The Sachsenring in Germany is set to host MotoGP until at least 2026 thanks to a new contract with Dorna.

The Sachsenring circuit has been the home of MotoGP in Germany since 1998 and will continue to be so until at least 2026, Dorna Sports announced. The venue has consistently brought over 200 000 fans through its gates before COVID-19 hit, and MotoGP will return there in a little over a month.

“We are very proud to announce the Sachsenring will remain part of the MotoGP calendar for a further five years.” said Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpelata.

“The German Grand Prix is a huge event for motorsport in the area, region, and country, and Germany has a long and rich history within motorcycle racing. It’s a vital stop on our calendar and we’re delighted to secure the future of the event, returning to the unique Sachsenring until at least 2026.”

MotoGP also recently announced Finland will stay on the calendar until 2026 as well.
