In 2016, Mathew raced in MotoAmerica’s Superstock 1000 class, and he joined Yamalube/Westby Racing for round seven of the nine-round series, at Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC) in Tooele, UT. At UMC, Mathew notched two podium results in his very first race weekend with the team. He went on to record three more second-place finishes in the final two rounds of the 2016 MotoAmerica season, ending up seventh overall in the final Superstock 1000 Championship points standings with a total of seven podiums on the season.
After the 2016 MotoAmerica season concluded, Mathew went back to his homeland of South Africa, where he had been contesting the 2016 SuperGP Championship. Riding his #20 ETR Nashua Yamaha R1, Mathew clinched the National Championship at Red Star Raceway outside Delmas, South Africa, on October 29.
For 2017, Mathew is focusing his road racing efforts exclusively on the MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Championship.
