Faye Ho: From the battle with cancer to the battle with motor racing
Faye is a female fighter and, as such, there was no way she could not have a passion for motorcycle racing. However she is more than a good driver as for years she has also been a sponsor of the highly-competitive British Superbike Championship. Her childhood was difficult as she was only six years old when she lost her parents in a car accident.However, she then learned to talk to animals and love them very much. This was her first inspiration to enter the world of philanthropy. Faye once again showed her strength when, after winning the battle against breast cancer, she organised fundraising events for cancer treatment charities.
Faye, how did you become involved in motorcycle racing?
Being brought up in Macau, the biggest local annual sporting event is the Macau Grand Prix for cars and motorcycles, held every November on a street circuit regarded more demanding than Monaco. A family member had a house alongside the course and from the first time I saw the motorcycles in particular I was hooked. Then in 2009 through one of my businesses I first sponsored a team, a year later I repeated this sponsorship and we won!
At first glance it looks like a male sport. How is it for a woman to fund it and also to enjoy it as a member of the public?
