With the conclusion of the season, Mathew said, ‘’ I think 2021 has been a fair season for me. Last year, it was also going pretty well and then, unfortunately, at Indianapolis, I had a bad crash, and it almost ended things for me. But luckily, I’m back here riding again. Some things changed for the last three or four rounds. We’ve been getting stronger and stronger. So, it's always good to end the season off like we have. Now, it gives us confidence heading into 2022. I’m going to be back with the Westby squad. I’ve been here for five years, going on six years now. They’re all family to me. So, I couldn’t be happier. We’ll come out swinging next year. We know what sort of lap times we need to do, where we need to do better. So, we’ll work on that during the off-season‘’ .

 

Ed Sullivan, Westby Racing Crew Chief said, “It’s good to finish the season off on a high with the win in race two. 2022 starts now, though. We are preparing our testing program and are working on the areas that we believe we need to improve. All of us are looking forward to COTA 2022!”

 

That concludes the 2021 season. Mathew and the Westby team will start working towards the 2022 season, with the goal of finishing the next season at the top of the standings. Puigusa will happily continue to sponsor the team and we will try to help them to get to the top.
