According to German website Freie Presse, this stalement situation could change in the following weeks as ADAC could be replaced by the Sachsenring Rennstreckenmanagent Gesellschaft (SRM) after the local government of Saxony stepped in to try to keep the highly popular MotoGP event in their area, as it brings in over 230,000 visitors and beefs up the local economy.
