Feisty Racing's Susie Grayson and Deb Cartwright head to Assen this weekend for the European Women's Championship second round.

They will join 18 other girls from across Europe and will have to contend with home rider Iris Ten Katen and German Superbike sar Nina Prinz in order to get a podium spot.

Grayson finished third behind the factory-supported Prinz in the first Superstock 1000 meeting at Misano in April and is looking forward to doing battle once again.


"We're not sure what to do about Nina, really! She is very talented and has the full backing of Yamaha Germany behind her, so it's a bit difficult. We're on a year-old bike but we have got some great support from Dunlop for this season so we will just have to get out there and see what happens.

"It might rain, which happens at lot at Assen, so that will level the playing field somewhat."

Cartwright, meanwhile, is battling the hotly-contested Superstock 600 championship. Dutch girl Ten Katen is the clear favourite but Cartwight is determined to continue the form she showed two weekends ago at Brands Hatch.

"I was really happy with my times at Brands and I am so confident with my riding at the moment. I have been to Assen before and have tested there this year, so I should be on the pace quite quickly."
