WHAT IS YOUR ROLE/POSITION IN MOTORCYCLING?
ACU Track Racing Secretary
HOW DID YOU GET INTO MOTORCYCLING?
I have followed motorcycle racing most of my life. I started going to local track Donington Park from age 14. I met Barry Sheen there with my husband who was my hero. I had my own motorbike from age 17. I started working for the ACU when I was 18 and have worked in several disciplines. I became involved in Track Racing in 2001 and have loved my position as Track Racing Secretary.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE/ENJOY IN MOTORCYCLING?
I enjoy all aspects of motorcycling, from touring with my husband before my children became involved. My husband competed in Road Racing before we got married but my great enjoyment is watching my family participate. One of my proudest moments is seeing my sons become the first brothers, and also the youngest brothers to win the British Masters sidecar Championship in 2009. My oldest son has gone on to win many more titles. My daughter has also competed both in the UK and Europe.
WHAT IS YOUR OBJECTIVE, YOUR GOAL?
To help competitors in anyway I can and promote the sport of Track Racing & Speedway. Encourage youth riders.
WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND MOTORCYCLING?
Women in motorcycle sport enjoy the equal opportunities that are not always available in other sports. There is a wonderful fellowship and comradery within all forms of motorcycle sports that is not often seen in other activities.
DO YOU HAVE A ROLE MODEL/MENTOR THAT ENCOURAGED YOU?
I saw thing from a different perspective once I met my husband, I saw things from a competitors point of view which I believed has helped me in my position in dealing with rider/passengers.
