EUROPEAN WOMENS CUP - OSCHERSLEBEN, 11. Aug. 2007
FIRST international Champions Titel for DUCATI 1098s
After the last international Titel won by a German rider in 2000, which was the titel fort he WorldChampionShip in the class Supersport 600 by Jörg Teuchert, it took 7 years until the next new champions titel would go to a German rider in a international championship for streetracing. This time to a female rider à Nina Prinz !
Nina Prinz , who was born Nov.5.1982 in Leutkirch "Germany" and currently living in "Mannheim", became EuropeanChampion in the class Superstock 1000.
On Saturday, during a wetrace, Nina Prinz, rider for the italien Y2K DUCATI Womens Team again showed excellence in performance in her class and won in front of ca. 40.000 spectators with a 30 seconds difference to number 2 Paola Cazzola with YAMAHA and number 3 Samuela de Nardi with APRILIA.
In the last 2 rounds of the race, which was dominated by tactics, Nina Prinz gave way to the dutch Iris ten Katen, wo won the race. Nina continued to ride her steady laptimes, not taking any risks, knowing that Iris ten Katen wo rides in the class 600 Supersport, winning the race did not influence the result for the class Superstock 1000 and the European Womens Championship.
Already during the qualifications on Friday, Nina hat shown her skill on the Ducati 1098s. At that time the track was still dry and the best laptime of 1.31,4 already gave her a headstart of more then 1.8 seconds, and therefore Pole position for saturday.
In the afternoon the weather conditions had changed and it was raining non-stop, so time for the team to find the right set-up for a wet-race, which came in handy for the race on Saturday.
