At the time we already talked about Elena Rosell, a woman rider who will ride a Moto2 in the Motorcycle World Championship this year, but the first woman, one of the first women who managed to score in the World Championship, was the German. Katja poengsen, in the 250 cc category in the 2001 season. Since then Katja has remained more or less linked to the world of competition in her country. Until now a offer by the Münch team to run the TTXGP. They will also participate in the FIM e-Power reserved for electric motorcycles.

The motorcycle you will use is the Münch TTE, a motorcycle that Katia has already tested for Moto Polo magazine. Anyway, for the most susceptible, Katia comes to the team thanks to the entry of Windreich as a sponsor. And the current driver is kept in the team, Matthias Himmelmann, who already has to his credit the 2011 FIM e-Power title. Thus they hope to have something more of a media pull and some more option to victory. Will we see more such moves in the near future? Well, I don't know, but in a world in which women have been treading very strongly, it is not surprising that at some point we get to see a woman who is a world champion in one of the World Cup categories. As much as this sounds heresy to some who still think that a woman is not qualified for these types of motorsports. As it shows, it is enough to look at the results of Laia Sanz or Danica Patrick.
