Weston motor cycle rider Jodie Fieldhouse is flying out to Spain to take part in British Super Bikes pro season testing.
Motor cycle rider Jodie Fieldhouse is going out to Spain to the British Super Bikes pro season testing at Cartagena.
She will be testing alongside a lot of the big names in BSB and it will also be the first time she will have ridden the Moto 3 bike with other riders in the 2018 Motostar Standard Moto 3 class.
After the four days of testing in Cartagena, she will be moving on to Finestrat in Spain to do five days training on the Supermoto.
Jodie has named her new bike George in honour of her dad’s old sidecar teammate George Hardwick, who passed away in 2015.
Eighteen-year-old Jodie is an ex-Priory School student who finished training with Weston College to be a nail technician last year.
She is not currently working though, as she has signed up to be a part of YRDA (Young Racing Drivers Academy) which is part of Arden Motor Sports which is run by Garry and Jamie Horner (Christian Horner’s father and brother).
The academy has previously focused on bringing forward young racing drivers from go-karts to F1, but is now branching out to take on young riders as well.
Jodie and Max Cook (2017 Standard Class Motostar champion) are the first riders they have taken on, so it is going to be an interesting and exciting year.
The academy will focus on teaching them everything from fitness, nutrition, media, management etc. For Jodie at the moment between the academy, fitness training and the time she needs to be away for BSB, it is pretty much a full-time job, so she is taking some time out to focus on her riding.
