After over 20yrs as the most successful one make series in the world,

The Official Aprilia Superteen Challenge has produced it's first female winner.

 

Sunday 4th May the date, Snetterton the venue when Georgina Polden took this history making honour. No easy task either, for they were on lap record pace and indeed 3rd place man Joe Thompson actually broke the lap record in that very race!

 

Last year, Thundersport GB introduced the Buff Headwear Women's championship, designed to encourage more ladies into the sport, this championship follows all the lady riders in their individual classes, with a points system developed to produce a table.

 

Charley Oakland won it in 2013, with Georgina 2nd and Jenny Tinmouth 3rd, but Georgina is championship leader at present and will have one eye on taking 2014 honours for sure.

 

However her main aim must be to go for top spot in the Dunlop Aprilia Superteen Challenge, where she currently lies 3rd against arch rivals Rory Skinner (2nd) and Joe Thompson (leader).

 

Since series organisers Ian and Myra Newton of IN Competition launched the championship in the early nineties in league with Aprilia UK, it has spawned now famous superstars such as: Casey Stoner, Cal Crutchlow, Tom Sykes, Leon Camier, plus many many more, so Georgina is in auspicious company. Not that she's remotely phased by the win and simply said:

 

"I'm absolutely delighted to become the first female to win a race in the official Superteens of course, but make no mistake, I'll be looking for many more, which I'll need to take the championship. Needless to say, I could have achieved none of this without the fantastic support and hard work of Mum and Dad, who I can't thank enough"

 

Look out for Georgina's progress at Thundersport GB next stop at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire 25th/26th May and enjoy her race win on MotorsTV Thursday night 15th May meantime.

 

Note in what looks like the picture of Joe Thompson racing alone... Georgina is ACTUALLY overtaking him on the outside! (You can just see her tail unit under his in the shot and then it's proven out by the subsequent pic supplied by Dave Jackson of the Bike Insurer)
