Ana Carrasco Gabarrón is a Spanish motorcycle racer, who won the 2017 Supersport 300 World Championship riding a Kawasaki Ninja 300, the first woman to win an individual world championship motorcycle race

Ana Carrasco, a 20-year-old from Spain, who started riding motorcycles when she was three, became the first woman to win a world championship motorcycle race on Sunday in Portimao, Portugal.

Riding a Kawasaki, Carrasco raced to victory by less than a tenth of a second in a race that is part of a lower-tier series created to provide opportunities for promising riders.

"I'm very happy to be with this team. It is a good opportunity after these last few years, which have not been easy. I think the team can be very competitive and that the bikes are going to be too. In World Superbike Kawasaki is surely the strongest brand, and in the recent years they have been ahead, so I hope it is similar in this category. The team is new to the Championship and so am I, but at the same time both they and I have experience and I think we can all try to achieve our goals.”
