Women's Team takes Europe with Nina Prinz



Aug 29, 2007

Nina Prinz, the official Ducati rider, won the last race of the European Women's Championship, earning her the title of European Champion in the Superstock 1000 Category.

Under the pouring rain, Nina had no rivals and kept a distance of 30 seconds ahead of her closest follower, Paola Cazzola, while Samuela De Nardi took third. Prior to this race, Prinz also had the best time of the day for the qualifying sessions. This is the first championship victory for the new bike from Borgo Panigale, the Ducati 1098s.

In the 600 Category, after an unlucky season, Romana Fede, on her 749R, managed to take the well-deserved absolute second place behind the unstoppable Iris Ten Katen who was at ease on one of the circuits that she best knows.

This is the third European title in two years for Ducati and a victory that proves the competitiveness of the 1098s. With the European Championship over, the next races for the Ducati Women's Team will be on September 9th in Vallelunga and October 10th in Misano for the last two races of the Italian Women's Championship. The Y2K Ducati Women's Team will be represented once again by Nina Prinz and Letizia Marchetti in the Superstock 1000 class and Romana Fede in the Superstock 600 class.
