Germany has secured its place on the MotoGP calendar for at least the next five years, however the circuit is yet to be confirmed.

The Sachsenring currently hosts the event, but Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta stated: "We and the ADAC will be making a joint announcement in the next few weeks concerning the venue for the German MotoGP round."

ADAC Sports President Hermann Tomczyk added: "The Motorcycle Grand Prix is one of the sportingevents in Germany that draws the biggest crowds. We are very pleased that we have secured the future of the German round of the World Championship for the next five years. The world's top motorcycle racing stars will be lining up on German tracks until at least 2021.

"I would like to thank Dorna for being such excellent partners and also everyone on our side for their commitment over recent months in securing the future of the German Motorcycle Grand Prix. We are already on the home straight in our negotiations with the Sachsenring to serve as the venue for the next five years. We hope to get the thumbs-up from our partners in Saxony by mid-August at the latest."
