The Competence Center

In 2007, the two managing directors Josef Hofmann and Josef Meier placed the headstone in Stephanskirchen at Rosenheim for the construction of the alpha Racing Competence Center.


It emerged three more factory buildings that have been custom made for the development, construction and production of racing motorcycles. Alpha Group includes the companies alpha Technik GmbH & Co KG, a specialist for homologation and technical accessories for motorcycles, the Eurospeedway Lausitz race track, the personal services provider PC & L and the motorcycle dealer Motorrad Meier.
Within the group, alpha Technik provides motorsport at the highest level since 1996. In 2000, the Bavarian team with Jörg Teuchert could win the World Supersport Championship with Yamaha.


Several titles and numerous podium finishes in the International German Motorcycle Championship (IDM) in the Supersport and Superbike classes followed. At last, winning of the championship in the IDM Superbike class on a 2012 BMW S 1000 RR could be celebrated.


Our Competence Center is equipped with the latest technology. Among others there are two engine test benches and a roller dynamometer for racetrack simulation.
