FHO Racing’s Team Owner Faye Ho Is The Only Female Team Owner In The Bennetts British Superbike Championship.

For the 2021 Bennetts British Superbike Championship an all-new team lined-up on the grid, a team that was formed from the retirement of Smiths Racing. The team FHO Racing was set-up by International business woman Faye Ho, who has a regional and international business portfolio ranging from property, digital marketing and animal welfare.

Faye has been sponsoring riders for many years especially in the Macau Bike GP, where in 2010 her sponsored rider Stuart Easton won the Macau GP. More recently she backed her now British Superbike rider Peter Hickman whilst he was competing in Macau.

Faye’s passion for motorbike racing started from an early age, she grew up in Macau and was raised by her grandfather Macau casino mogul Stanley Ho. Every November she would watch the Macau GP bike and car races from her family home which was right next to the Macau course.

I remember as a little girl, I used to sit on the ledge of the garden area where I could overlook the course and just watch racing all day long, loving it every minute of it, So that’s where the passion started; the enthusiasm for racing. I was just so amazed by the riders, how they ride those bikes, and the thrill of it. And also being able to meet some of the riders; I thought, they’re just so down to earth, and a good laugh.

FHO Racing had a very strong first year as a new team, Peter Hickman won races and got into the all-important Showdown. 2022 sees Faye and her team branch out into the International Road Racing Series with riders Peter Hickman and Brian McCormack, they will be competing at the Isle Of Man TT, The North West 200 and the Macau GP.

Faye has now extended her team to run in the British Superbikes support classes with three female riders. Faye launched the new initiative last year, as her FHO Racing team worked closely with 16-year-old Charlotte Marcuzzo and 17-year-old Scarlett Robinson in the Hel Performance Junior Supersport class, in addition to 16-year-old Holly Harris in the Honda British Talent Cup.

I was immensely proud of what all three of the girls achieved last season, especially when they had so much to learn in a short space of time. I feel that the support and guidance that we offered from the FHO Racing team will have played a pivotal role in helping them to develop their careers within the sport.
Any form of competition always has a steep learning curve, and I am really happy that we can help in some way to nurture these riders at this early stage of their racing career, whilst also helping to raise their profile through their association with the FHO Racing BMW Superbike team.

Faye has had many challenges come her way and has always dealt with them in a confident and positive way, she believes if someone has a passion for something, we all should be able to pursue it and chase our dreams. Faye believes there is potential for more female team owners to get involved in motorcycle racing.

We would like to wish Faye and the FHO Racing Team all the best for their 2022 season!
