Folger is a part of the Motorcycle World Championship since 2008. His first podium he achieved in the sweet age of 15 at the French Grand Prix 2009 in Le Mans when he rode in the former 125cc class.

He will be teaming up alongside the 2016 Moto2 world champion Johann Zarco in the Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team.

Part of Jonas’ new duties will be to promote his home race at the famous Sachsenring circuit. He will therefore be present at a motorcycle fare (tba). More Infos you will find on our website or facebook fanpage

Jonas is looking forward to his new task: “I feel honoured and I am happy I will be the ambassador for Sachsenring in 2017. I think the Sachsenring circuit is special for any german rider. The atmosphere is unique there. Last year I achieved a podium for the first time on this circuit and also my fanclub has its origin in Hohenstein-Ernstthal, the town of Sachsenring.”
