TTXGP European Championship Season Opening in Sweden this weekend.
Reigning Champion MUENCH once again aims for Championship
In line with the 2012 TTXGP European Championship, all e-motorcycles teams will officially participate in their first race on May 18th, 2012 and May 19th, 2012. Last year's over all champion MUENCH and its MUENCH TTE2 will also compete at the "Falkenbergs Motorbana."
As team spokesmen Ralf Ernst clearly states: "We will open the season at full throttle," the reigning champion has set the bar for their upcoming season for yet another victory. "We have worked very hard during the winter and we are very happy to have found a new top sponsor, the Windreich AG," says Ralf Ernst. "Now we have to convert the knowledge and experience we've gained into quantitative results." Furthermore the team will equip their TTE2 with the latest battery to constantly race on a high level. During the race in Magny Cours in April they already proved that their latest developments are efficient and secured the first and second place.
The race in Sweden takes place at the "Falkenbergs Motorbana" which is only about 10km away from the Falkenberg. The fast, winding and demanding racetrack, which was founded in 1967 is known for the Swedish Touring Car Championship and the Scandinavian Porsche Carrera Cup. "Falkenbergs Motorbana" is 1843 m long. All participating teams and their e-bikes will have to race a total of 33,17km or 17 laps (+1 opening lap) to find out who gets to wear the crown. The distance is rather critical if one wants to race at full throttle but does not want to risk an early battery exhaustion. Hence, we can all be very curious which team is able to race a tactical but fast race.
