Faye Ho has made a commitment to the sport with her latest venture, stepping up from motorsport enthusiast to team owner, having previously supported a number of riders and teams in her native Macau Grand Prix event. As an international businesswoman, she currently divides her time between business and charity work in Macau, Hong Kong and the UK, and has a self-confessed love of racing.
FHO Racing Team Owner Faye Ho
“I’ve always loved motorsport and bike racing in particular, so when the opportunity arose to take over from the Smiths team, it seemed the ideal opportunity to get involved. I first supported motorcycle teams at the Macau Grand Prix in 2009 and the next year we claimed the victory with Stuart Easton and the PBM squad. What struck me immediately with two-wheeled racing was the excitement and passion; it is a huge challenge that the teams and riders take on each time they are on track.
“When I came back to the UK, I witnessed the thrill of the Isle of Man TT and the level of professionalism and competition of the BSB series. When we heard the Smiths team were withdrawing, and having got to know Alan and Rebecca Smith, the team owners, in Macau, it felt like perfect timing to help step in to build a new team. I’m just so excited to get going, this is probably the biggest challenge I’ve ever undertaken and ultimately we have the desire to want to win races!”
