LITTLE Downham motorbike starlet Stephanie Waddelow, looks set to join the long queue of racers without a ride in 2010 after her racing team announced they were in danger of folding.
Eighteen-year-old Stephanie, the 2008 Superteen Champion and front runner in the 2009 Triumph Triple Challenge, had hoped to continue racing in the Triumph Triple Challenge in 2010 with the support of long term partner SS Racing.
However, due to the financial crisis and loss of title sponsor Signal UK over Christmas, SS Racing has been left in a difficult situation that could see it fold on March 1 unless funding is found.
Steve Shepherd of SS Racing said "It is a real shame that we have been unable to secure adequate funding to keep Stephanie's career on track into 2010. Steph has shown that at 18 years-of-age she has the potential to be the female 'Valentino Rossi' and the results we have achieved together on a fraction of the budget of our competitors only highlights her abilities."
Stephanie has shown outstanding potential not only as she was the first woman to win a Superteen title, but her continued development has seen her score countless records for qualifying on pole position as well as registering numerous race wins.
Stephanie said " I would like to thank all of my sponsors, family, friends and supporters for the belief and support they have shown in me over the past three years, allowing me to concentrate on my racing with fabulous results.
