Tickets

Ticket information

Your ticket, valid for Friday, Saturday Qualifying and Sunday Race Day, gives access to the fabulous T7 Honda Grandstand.  Our consecutively numbered tickets ensure you sit with your partner and the rest of the MotoExpress group.  The Sachsenring, with it’s 80 year heritage of motorcycle racing, can justifiably claim to be central Europe’s premier circuit.  From 1995, following the reconstruction of the new Sachsenring, the venue has gone from strength to strength, culminating in over 250,000 fans attending the 2008 MotoGP.

Ticket types

T7 Honda Grandstand

The most popular Sachsenring ticket.  Always the first to sell out.  Superb tracks views, and a giant video wall keeps you in touch with all the race action.  Your grandstand is in the centre of the stadium complex with its superb atmosphere.  Directly behind your grandstand is a huge catering and bar area.

All the above pictures were taken from the seats in T7 grandstand.

Your T7 ticket also allows you walk around the entire circuit and access the general admission areas.

Welcome reception BBQ party

The race weekend starts with a traditional German BBQ which is held in the hotel’s beer garden.  It’s a great opportunity to meet your fellow MotoGP fans.  After the BBQ you hop on-board the hotel’s shuttle bus for the short ride to Sachsenring party.

German Food and Drink

Can anyone resist the heady combination of a tasty Bratwurst or a spicy Currywurst washed down with a Stein or two of foaming beer?

Walk to the circuit

Although we have private bus transfers to the circuit, some guests choose to take the forest walk to the circuit.  It’s a scenic walk through a forest to the town of Hohenstein-Ernstthal and the Sachsenring circuit.

Extend your stay

We strongly recommend that you book extra nights.  Saxony is great region of Germany to holiday.  Unspoiled countryside and picturesque villages to discover.  The roads are a motorcyclists dream.  Don’t forget to visit the infamous Colditz Castle.
