MotoGP sees record 233k crowd at Sachsenring

Race remains biggest individual sporting event in Germany.

MotoGP saw a record crowd of 233,100 people at last weekend’s race at the Sachsenring, Germany.


  • Race remains the biggest individual sporting event in Germany
  • Beats previous attendance record of 232,202, set last year

Context: This follows the French Grand Prix also breaking its attendance record earlier this year. Interestingly, both France and Germany have found themselves without Formula One races in recent years, so MotoGP appears to be reaping the benefits.

Comment: Dan Rossomondo, chief commercial officer of Dorna Sports, told BlackBook Motorsport: “We saw spectacular racing in front of a gigantic crowd that created an atmosphere unique to MotoGP. Tip of the hat to all of the spectators and our promoters who make Sachsenring a special venue.”

Coming next: MotoGP moves on to Assen, Netherlands, for its next race on 25th June.
