Last Saturday’s TTXGP Championship race was really thrilling to watch for all fans and motorbike enthusiasts. Eleven E-bike Teams participated in the race to compete against each other. Amongst them Ho Chi Fung and his team Zongshen, a Chinese Motor Bike manufacturer. Due to the changing weather conditions it was not only each drivers driving ability but far more the racing strategy each team chose which defined the winner of the race. Having already proofed what successful strategists they are MUENCH Racing took advantage of the circumstances and came out victorious in the end.

“Our dream started at 8.30 am on Friday morning during the open practice”, says MUENCH Manager Thomas Petsch. “Amongst the eleven participating teams we were the only German team and after our bitter set back during the race in Silverstone we brought our new developed MUENCH TTE-2.0.” Instead of the missing Japanese Team Prozza the Chinese team of the big motorcycle manufacturer Zongshen with its 16 team members and two bikes participated in the race.

However, MUENCH had other problems to focus on: “In contrast to the TTE-1.2 the hinge moment during the lower engine speed is not satisfying yet. We hope that in the future we will be able to improve it. Until now the engineers of the manufacturer could only shrug their shoulders. During the higher engine speed however the TTE 2.0 is almost as fast as the former TTE-1.2. Although it is more then 15kg heavier”, stated Thomas Petsch. Nevertheless Matthias Himmelmann was once again able to proof his outstanding talent and use the high speed racing track to his advantage. Due to the TTE-2.0’s powerful output during the higher engine speed MUENCH driver Himmelmann was able to achieve a top speed of 214,9 km/h and from that point on drove ahead of the competition in the qualifying and the race.

After the two qualification runs it was obvious: If the bike did not have any problems Matthias Himmelmann had good chances to win. He drove a lap time of 2:56.504 and was 0:16.448 seconds ahead of Ho Chi Fung from China and 0:16.852 seconds ahead of his all time rival Alessandro Branetti from Italy.

“Our plan was to let Fung and Branetti duel for the victory and attack during the last third of the race. Of course everything turned out to be different when Fung attacked right after the start and since then was ahead of the field,“ tells MUENCH manager Petsch. Soon Himmelmann started to chase Fung and passed him as scheduled during the last third of the race. With a considerable gap to his followers Branetti and Fung, Himmelmann was able to bring home another victory for MUENCH Racing. Ahead of Fung Alessandro Branetti came in second.
