Further information released following fire at MotoE™ Test

Initial findings have been discovered after the E-paddock at Jerez caught fire on March 14th

Tags MotoE, 2019

Although we are awaiting the official conclusion of the investigation by local police, initial evidence regarding the cause of the fire at the E-paddock of the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto on March 14th seems to point to a short circuit as the main cause of the incident.

The source of the short circuit has yet to be identified but, once the fire broke out, it ignited the high-density battery which is part of the high-performance charger used at MotoE™ events.

The motorbikes were not connected to the charging infrastructure at the time the fire began.
