The ‘fastest chick on wheels’ has had a phenomenal racing season this year after collecting more than 20 trophies and podium positions.

Jodie Fieldhouse, from Worle, started racing just two years ago and is now the current East Midlands Racing Association (EMRA) RRV450 champion.

Under the tag line, Go Pink Racing, the 18-year-old has taken on and defeated men nearly twice her age.

She finished third overall in the Thundersport Superteens Challenge, where she faced off against the 22 best motorcyclists in the category from the UK.

Her mum, Rachel Fieldhouse, said: “Anyone who meets Jodie quickly realises just how passionate and dedicated she is towards her bikes and racing.

“Showing the world that girls can be competitive in a very male-dominated sport as well.

“In every race she has been in since June she has secured a podium position and we could not be prouder.”

Jodie first started riding on mini motors when she was just 14 years old but moved up to the larger bikes when she was aged 16.

Her parents Rachel and Carl have been an ongoing support system for her and were amazed by their daughter’s raw talent.

In preparation for the next season, one of Jodie’s sponsors, Carrickeast Construction, has just purchased a Honda NSF250 Standard Class Moto 3 which will allow her to compete in the standard class Moto 3 MotoStar championship in the British Super Bikes paddock.

Rachel said: “This is a huge step up for Jodie who is extremely excited and very much looking forward to the challenge of a new bike and new championship to get to grips with.

“It has been a very busy year for us but also very exciting. The challenge will now be keeping up with the running costs of the new bike, which costs £10,000-15,000 a year to run.”

Jodie, who was a student at Weston College, has now left and is focusing her attention on her racing career, with a bright future still ahead of her.

The family is still looking for people and businesses to sponsor Jodie’s fast-progressing career in racing.
