Even though he started playing soccer at a young age he switched to BMXing and developed a passion for it. He was initially uncoordinated when riding on racetracks but he loved pulling off BMX stunts and soon began showing them off in skate parks.
Mat Armstrong mastered BMXing thanks to his consistent practice. By 16 he enjoyed riding his BMC bike after graduating high school. Mat participated in numerous BMX competitions across the globe while being sponsored by “Madd Gear – MGP Action Sports”.
He competed in places like Germany, France, Dubai, Barcelona, etc. From the age of 16 to 20 Mat raced and coached BMX in Dubai. Even though he participated in competitions around the world, BMX was not financially viable because sponsors would typically just pay for travel expenses.
Armstrong injured his shoulder during the qualifying lap for the BMX World Championships in Germany. Despite finishing 16th and qualifying, he was unable to compete in the finals because of his injury. After that, he retired from this job and began finding other opportunities for himself.
After leaving his BMX career behind, he got a job at Evan Cycles. He also helped out his father’s garage where he picked up some fundamental mechanical knowledge by working on his father’s cars. His passion for cars led him to get a job at “Graham Goode Motors”.
His duties included managing social media platforms as well as developing websites and operating Amazon and eBay stores. Since this was a full-time job Mat began working evening shifts as a food delivery driver at “Spice 45”. He used to travel great distances in his car to deliver meals.
Later, he started out driving a Ford Fiesta before switching to a Volks Wagon. Due to the extremely low ground clearance of these customized vehicles, Mat had to switch from driving delivery trucks to working behind the bar because he couldn’t transport meals to certain locations. Mat Armstrong earned a net worth of 3 million US dollars.
Despite his busy schedule (having several jobs) Mat began making videos on his YouTube channel. He launched his channel in April 2013 and uploaded his first video titled “Mat Armstrong & Cam Peake A Minute ‘N’ a Bit At Redditch” in April 2015.
He developed a strong interest in understanding how cars operate and taught himself how to repair them. His rise to stardom began after his girlfriend Hannah smashed her Audi TT on the way home from work. Mat paid about 600 pounds to the insurance to get the car back.
When Mat was doing this, he was using a GoPro to record his films and his YouTube subscribers assisted him in getting the parts he needed to restore the Audi TT.
Mat had a big break when he invested his money to buy a crash-damaged Bentley Continental GT for £10,000 from eBay. At this time, Mat had saved enough money to put a down payment on a property. His YouTube channel surged and he passed 100,000 subscribers as a result of this automobile.
With the help of the Bentley video Mat was able to land his first lucrative sponsor and signed a one-year deal with them. About five weeks later, he was called back to work at “Graham Goode Motors”. He went back to work but it didn’t last long because he was making more money from his channel than his normal job.
Mat left his job at the end of 2019 and became a full-time YouTuber. As of 2024, he has more than 2 million subscribers on his channel. Some of Mat Armstrong’s most popular videos include:
