Tight, twisty and sometimes throwing up a different kind of Moto3 showdown, the Sachsenring awaits for the lightweight class.

What was 28 points is now just 16 as Moto3 heads for Germany, with GasGas Aspar’s Izan Guevara now within a third place of teammate Sergio Garcia as the latter continues to lead the fight for the crown. Garcia took some solid points in the front group at Sachsenring last season and Guevara, then a rookie, headed the second group, completing the top ten. What will await in 2022’s Liqui Moly Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland?

Leopard’s Dennis Foggia will likely be a key challenger, with a podium at the track last year and coming from some great speed only dented by a technical issue on race day in Barcelona. Teammate Tatsuki Suzuki is also on a roll of form. Meanwhile Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Jaume Masia will, like Foggia, want more from Germany, the Spaniard having only taken eighth last time out and losing some ground.

The track is such that the veterans and those who unlock the secrets of the Sachsenring have more chance to pull away than at many venues, so it could be a classic showdown for some seriously valuable points. Who will head into Assen with the advantage?
