At the German round of the 2023 FIM Motorcycle World Championship from June 16 till June 18, the distinctive DEKRA logo will feature on a hospitality unit with the inspection company from Stuttgart also making use of its own promotion area at the racetrack.
"DEKRA is representing safety – on roads and racetracks alike, on four and two wheels all the same. This is exactly why DEKRA desires to be close to the action at Germany's most important motorcycle race of the year", says DEKRA Germany Chairman Guido Kutschera.
And there is plenty of action to look forward to in the 2022 MotoGP season: With motorcycle legend Valentino Rossi having retired at the end of last year, three World Champions take to the track in the premier class – Marc Márquez, Joan Mir and Fabio Quartararo. However, no German rider is part of the 2022 MotoGP line-up that features renowned manufacturers Aprilia, Ducati, Honda, KTM, Suzuki and Yamaha. The 2022 season will be contested by 24 riders over 21 action-packed Grands Prix with each race being run in the range of 100 to 130 kilometres for a duration of approximately 45 minutes – only for the riders to beat each other by a whisker at the finish line.
When the World Championship hits the 3.617-kilometre Sachsenring the "smaller classes" will be in action as well, and with German outfits competing for overall glory: Liqui Moly Intact GP with Marcel Schrötter in Moto2 and CFMoto Racing Prüstel GP in Moto3.
Established in 1949, the FIM Motorcycle World Championship staged its first ever German Grand Prix only two years after its inception. Ever since the 1998 season the Sachsenring at Hohenstein-Ernstthal in Saxony has been home to the German round and is going to host MotoGP till at least 2026.
