I have always been a fan of motorcycles. I was handed a form to flag marshal at WSBK in 2008 and applied, that was how I was introduced to racing. I had a blast, made a lot of friends, and never looked back.
It is one sport that size, gender, muscle don't matter. Everyone is equal on the race track. I mostly enjoy setting goals and beating them. The racing community is one big family. Everyone helping each other to get out there. I mostly enjoy seeing the joy on the face of a person who is new to the track, and has been bitten by the bug.
Don't listen to any of the hype. I started racing with no history in, or knowledge of racing. I was supported by some amazing men into the sport, and could never have raced without their guidance and support, challenging me to challenge myself along the way. There are more men in the sport supporting you than against you, all you have to do is ask.. Don't let someone else's bad day impact on your decision to stick at it. Your race bike doesn't know what gender you are and it doesn't care.
Be objective, listen and understand. Be professional.
Go for it. Don't wait for someone to open a door for you. Find your passion and live it!
Inclusion and equality wherever possible.
