Sachsenring remains until end of 2016
29 June 2012 – The Sachsenring will continue to host the German MotoGP until at least the end of 2016, it was announced on Friday. An agreement has been finalised between MotoGP commercial rights holders Dorna Sports and German motorsport federation the ADAC.
“Over the past ten years, the Sachsenring has become Germany’s mecca of motorbike racing and the circuit will maintain this reputation in the future, thanks to our new contract,” says ADAC Sport President Hermann Tomczyk.
“The Sachsenring Management GmbH will be a reliable and committed partner; this is certainly good news, not only for Sachsenring’s friends and the fans of motorbike racing in Germany, but also for the people and the entire economic region.”
The deal has been backed up by Saxony Prime Minister Stanislaw Tillich and Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta, who is pleased to extend the race contract for the popular venue.
“MotoGP is extremely happy with the new agreement reached with ADAC,” he states. “We think that the Sachsenring is the best-equipped circuit to host the German Grand Prix in the future. We also welcome the opportunities the parties involved have given us to reach so many fans of two-wheel racing. This deal is very much in the interest of motorcycling.”
This year’s German Grand Prix will take place next weekend.
