Hohenstein-Ernstthal. The LIQUI MOLY Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany at the Sachsenring is the motorsport highlight of the year and one of Germany’s biggest sporting events. The only MotoGP race in Germany throws up some interesting facts and figures.

4 tons of racetrack paints get the Sachsenring looking in top shape ahead of the Grand Prix.

6 different manufacturers line up in the 2021 MotoGP. As well as Japanese manufacturers Yamaha, Honda and Suzuki, Italian brands Ducati and Aprilla take their place on the world championship, alongside bikes from the Austrian manufacturer KTM.

Eight-time world champion Marc Marquez has won the MotoGP race at the Sachsenring seven times in a row. From pole position on each occasion. That number rises to ten victories when you consider all the classes the Spaniard has raced in.

10 kilometres of fencing surround the event site.

A maximum incline of 10 % and maximum descent of 12.8 % make the Sachsenring one of the most demanding circuits on the MotoGP calendar for the drivers.

12 permanent gravel beds, 8,400 metres of crash barriers, 34 garages and a 22.55-metre tower at the start/finish line the track.

14 LED panels will be used as digital flag signals around the Sachsenring for the first time this weekend, increasing safety levels for the riders.

15 additional kilometres of electric cable and 20 generators ensure there is sufficient power supply across the entire event site.

With 16 victories, Honda has been the most successful manufacturer at the Sachsenring since 1998. Honda drivers have also started the last nine German Grands Prix from pole position.

23 riders from 11 teams line up in the 2021 MotoGP. Nine of the riders come from Spain, seven from Italy.

25 kilometres of info cable are laid for telephones, the Internet and radio.

30 construction vehicles, trucks, wheel loaders, forklifts and cranes are required for recovery work, among other things.

The Sachsenring is located 30 km from Chemnitz. It has ten right-handers and just four left-hand corners. At 3.671 kilometres, it is the shortest track on the 2021 calendar.

40 cars ensure things run smoothly in various areas. They are used as fast intervention cars, media shuttles, safety cars and recovery vehicles.

At 42 years of age, Valentino Rossi is the oldest rider in the MotoGP field. The two youngest riders are 21-year-olds Fabio Quartararo and Iker Lecuona.

In summery temperatures, 80 air conditioners keep the TV compound, media centre and team tents cool.

The 2021 Grand Prix of Germany is the 82nd Grand Prix on German soil and the 23rd at the new Sachsenring.

95 containers house test laboratories, material stores, TV workspaces, and additional sanitary facilities.

150 Alpina Airfence modules around the Sachsenring significantly improve safety for the riders in MotoGP and the support series.

The Moto2 race at the Sachsenring is the 200th Moto2 race since the class was introduced in 2010.

298.2 km/h is the top speed recorded at the very technical Sachsenring. The record was set by Andrea Dovizioso on his Ducati in 2015.

450 volunteers are deployed in sporting roles as marshals, technical scrutineers and starters. They also support race control and the paddock crew and take care of track work.

The Sachsenring will continue to host MotoGP until at least 2026. In May, the ADAC and MotoGP rights holder Dorner extended their long-term partnership by a further five years.

100,000 cable ties are available for all kinds of work.
