This season British Superbikes, the strongest domestic championship in bike racing, will have a female team owner, Faye Ho. She’s not the first woman to do this, Jenny Tinmouth ran a BSB team in 2011. But Ho has ambitions to build something substantial and lasting. Having survived breast cancer and being orphaned at the age of six and after a successful business career in her own right she is now taking on her biggest sporting challenge. Ho has been sponsoring riders for over 10 years, winning the Macau Bike GP with Stuart Easton in 2010 and more recently backing Peter Hickman and Michael Rutter. At the end of last year she took over the Smiths BSB team and rebranded it Faye Ho Racing. Hickman will ride one of her BMWs and Xavi Fores the other. Where she blazes a trail, she hopes more women will follow.
