Di Meglio masters the final day of MotoE™

Frenchman takes to the top late on Sunday, but Smith remains fastest overall

Tags 2019

Like Moto2™, the MotoE™ grid had a final day of testing in Jerez to continue getting to grips with the Energica Ego Corsa. But the weather conditions didn't make it easy, with a damp track in the morning then getting a downpour mid-way through the day. Given the conditions, no one was able to better laptimes from the day before, so Bradley Smith (One Energy Racing) retains his best time in the combined standings, thanks to his 1'50.265 he put in on Saturday morning, when three-tenths separated him from his closest rival Niki Tuuli (Ajo Motorsport MotoE). Mike Di Meglio (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) and Mattia Casadei (Ongetta SIC58 Squadra Corse) were in third and fourth place, ahead of Matteo Ferrari (Trentino Gresini MotoE).

On Sunday in the more difficult conditions, however, it was Mike Di Meglio who took to the top. The Frenchman took first late in the day with a 1'52.160, seeing him pull ahead of another solid day for Smith by a little over a tenth. The Briton therefore ended Day 2 second overall, ahead of Eric Granado (Avintia Esponsorama Racing) and Randy De Puniet (LCR E-Team). Josh Hook (Alma Pramac Racing) took, ahead of fifth Lorenzo Savadori (Trentino Gresini MotoE) and Kenny Foray (Tech3 E-Racing).

Marvin Fritz (Dynavolt Intact GP), who took over testing duty for the team from Jesko Raffin on Saturday so that the Swiss rider could participate in the final round of FIM CEV Repsol Moto2™ European Championship, Sete Gibernau (Pons Racing) and Nico Terol (Ángel Nieto Team) completed the top ten on Day 3.

The next MotoE™ Official Test will take place on the 13th, 14th and 15th of March in Jerez - which also hosts the first ever round of the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup next season.
