After the first two TTXGP races in Silverstone and Spa fans get to watch another suspenseful sabre rattling between the series’ racing teams and their e powered bikes at the “TT Circuit Assen” in Assen (NL). With its 17 curves and a total length of 4.555 meters the course has a lot to offer for both, teams and spectators.

Already in 1925 the first motorbike races took place in Assen. Back at the time the raceway was 28.4 km long and made its way through Borger, Schoonloo and Grolloo- three Dutch provincial towns. Today it’s not the length, which makes the course so special, but the challenging track itself. Built exclusively for the racing sport the raceway’s curves can be seen at an early stage but on the other hand the drivers have to face chicanes that already forced lots of racing young bloods to quit. In line with numerous investments the complete paddock and headquarters got reconditioned in 2001 and 2002. The building measures made it possible for larger vehicles to unhampered get to the paddock which made the raceway even more famous.

To make the track itself more appealing and challenging for the racing sport it underwent a major facelift in 2004. The raceway might just be the right thing for the German Matthias Himmelmann who already proofed his talent during his long lasting racing career and will put his experience to a good use when he repeatedly competes for MUENCH racing in Assen.

“Our goal for the third European eGrandPrix is to be one of the top three since our TTE-2 is not made to meet the track’s characteristics. Furthermore the weather that is supposed to be rather cold and rainy adds another uncertainty factor. Hence we can be really happy if we manage to finish under the top 3,“ says Matthias Himmelmann, who just recently won in Spa (Belgium).
