Results and summary of qualifying for the MotoE class at the Sachsenring:
World Superbike race one was declared a wet race and Alvaro Bautista led the championship by just sixteen points. Donington is an undulating track, made of lots of old-fashioned fast, sweeping curves before a short back straight followed by a chicane and two hairpins.

Results and summary of qualifying for the MotoGP class at the Sachsenring:
The final practice session for the premier class heated up, mostly literally, and more realistic tyre choices filtered through, the softs mostly abandoned in their blankets to rest for qualifying. Presumably tired of Fabio Quartararo stealing his thunder, Marc Marquez found half a second on the competition early in the session and then wore them down with scarily consistent low to mid 1:22s.
Results and summary of qualifying for the Moto3 class at the Sachsenring:
World Supersport Superpole took place on a dried out track.
World Superbike qualifying was on a drying track that got quicker as the session went on.
The final chance for the intermediate class to find some pace was accompanied by sun but not everyone got to fully enjoy the conditions. Tom Luthi did it from the top of the timesheets until the top 14 shootout brought lots of red sectors but only Brad Binder followed it all the way through. The KTM rider took over the lead in the final handful of minutes, courtesy of the only 1:23 time of the day. Luthi kept second position, a tenth and a half off the leader and only narrowly ahead of Remy Gardner.
Jules Danilo, on a Honda CBR600RR, set the quickest wet lap ahead of Kyle Smith and Federico Caricasulo.
