(VIDEO) TTXGP EURO / FIM e-Power: first win for Zongshen Racing at Oschersleben19 August 2012
The Chinese Tang Yu won the fourth round of the electric motorcycle championship TTXGP joint (like at Laguna Seca) with the FIM e-Power on Zongshen Racing. This victory is a promising sign for the team in this competition.
First after 10 laps, the Zongshen Racing team can be proud of last Sunday’s performance. He finished 35 seconds before his nearest rival, leaving no chance to Udo Reichmann (Reichmann Racing-Mavizen) and Christian Amendt (epo-Bike) who just saw its rear wheel getting away over laps...
Yet, Matthias Himmelmann from Muench Racing had dominated the tests and qualifications but a motor overheating just gave him some points of the sixth place. Zongshen Racing had already distilled small warnings at the Assen round leading the first three laps, but finished in second place at more than 20 seconds...
This victory is worth a brief statement from the winner: "Thanks to my team [...] it's amazing for my second season on an electric motorcycle."
The next and final round of the FIM e-Power Championship / TTXGP EURO will take place in France on the Bugatti race-track of Le Mans “s’il vous plait”!
