The first races for the eCRP 1.2 team in the TTXGP EU in assen have been nearly perfect.

CRP Racing and the eCRP 1.2 made a strong debut with Italian rider Alessandro Brannetti at the Assen circuit.

Brannetti qualified on the pole, set the fastest race lap, placed second in the first race and then won the second race, making for a great weekend for the factory team at the first meeting of the TTXGP EU.

In race one CRP Racing chose a conservative strategy to learn the track, but were still within 2.8 seconds of the leader at the finish.

In race two Brannetti was given the green light to run the eCRP 1.2 and proceeded to capture the podium. In his effort he set the fastest lap, 2:01.218 besting his qualifying time and came to the finish holding a nine second lead over the nearest rival.

It was a great weekend for the team showing the winning heritage of the CRP Group and CRP Racing could make the transition from traditional racing to state-of-the-art electric racing vehicles.

The technical staff received reward for their hard work with an excellent debut in the next generation of motorsport.
