Munich. The Sachsenring is regarded as a motorcycle Mecca in Germany. For over 20 years, the LIQUI MOLY Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany has featured on the calendar of the motorcycle world championship, making it an established highlight on the race schedule, particularly for German riders. A total of eight riders will fly the flag for Germany at the MotoGP event in 2021: Marcel Schrötter will take his place on the Moto2 grid, while Freddie Heinrich lines up in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. In the Northern Talent Cup, a total of six German riders will gain experience on the international platform provided by MotoGP.

On the international motorcycle racing stage

The ranks of German starters at the 2021 LIQUI MOLY Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany are led by Marcel Schrötter from Pflugdorf near Landsberg am Lech. The experienced world championship rider has been racing in the motorcycle world championship since 2010. In 2013, he made the Moto2 class his sporting home. This year, he rides a Kalex bike run by the German LIQUI MOLY Intact GP team and has performed consistently in the first seven rounds of the season. Always in the top ten, Schrötter’s best result of the season so far was a fifth place at Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello.

Freddie Heinrich is also looking forward to this year’s highlight on two wheels at the Sachsenring. The 16-year-old from Lunzenau, who grew up not far from the racetrack in Saxony, impressed last year with strong performances in the inaugural season of the Northern Talent Cup. In the end, Heinrich finished third overall. In 2021, the ADAC Stiftung Sport rider is contesting his first year in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. As the only German in the field, he has gained international experience at the circuits in Portimão, Jerez and Mugello. The junior MotoGP class for aspiring young riders is staging races seven and eight of the season at the LIQUI MOLY Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany.

Young riders given a taste of MotoGP

Also getting a first impression of the MotoGP atmosphere at the Sachsenring are the riders in the Northern Talent Cup (NTC), which the ADAC launched at the start of last season together with MotoGP promoter Dorna and KTM. As well as rookies Korbinian Brandl (RBR-Racing) from Oberndorf in Bavaria and Valentino Herrlich (Busch & Wagner Racing Team) from Hofbiber in Hesse, experienced NTC riders will also appear in the series on the same bill as MotoGP: Limburg’s Julius Caesar Rörig (MCA Racing) lines up on the grid in the junior class this year, as does Dustin Schneider (PrüstelGP Junior Team) from Vogtland and Noel Willemsen (also PrüstelGP Junior Team) from the town of Mülheim an der Ruhr in North Rhein-Westphalia. Julius Coenen (Helena und Julius Racing Team HJRT) from Brackenheim in Baden-Württemberg joined the contingent of young German riders at short notice.
