The Munch team used a URS 500cc four-cylinder engine in a British-made Rickman frame, and the first race was at the non-championship Austrian Grand prix on April 29, 1970, which was won by Kczor and Hoppe in a Muchn one-two. Hoppe also managed an impressive fourth at the German Grand Prix a week later, but shortly after the team fell apart. For details, contact: 0870-0273606.
