The first race on the Sachsenring near Hohenstein-Ernstthal was already held in 1927 making it one of the most steeped-in-tradition racetracks in Germany. The time-honoured natural racectrack quickly became a fixture in the international racing calendar – mainly for motorcycle races. In 1995 a traffic safety centre was created on the Sachsenring opening up new opportunities for car racing, too. Since its conversion in 1996, the racetrack meets the highest safety standards, features permanent state-of-the-art pits, a new start and finish tower as well as one of the most modern race control systems.
