The third European all-electric motorbike Grand Prix took place last weekend in Assen, Netherlands. The meeco sponsored MUENCH Racing Team, and its driver Matthias Himmelmann were once again on the starting line with one of the greenest racing bikes on the planet, the MUENCH TTE-2. Happening alongside the Dutch eMobility motorbike championship, this exciting TTXGP race had one of the largest audiences to date and 70.000 spectators got to watch Himmelmann win another race.

Two curves after the start Himmelmann was already fourth and on the back straight he took over the Chinese competitor, making it third. Himmelmann was once again capable to compensate the TTE-2’s starting position with his outstanding driving skills and his thrilling hunt. The already classical and nonetheless fascinating duel with Alessandro Brannetti (CRP Racing) from Italy – a very experienced 250 MotoGP driver, followed. Himmelmann came out on top and ended up extending his lead. During the awards ceremony we once again got to listen to the German national anthem. “Himmelmann who will be called hotshot from now on, wore down everyone during a real battle,” said Thomas Petsch, MUENCH Racing Team Manager.

“The best event I have been in so far! They provided something for everybody- not just eMobility but also GT races and lots of other suspenseful motorsport competitions. Well, and it was definitely one of my best,“ said Himmelmann after his great success.

The meeco Group has never been as proud as a sponsor to an event as with the MUENCH Racing Team. This team has shown tenacity and endurance in developing this all-electric motorbike that meets championship standards while being environmentally friendly. Congratulations to the MUENCH Racing Team and to Matthias Himmelmann for making it happen!
