19.06.2022 - MotoGP Sachsenring

Paddock radar from the 2022 LIQUI MOLY Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany at the Sachsenring

  • New records in MotoGP, Moto3 and in the grandstands
  • Three former motorcycle world champions pay a visit
  • Tickets for next year go on sale on Sunday afternoon

A weekend for the record books
The fans are back and produced a new crowd record. 230,202 spectators flocked to the Sachsenring over the course of the race weekend. The previous record had stood since 2011, when 230,133 fans visited the circuit. The MotoGP protagonists were also in pursuit of records at the Sachsenring. Track and top-speed records fell in the top MotoGP class and Moto3. Ducati factory rider Francesco Bagnaia produced the fastest lap ever ridden on the 3.7-kilometre Sachsenring in free practice 3 on Saturday morning. The Italian’s record-breaking lap time: 1:19.765 minutes or an average 165.6 km/h. fellow Ducati man Jorge Martin from Spain recorded a new record top speed of 304.2 km/h.

Motorcycle from a 3D printer
KTM is using pioneering technology in the construction of its racing motorcycles: Some of the bikes’ parts are produced in a 3D printer. According to the Austrian manufacturer, 70 percent of the frame comes from additive manufacturing. After production, all the parts are welded together by hand by a specialist.

Electric fun
Six riders from the MotoGP circus got down to business as early as the Thursday before the race: Johann Zarco, Marcel Schrötter, Jeremy Alcoba, Sergio Garcia, Tatsuki Suzuki and David Muñoz went head to head in a fun race with electric pit bikes at the Arena-E kart track in Mülsen. Victory went to Spanish Moto3 rookie Muñoz.

Pure ecstasy
The highlight of the support programme again awaited fans in the kart hall at the Sachsenring: The traditional rider presentation on Saturday evening. MotoGP riders Marco Bezzecchi and Remy Gardner enjoyed the walkabout among the fans, as did the LIQUI MOLY IntactGP riders from the Moto2 class, Marcel Schrötter and Jeremy Alcoba. The kart hall was packed and the atmosphere reached boiling point.

Dekra guests experience the Motorcycle Grand Prix
Not only was there a great atmosphere in the kart hall, but also in the T13 Dekra stand. Many Dekra guests enjoyed the MotoGP action during an event put on by the expert organisation in the Sachsenkurve corner. They included Guido Kutschera, Chairman of the Management Board of Dekra Automobil GmbH, and Jann Fehlauer, Managing Director of Dekra Automobil GmbH.

Distinguished guests
The LIQUI MOLY Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany again attracted many big names from the world of sport and politics in 2022. In Giacomo Agostini, Sandro Cortese and Toni Mang, three former world champions attended the event. In 2001, Mang became the only German motorcycle racer to be inducted into the official MotoGP Hall of Fame. The Bavarian won five world titles and 42 Grand Prix races in the 1980s. Olympic biathlon champion Michael Rösch also visited the Sachsenring, as did the Saxony’s Interior Minister Armin Schuster and his colleague from the ministry for science, culture and tourism, Barbara Klepsch.

Tradition meets modernity
A very special trophy awaits the winner of this year’s LIQUI MOLY Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany: The trophy represents the new and the old Sachsenring, and in doing so the past and future of the iconic circuit in Hohenstein-Ernstthal. The timing could not be better, as the Sachsenring is celebrating its 95th birthday in 2022. The history of the racetrack dates back to 26th May 1927, when it hosted the first Badberg-Viereck-Rennen zur Himmelfahrt.

MotoGP gets the travel bug
The wandering MotoGP circus travels to Netherlands immediately after the LIQUI MOLY Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany. Next weekend, Assen hosts the Dutch TT – the most iconic Grand Prix in the motorcycle world championship. The MotoGP protagonists will use the time between the two events in very different ways: From sightseeing in Hannover and Amsterdam, and a charity truck convoy for children in a hospice, to a return journey to Spain. After the Grand Prix in the Netherlands, the riders can look forward to a five-week “summer holiday”.

On the “Road to MotoGP”
Five young Germans start this year in the Northern Talent Cup, the ADAC-supported talent factory for motorcycle racing. Luca Göttlicher, Rocco Sessler, Valentino Herrlich, Julius Coenen and Dustin Schneider met for a group photo during their home event at the Sachsenring. The five teenagers hope one day to follow in the footsteps of the last German world champion, Sandro Cortese. Now retired, Cortese won the Moto3 title in 2012 and was crowned champion in the Supersport World Championship in 2018. Schneider impressed with third place in the Saturday race.

A big milestone approaches
The German motorcycle grand prix will celebrate a very special anniversary in 2023: The Grand Prix of Germany will take place at the “new” Sachsenring for the 25th time in a row. Since the inaugural season of the motorcycle world championship in 1949, 83 Grand Prix races have been held on German soil (including the 2022 race), of which 36 were at the Sachsenring.

Tickets available for 2023
Tickets for the 2023 Motorcycle Grand Prix of Germany go on sale at 16:00 on Sunday. Tickets for next summer’s race weekend are available via the usual channels: In the online ticket shop at adac.de/motogp, by phone via the hotline on 03723/8099111, by E-mail to info@sachsenring-event.de, and at all the usual booking offices.
