Rennie Scaysbrook to race 2023 TT with Wilson Craig Racing

Rennie Scaysbrook will join Matthew Rees in the Wilson Craig team for the 2023 Isle of Man TT races


RENNIE Scaysbrook and Matthew Rees will be lining up for the 2023 Isle of Man TT with the Wilson Craig team, with both riders taking on the 1,000cc races, and Rees also contesting the Supersport and Supertwin events.

Scaysbrook, a renowned journalist, writer and racer, debuted in the TT last year, contesting in the two shortened Supersport races for the PRF Racing team. He completed both races though, ending up a very respectable 37th and 44th, with a best lap at 116.048mph.

A statement from the Aussie racer stated:

 “I’m really looking forward to getting back to the Island. What started out as an idea to be a journalist-turned-racer at Pikes Peak and the TT has certainly escalated, and it’s fair to say I’ve got the TT bug now! Last year was good for me and I’m pleased with how I rode and how I prepared myself, but there were issues with the bike throughout the two weeks so I feel like I’ve got some unfinished business.”

 “That being said, moving up from Supersport to Superbike means I’ll pretty much be learning the Course again – new braking markers, new riding style, jumps in places that weren’t jumps on the 600, all that sort of stuff. But it’s exciting, and it’s pretty amazing to already be riding with a team with such a good history, and I have to say a big thanks to Davo [Johnson] for putting in a good word for me with the team!”

Wilson Craig, team owner at Wilson Craig, added:

“Rennie’s story is great. He’s clearly a really talented racer given his success at Pikes Peak and how well he did in his debut year despite the issues he had, and so I’m excited to see how we can help him progress this year.”

 “In Matthew, we’ve got a young but experienced guy who I think we’ve yet to see the best of. I know he’s had his fair share of bike issues, particularly on the 1000cc bikes, over the years, which means we’ve not seen his true potential. We’ll be putting a great set of bikes together for him, pre-season testing has been good so far, so we’re excited to get going.”
