The German round of the MotoGP championship will stay at the Sachsenring circuit until at least the end of 2016, series promoters Dorna said on Friday.

Dorna announced in a statement that it had signed a long-term contract extension with local organisers for the race near Chemnitz in eastern Germany.

The race from July 6-8, 2012 will be the 15th held at the circuit.

Germany has riders in all three categories, including Moto2 champion Stefan Bradl now racing in MotoGP.
