Sponsorships — The meeco Group on November 1, 2011 at 13:31

The German and meeco sponsored MUENCH Racing Team, won all four of this year’s e-powered racing championship titles! After winning the FIM e-Power construction category as well as both, the FIM and TTXGP European single rankings, the traditional German brand secured another sensational victory at the TTXGP “World Final” last October 16. Just like in 2010 they once again won the e-racing crown.

“During the qualifying we came in first in front of David Hallett and Ho ChiFung,” explains team manager Thomas Petsch on racing Sunday. “The final race started at 2pm and we all hoped for yet another start to finish victory.” Eventually Matthias Himmelmann came in first with a healthy margin of 40 seconds before Ho ChiFung. With this start to finish victory, head of development Thomas Schuricht and his team once again accomplished something sensational. “The British racing enthusiasts were more than impressed that one can already go that fast on an e-bike. They do understand however, that e-racing is the future,” said Thomas Petsch. The emission-free racing sport is supported by an on-site wind power station in the pit lane where all e-bikes are charged. Two years after their start in e-biking competitions, MUENCH lives up to the expectations and shows that e-mobility is a reality.

If you want to experience MEUNCH Racing Team at close range, you stand the best chances at Essen Motor Show. In line with rattling exhausts the most recent e-mobility concepts and equipment solutions will be displayed. In cooperation with their main sponsor MUENCH will not only present their e-bikes but potentially introduce their new Production Racer and the new TTX Racing Series in hall 4 from November 26th till December 4th.

All of our congratulations to the MUENCH Racing Team for their success!
