hi all i have been watching a young lady bike racing this year and she has done very well and won the mro superteens on an aprilia 125 this season .we also watched her race at brands on the bsb day on a moto gp spec 125 honda in the krp team this girl was very fast to adapt to the lighter bike and higer speeds she was within 1 second of the pole this was her 1st time on this bike and she proved to be faster than people who have been on the same machines for 2 seasons bradly smith even praised her up .So what do i need your help for ???? she needs to stay in this class on the bsb billing to get noticed however its not cheap and after speaking to flossy (stephanie waddelow ) i believe she really deserve`s an opportunity to shine ,this lass does a papper round and other jobs just to buy her pistons she`s also studying `A`` levels but she`s a racer at heart and when she races she`s as tenacious as a jack russell so if anyone out there knows anyone who could help with sponsorship then please let me know it does not matter how small an amount because it will all add up in the end any help will be greatly appreciated thanx lads:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Suggestion 1

Looks impressive especially showing she can break her body and come back and win races. That sometimes psychs you out.
Economy is bad and getting worse. If she had a paypal account maybe we could each donate a small amount to her. She could maybe paint the bike the fast colors :rolling: and put www.benelliforum.com on it. At least she will gain a tenth when she uses these colors. Just kidding about the paint. (paint jobs are expensive)
It is nice to see women trying to race and also to be competitive.
How about donating $10 or UK10 pounds or 10Euro emailing a friend asking them to match it or even more and to forward it to another friend all in the name of promoting racing.
Let's see whether we can come together on this one.

Never heard of her up here in Scottie-land but I'm up for making a donation anyway..........see, the rumour of us Scott's being 'tight git's' is just a myth. Now where do you want me to send my 10p :confused: :bawl:

Let me know if/when she gets the sponsor site up and running ;)

I have been watching Stephanie Waddalow since the first time I noticed her at the start of the season at Brands hatch. There is no doubt in my mind that she is capable of going a very long way. She is fast but also in control,she allways fights back when passed ! She deserves all the help she can get. Pauls idea of a paypal account is a good idea, I will even open my own wallet !!

I'll add my support and if theres a donation site started i'll add some pooonds !. Has anyone spoken to her about doing a paypal site ala sponsored by all of the Benelli forum. I was recently thinking of making some T shirts with the logo of wwwbenelliforum.com on and maybe an italian flag free to all on here as i have an embroidery machine at home but could also combine her name on a batch and maybe make all sold with the proceeds to go to her race support funds .

Too bloody right I'd be up for at least one and would be happy to pay for them. In fact I've been trying for some time now to sort out some embroidered polo shirts from a source in the Philippines but the communications back and forth have been a bit sporadic.

Laurence, thats because you're supposed to pull the Baked Bean Cans really tightly so the string gets tight enough to communicate with the Philippines !:rolling:

I suppose she will be our second girl racer seeing as i just may have another that comes to mind namely Italian Lovely Lara Cordioli who went round beating other fellow racers on Benelli's (1130 and TNT). Good to give our support to Stephanie Waddelow though and bring on the account :clap:

Hi Ferret, I know how hard it is to get funding to run any type of bike racing team, we are running a team in national superstocks and funding that is proveing very difficult in the current time. If she does manage to get into the BSB race schedule we are always availabe for any additional help or assitance if needed. Just look for the Jonathan Howarth race truck. We are currently looking at running GSXR 1000 's next year but that might change (think green!!)

Anyhow i'll still be visiting her web site with a donation and good luck for next year and see you in the paddock

PS there's a nice lady who does team wear at reasonable rates [email protected] she does all our team clothing and it's always nice to look the part and have the sponsors names on view for additional exposure.
