Tinmouth and Splitlath part ways

"The team and Jenny have parted company by mutual agreement"
Jenny Tinmouth and Splitlath Aprilia have parted company ahead of this weekend's fourth round of the British Superbike Championship at Thruxton.

Tinmouth made history as the first female BSB rider when she joined Splitlath, alongside Hudson Kennaugh, for the 2011 championship.

“We can confirm this afternoon that the team and Jenny have parted company by mutual agreement," said Team Manager John Dimbylow. "Jenny has been a lovely girl to work with and we are all sorry that things haven't worked out as we had hoped. The team have enjoyed working with Jenny this season and we all sincerely wish her the very best of luck for the future.”

Tinmouth was forced to delay her BSB debut due to a parts shortage at Brands Hatch, didn't qualify for round two, then suffered two DNFs at round three.

Having tried to follow Jenny (not for long) on a racetrack many times, she certainly has what it takes and is way more talented and driven than a lot of the guys in BSB. Alas its still the case that because she is a woman, few take her seriously. Hope someone sees past this and gives her a ride on a more reliable bike. :-)

@ John. I have to agree really. I fully accept that Jenny could beat me hands down on a bike, but it is rather patronising to all the would be BSB riders who are good enough when she cannot get within 9 seconds of pole, not to mention dangerous. If she was a man she would not have a ride in BSB. End of. Sorry it sounds harsh, but that is reality. I eagerly await being proven wrong though.
