ELY sixteen-year old schoolgirl Stephanie Waddelow is blazing a trail across the male-dominated world of superbike racing.

Stephanie - a student of Ely Community College - won all four of her races in the MRO Superteen competition at Brands Hatch in May, establishing herself as a world record holder for women in the sport.

The Little Downham-based youngster swept the board on her SS Racing Aprilia, and now stands second in the championship on 266 points - just 13 behind the leader - following successes at earlier meetings including Cadwell Park.

Her aim is to win a championship and eventually to compete in the British or World Superbike championships. She is looking for sponsors to help cover her expenses for the rest of the season (which ends in October) and can be contacted on (01480) 494540.
