WSS: Cazzola back on a Yamaha

The first female rider to score points in the World Supersport Championship set to return at Misano.
Paola Cazzola will return to the World Supersport Championship at Misano after penning a deal to ride a Yamaha for the remainder of the season.

Cazzola made history at the start of the season by becoming the first female racer to compete at WSS, Italian entering with the Kuja Honda team.

However, despite scoring three points in four races, Cazzola ended her collaboration with the team and has been sat on the sidelines since her home round at Monza.

Nonetheless, she will return to competition at Misano riding a Yamaha R6 run under the Elle 2 Ciatti banner, much to her delight.

"I am really happy to be able to return to the Supersport World Championship at what is to all effects my home round, on a track where I know I can express my true potential. Thanks to this collaboration with the Elle 2 Ciatti Team I will also be racing at the Imola, French and German rounds and we are seeing if it possible to race at Brno.

“These last two months without racing have been so long, I can't wait to return to action more determined than ever! A big thanks to the team, the sponsors and everyone who is helping me to continue to live my World Championship dream."

It will be only the fourth time an example of the 2009 championship winning manufacturer has started a WSS race this season.
