Season of success for Y2K Ducati women's team



Jul 25, 2007

After two years of great success achieved on international circuits, the 2007 Y2K Ducati Women's Team is proving that they have all their cards in order to best represent themselves in the riveting European Women's Championship.

After a start to the season with many tests and some difficulty to get the right measurements on the new 1098s, the riders of Y2K Ducati's Women's Team have begun to rack up pole positions and victories confirming, once again, the speed of the newest Superbike from the company of Borgo Panigale. In May, Nina Prinz dominated the first European race in Vallelunga, leaving her mark on the track's female record, pole position (with the incredible time of 1.43.00) and victory with incredible distances ahead of the other competitors. The best results of the women's team kept coming one after another until arriving at last Sunday's victory at Assen in Holland where not even the strange weather could stop the German who proved that she is the fastest rider, whether the track is wet or dry.

The Y2K Ducati Women's Team is now getting itself ready to face the last race of the European Women's Championship on August 11th in Oschersleben with the German Nina Prinz in first place with full points in the Superstock 1000 class.

In the 600 class, there is also a good possibility for another Ducati rider, Romana Fede, with her 749R, who is only 13 points from the top.

The Italian champion, Letizia Marchetti, is also doing very well at three races from the end and only a handful of points from the top while Romana Fede with her 749R is first in the Superstock 600 class. A summer full of challenges is forecast for the riders of the Y2K Ducati Women's Team.

Next races:
August 11th: Oschersleben (Germany)
August 26th: Mugello (Italy)

The Y2K Ducati Women's Team participates in both the Italian Female Championship as well as the European Female Championship with Nina Prinz, Letizia Marchetti and Paola Arioli who race in the Superstock 1000 category and with Romana Fede who races in the Superstock 600 category.
