The future of the German GP was announced in a Press Conference at the Sachsenring today, with Klaus Klötzner, Chairman of ADAC Sachsen, joining the stage to speak alongside Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna Sports CEO, and Hermann Tomczyk, ADAC Sports President. The Sachsenring is confirmed on the calendar for 2020 and 2021, and conversations about a longer extension are already starting to get underway.
The German GP is an important event in one of the biggest markets in the region and it was a fitting moment to announce an extension, alongside the official launch of the Northern Talent Cup, a project aimed at promoting and supporting motorcycle racing in Germany and across northern and central Europe.
