Aprilia Superteen rider Stephanie Waddelow has stunned the British Superbike paddock by taking four win from four races at Brands Hatch this weekend – and giving the boys around her a bit of a poke in the eye in the process.
After stepping on the top step of the podium for the fourth time throughout the weekend, receiving the various awards and trophies from BSB riders Leon Haslam, Tom Sykes, Michael Rutter, Stuart Easton and WSS star Tommy Hill, she said: "I am knackered.  This race was harder than the third race.  Don't know what my championship points are,  but I don't think there will be much of a gap."
Stephanie, nicknamed Flossy due to the tight ringlets she had as a child, debuted on the 50cc bikes in 2006, where she got the opportunity to attend the Red Bull Academy of 500cc racer Alberto Puig. Talking about her experience in Spain she said: “I had never been on a 125cc, it was experience to go out there.”

And the 16-year-old from Ealing has not let the additional pressure of her GCSEs affect her results on track. Due to a couple of DNFs she is battling for the championsip lead with Jack Blake, who has been a racing rival since the start of her mini-moto racing career in 2002, and Fraser Rogers who shadowed her for second in three of this weekend's races.

Stephanie only started racing after her dad took her to see some mini-moto races and after that she began her career and has loved every moment. In 2007, she moved up to the 125s. “It was quite fun and I learnt the tracks. I was rider of the day in the April meeting and the fastest rookie of the first meeting of the year',” she said.


Her dad Graham added: “It was a pretty average season, she was on standard bike and equipment so there wasn't much more she could do.'”

At the end of 2007 Stephen Shepherd, of SS Racing, provided a bike and some funding camne from sponsor Signal UK. Stephanie said: “The bike is good, it's excellent machinery,” while Graham added: “Magnum Motorsport have prepared the engine to the best it can be, there's not much you can do with them but it's good now to be able to have done all what we can.”
