Münnich Motorsport GmbH, which also competes under the title All-Inkl.com Racing, is an auto racing team founded by German racing driver and entrepreneur René Münnich in 2006. The team has been built around two areas of motorsport since its inception, rallycross and sports car racing, and has been backed by Münnich's personal business, domain registrar and web host All-Inkl.

The team currently competes in the World Touring Car Championship and the German Rallycross Championship.

Rallycross[edit]

Although the team previously competed in the FIA European Championships for Rallycross Drivers, their current rallycross efforts involve the German Rallycross Championship with a Škoda Fabia.

In February 2015 it was announced that Münnich Motorsport will be joining World RX with a self developed Audi S3[1]

Sportscars[edit]

Münnich's sports car efforts have been at the behest of Lamborghini, previously competing in the FIA GT Championship during the 2006 and 2007 seasons with a Murciélago before switching to the German ADAC GT Masters with a Gallardo. Münnich returned to Lamborghini for 2010 by entering the new Murciélago LP670 SV in the inaugural FIA GT1 World Championship, employing experienced sports car drivers Marc Basseng, Thomas Jäger, Christophe Bouchut, Dominik Schwager, and Nicky Pastorelli.

World Touring Car Championship[edit]

SEAT León WTCC (2013)[edit]

After the demise of the FIA GT1 World Championship, Münnich Motorsport made the decision to enter the World Touring Car Championship. The team will run three cars for René Münnich, Marc Basseng and Markus Winkelhock.[2] Winkelhock left the team in February 2013 and was replaced by defending champion Robert Huff who moved from Chevrolet.[3] Münnich was the team's only driver eligible for the Yokohama Independent Drivers' Trophy with both Huff and Basseng being reigning champions in the WTCC at the FIA GT1 World Championship respectively.[4] Also now Sabine Schmitz will be joining however this is to be announced.
