Sachsenring has been confirmed as continuing to host the German round of the MotoGP World Championship.

While a contract extension for a MotoGP race in Germany was agreed between Dorna and ADAC during last month's Sachsenring round, the location for the event remained unconfirmed.

However Sachsenring Management GmbH and the ADAC have agreed to sign a new five-year contract to host of one of Germany's biggest sporting events, which has attracted an average of more than 200,000 fans over recent years.

"The Sachsenring is certainly the most ideal venue for a German motorcycle Grand Prix," explained ADAC Sport President Hermann Tomczyk. "I am therefore very pleased that it will now be hosting a world championship race for the next years. The event has been a huge success ever since 1998.

"Thanks to the dedicated work of all those involved, we can now look forward to celebrating the 20th anniversary of the German Motorcycle Grand Prix at the Sachsenring next year. My thanks also to Dorna Sports for their patience during the negotiations over the past months and to all the people on our side who have dedicated themselves to securing the future of the German world championship race."

"The German Motorcycle Grand Prix at the Sachsenring is a spectacular event with great fans and is an important fixture on the MotoGP calendar," said Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports. "We welcome the announcement that the German Motorcycle Grand Prix will continue to take place at the Sachsenring in the coming years."
