A team owner, successful entrepreneur and experienced driver, René Münnich began his rallycross career in the FIA European Rallycross Championship in 2007, finishing fourth on his debut in Division 1A (now Euro RX3) in Hungary in a Muennich Motorsport Volkswagen Polo. He switched to Škoda machinery for the next four seasons after stepping up to Division 1 (now Euro RX1). 

Two years in the Super1600 category followed – yielding tenth in the points table on both occasions – with subsequent outings in Euro RX’s headlining class resulting in multiple podiums and final appearances. A high of fifth position in the overall standings in 2019 preceded a breakthrough victory at Lohéac in 2021.

Münnich has simultaneously been a regular in World RX since 2014, predominantly behind the wheel of a SEAT Ibiza and contesting a full season in 2016. The 2020 campaign saw him place 14th in the World Championship table, before he progressed through to the final for the first time in the 2021 curtain-raiser in Catalunya, finishing fifth.

Away from rallycross, the German contested the FIA World Touring Car Championship until 2016, while his ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport team won the 2012 FIA GT1 World Championship. Münnich himself reached the rostrum in the TCR International Series with WestCoast Racing in 2015 and took a clean sweep of sprint race victories in the 2019 TCR Middle East Series to clinch the Drivers’ crown.
