One of the biggest events of the year, every MotoGP fan needs to come here. A truly great venue with access and viewing all over the track. We have two outstanding hotel packages based 25 minutes from the track. We host a traditional opening dinner in a local restaurant with special guests - a weekend of wonderful Saxon hospitality!
The Germans keep this gem of an event a state secret - one we would like to share with you! Always easy-going, great fun, great facilities, great action! A good riding destination and a very good value for money.
Formerly a road circuit; this is the home to the true moto-heads in Germany. It is a little-known fact that the 2 stroke motorcycle engine was invented near here! Coinciding with the fall of the Iron Curtain around 1990, the current 3.671 km circuit was built in 1996 and retains little semblance of the old track, with MotoGP first arriving here in 1998. Low-gear, paint-swapping corners now dominate much of the track, allowing the pent-up power of the machines to be released only after the final turns onto the two straights in the final section. The back downhill straight is the fastest point on the track leading into the sweeping Sachsen turn which always has a lot of action - we recommend the stands 12,13 and the catered 14.
After Brno, this is the event we have been coming to the longest - since 2004! It is also one of the largest events - Sunday crowds top well over 100,000; and the circuit handles the crowd size beautifully with little traffic.
Our opening party is at the traditional Ratskeller, with wonderful food and drink, and we always get an 'insider' to come and share beers and stories from the world of MotoGP!
This is a great event to go VIP - the pit roof suit is at the highest point on the circuit so you get great views; and service road tours are INCLUDED, giving you a rare chance to see the bikes up close in action!
Both packages are based in the historic city of Chemnitz (formerly Karl Marx Stadt when under communist rule) about 25 minute drive to track. Many great pubs, restaurants (and especially clubs) mean there is not shortage of night life. Our superior package is in a beautiful 4* hotel just slightly out of the city centre, in a leafy suburb walkable to the centre. Our classic package is in the city, at a 3*+ hotel.
We take you to the track and back on Fri/Sat/Sun and to our Friday opening dinner with special guests. Saturday evening our team guests may opt to stay for dinner with the team at the track; otherwise it is a free evening. Our German speaking guide can advise on options. On Sunday night we have a optional closing dinner at a classic German 'bier garten'. Perfect Saxon hospitality!
