You may recall my interview last year with Stacey Nesbitt, a young racing phenom who was the first female to claim a national road racing championship when she won the CBR125 national series in 2011, and followed up by finishing on top of this year's CBR250R challenge.
Things continue to look up for Nesbitt, as the fresh-faced Canadian has been invited to compete as a wild card entry at the Asia Dream Cup competition in Qatar.
The (potentially) good news? Nesbitt will be riding familiar 250cc machinery, and if she performs well there's a good chance she could get plucked to test for Moto3 racing. The not-so-good news? Her team has only raised about 38 percent of the funds necessary to cover stuff like travel expenses, an FIM license, and insurance.
It's easy to donate to Stacey's cause via her website-- in fact, I just did-- and I encourage you to help this promising talent take her motorcycle racing career to the next level.
