BMW Motorrad Motorsport’s thoughts are with Langstädtler’s family, friends and team F73 Academy / Werk 2 Racing Team by MCA at this difficult time. The whole BMW Motorrad Motorsport community would like to express its most sincere condolences.

Langstädtler was on his second lap of the free pratice, when the tragic events on the track took place. With his BMW from the F73 Academy/Werk2 Racing Team by MCA, he was on his way to the Motodrom when he crashed at the entrance to the Motodrom. He landed if front of Daniel Kirchhoff who approached from behind. The 34-year-old from Rosendahl no longer had a chance to avoid the rider in front of him. “You’ve got about 200 km/h on it before the curve,” explained another rider.

The scene ended in a dramatic crash in which Langstädter was hit. The marshals from the Hockenheimring were on the spot immediately, recognized the gravity of the situation and immediately initiated resuscitation measures. Ambulances and helicopters were also alerted. But nothing helped. Leon Langstädtler could not be saved.
