Susan Jenness Trophy WINNER 2018

Julie Canipa Receives the Susan Jenness Trophy
 

The TT Supporters’ Club have presented Julie Canipa with
Susan Jenness Trophy for 2018 in the pit lane after the
completion of the Dunlop Senior TT.
The Susan Jenness Trophy is awarded by the TTSC Executive
Committee to the female competitor considered to have
made the most meritorious performance each year at the Isle of
Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy. The trophy
commemorates club member Susan Jenness, who lost her life
some years ago whilst marshalling at an off-road event in the
UK.
Julie received this prestigious award for her consistent
high-speed performances around the Mountain Course in 2018,
as passenger to Greg Lambert. They finished the Locate IM
Sidecar
Race 1 in tenth position averaging 107.368 mph; gaining
 a bronze replica. Unfortunately a mechanical issue forced a
retirement for the pair in the second race.

An Isle of Man resident, Julie was a late starter to the sport of
sidecar racing. Her TT career started in 2015 alongside
driver Doug Chandler, where they achieved a best result of 37th
position. This was followed by a difficult 2016, where the
 pairing failed to finish either race. For 2017 she teamed up with
Greg Lambert and found immediate success, taking a best career
finish of 8th in the second Sidecar Race of TT 2017. In 2019 she
has partnered Marie Costello to two finishes and a best
lap of nearly 103 mph.
