Ducati Team arrives at Sachsenring for German GP

160713_101

Following Assen, the Ducati Team stays in the northern part of Europe for the ninth round of the MotoGP World Championship in Germany, which marks the half-way point of the 2016 season. The race is scheduled for this weekend at the Sachsenring circuit, close to the town of Chemnitz in what was the former East Germany.

The Sachsenring is one of the shortest and slowest tracks on the calendar, but is actually one of the most difficult. Its anti-clockwise layout includes numerous unique corners, almost all left-handers, as well as various ups and downs.

Dovizioso, who notched up his 150th GP in the premier class at Assen, scored a third-place podium finish in MotoGP in 2012, but last year was unable to finish the race following a crash. In 2015 Iannone, who was fifth at the end of the opening lap, maintained that position until the chequered flag.

The weekend timetable gets underway on Friday morning with the first Free Practice session at 09.55 CET, while the 30-lap race is scheduled for Sunday at 14.00 CET.
