I agree that she may not have as much experience as Mike and Matt, but potential and age are what sponsors look at, and of course being a girl helps. Last I check Mike was instructing and racing in wera.

I'm not saying she'll never be good enough for GP, I think it would be awesome if she made it that far. After 3 or 4 more successful seasons of production bike racing, that is.
It's not a test. It's the PR day for the press and she was asked if she'd like a ride. Would you turn that down? Didn't think so. Her real test will be a M2 wildcard next year. Hopefully, offered by Schwantz.
