read More

Wigley Racing Round 11 Race Report

The penultimate round of the 2018 British Superbike Championship bought us outside of the usual realms of Great Britain and into Europe, to the TT circuit of Assen in Holland.

The weekend began on a positive note with Kurt setting a good pace and putting down top 10 lap times during free practice 1. He closed the session in P8, feeling optimistic that there was more progress to be made throughout the rest of the weekend. He further sliced from his lap time in FP2, however, this left him in P10 as the session ended. Matt did not complete the Assen round last year due to competing in the Superstock 1000 class and thus hadn’t been to the circuit for 6 years! Having spent the two practice sessions apply..Read More

The story of the Hideout Jacket

'My leather jacket- the story so far..' By Simon Fellows

' I went to a motorcycle show i think in London in 1988 and there was a fella with long hair whom made racing leathers from Hideout Leather.
I asked him how much he'd charge for making me a jacket out of goatskin and i recall he said 250 pounds.

So some months later i went to Gwyder (??) St in Cambridge and he fitted me for it.
Picked it up and then its adventure really began.
It went to Australia with me in 1989 and was sent back by container to the UK.

I then spent 15 years doing primarily voluntary work and gave the jacket to my brother during my wanderings
I assumed it'd been lost in the mists of time but when Bro became divorced and i'd settled
in Vancouver he asked me if i wan..Read More
