The Women’s European Cup will once again be an integral part of the Honda supported European Junior Cup in 2016. The inaugural season saw New Zealand's Avalon Biddle take the championship ahead of Estonian Anastassia Kovalenko at the final round of the season in Magny Cours (France), after an action packed race, with third place going to Switzerland’s Laura Rodriguez.
The 2016 Women’s European Cup will race at the 8 rounds of the FIM World Superbike Championship and is a joint initiative between FIM Europe, Honda and the series organisers, with support from the FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission. The female racers compete directly within the 36 strong grid of the European Junior Cup however they also enjoy a separate classification and championship award.
The entry fee for the series includes ownership of a new race-prepared Honda CBR 650 F, transportation of the motorcycle, technical and coaching support, tyres, fuel, workstations and hospitality unit. All the riders need to do is: arrive at the track with their riding gear and a mechanic/helper and they are ready to race. At the end of the season they can take the motorcycle and road equipment home with them.
