Mugen Germany boosted into new on-road season

Mugen Germany boosted into new on-road season

Mugen has boosted its German team for the 2010 on road season. Since years Sebastian Buerge, Rene Puepke and Philipp Sting have been pillars of  Mugen Team Germany which has now seen Christian Wurst coming home to the Japanese manufacturer as well as Joerg and Uwe Baldes as newcomers. Needless to say that factory driver Robert Pietsch will also keep the Mugen flag flying on German tracks, as well as Steven Cuypers from Belgium.

“We have a strong and experienced team to enter races in Germany and of course on an international level”, says Stefan Habbecke of Mugen Seiki Europe (MSE) located in Gelsenkrichen/Germany. “We are ambitious and committed. Not only success is our aim but also to convince with an exemplary teamwork as a benefit for all Mugen racers”.

In the 1/8 scale nitro class Philipp Sting will start in the Mid-German district of the German federation DMC, Robert Pietsch in the South district, Christian Wurst, Joerg and Uwe Baldes and Steven Cuypers in the Western region in which Sebastian Buerge, Rene Puepke and the Baldes brothers will enter the 1/10 nitro touring car class. Beside the German Championships at Roetz (1/8) and Leipzig (1/10) as national highlights, the German Mugen team drivers will also compete in European Championships and the 1/10 World Championship in the USA.

While the 1/10 drivers will rely on the proven and successful MTX4-R the 1/8 racers can´t wait until the new MRX5 will hit the race tracks. The launch of the completely new and innovative chassis of Mugen Seiki, which has been significantly designed and developed by Robert Pietsch, is scheduled for end of April.
