The newly formed Rebel Racing team has signed Nadieh Schoots to compete in the 2019 IRRC Superbike championship aboard their Kawasaki ZX10-R. Schoots will also challenge the international top of road racing at the North West 200, Ulster Grand Prix, and Macau Grand Prix. In addition, the team is looking to acquire a second female rider to run alongside Schoots in the IRRC series.
After some years in the sport, one thing has become clear to all members of Rebel Racing: true opportunities for girls and women are hard to find in racing, roads or short circuit. This is why they have now decided to create their own opportunity, and field two women in the mainland Europe based International Road Racing Championship. Schoots already having experience in this series, will provide support to the second rider.
The team is looking for a title sponsor to partner with for multiple years, someone who or a company that believes just as strongly that given the right circumstances – girls and women are able to thrive in male dominated fields. Rebel Racing is out to prove this through road racing*, and provide more and more opportunities for women along the way. Often being the media and fan favourite they offer unique ways to promote your company within the motorcycling industry, and hopefully soon beyond. Smaller sponsorship packages are also available.
As far as the second rider goes: previous road racing experience is not necessary. The team does require a base of short circuit racing and a ‘winning attitude’. In short, you don’t race to be the ‘best woman’, you race to get the absolute best out of your abilities. If you don’t have any roads ambitions but are serious about racing, the team is happy to discuss other support options.
