About the circuit
The second of the Online Challenges for the MotoGP™ eSport Championship sees us heading to the Sachsenring in Germany. Jump on-board Bradley Smith’s Red Bull KTM RC16 to race in the Online ‘Time Attack’ session and set an unbeatable time in dry conditions.
Car and bike races have been held on closed public roads in the area around the town of Chemnitz, Germany since the 1920s and were still taking place until as recently as 1990. It was decided, however, that the five-mile course through such a densely populated area was no longer suitable and a new circuit was built five miles west of Chemnitz in 1996.
Although mainly used as a driver training centre and road transport safety station, Sachsenring first hosted MotoGP™ in 1998 and many improvements have taken place since then, including a drastic layout enhancement in 2001. Numerous tight corners make it one of the slower tracks on the calendar but there is never any shortage of close racing action.
Remember, through each challenge period you need to prove your worth in the lower classes first. Beat the qualifying times and progress up to the next class. Want to skip straight to the premier-class? Record an exceptional lap time and get sent straight to phase 2 - the MotoGP™ Challenge.
