KIRSTY HAUXWELL – BIOGRAPHY

Kirsty Hauxwell has been racing since the age of 16 when she started racing with her Dad. Within their first year, they had won the Tonfanau Championship and the Kelvin Beckett Memorial Trophy. They also had come runner-up in the Aintree Championship – just one point behind the winner.

The following year, Kirsty and her Dad again won the Kelvin Beckett Memorial Trophy and came third at the Aintree Championship. This was also followed by another third-place finish at Aintree a year later.

In 2016, the father and daughter team won the Aintree Championship, winning the Prescott Express Trophy, the Jean Vickerstaff Memorial Trophy and the Liverpool Echo Trophy along the way.

This year saw Kirsty pair up with Maria Costlello MBE to compete as a sidecar team in the British F2 Sidecar Championship.

During her time racing, Kirsty has raced across many circuits including Oulton Park, Mallory Park and the Anglesey Coastal and International Circuit.

Kirsty never thought said would go into racing. She fell in love with the sport in 2011 when she first had a taxi ride with her Dad at the Festival of Sidecars. She has loved every single second since that moment.

Racing with her Dad has given Kirsty an opportunity to become more involved and learn how everything works. Kirsty is also not afraid to get her hands dirty!

One of Kirsty’s goals is to race in the British Superbike Championship and maybe even following that with the World Superbike Championship. She knows this is a massive goal, but she aims to reach this one day. Kirsty would also like to compete at the Southern 100 and possibly the Isle of Man TT too.
