Angela Cragg from our accounting team in Penrith embodies the diversity and energy within Armstrong Watson. Wearing a suit for her day job, Angela likes nothing more than to don her 'Armstrong Watson'-emblazoned leathers and head off on one of her numerous motorbikes to compete around the country. She is racing over the bank holiday weekend at the Pre TT at the Billown circuit on the Isle of Man, on Monday 30th May, in the hands of TT winner and NW 200 double winner Ivan Lintin.
Angela was given her first motorbike at the tender age of eight. Often the only woman to compete in her chosen events, Angela has experienced success, winning the Ducati 250cc Championship in her first year of competition.
Angela says: 'I'm delighted that Armstrong Watson has been so supportive of me during my career - both on and off the track - encouraging me every step of the way. It makes all the difference in such a male dominated sport.'
Steve Pinguey, Partner in Penrith says: 'Angela is a one-off in her sport and we are proud to have her working for us as well as flying the female flag in UK motorbike racing.'
