MotoE™ - 2019 was electrifying. Charge up for 2020!

Back on board the Energica Ego Corsas for the first time since the 2019 Valencia finale, the riders had a few new things to try ahead of the 2020 campaign. A new Ohlins front fork has been introduced to try and help with cornering, with Michelin also providing new front and rear tyres for the new season. Moreover, the Energica Ego Corsas now have new airflow cooling for the batteries, which in turn helps them to be charged quicker, with Energica and Enel testing new safety measures which included a louder buzzer when the bikes enter pitlane.

After the three sessions on Tuesday, Mike Di Meglio (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) and the returning Niki Tuuli (Avant Ajo MotoE) – the Finn not 100% fit after a recent operation to remove screws – rounded out the first top five of the season.

The sessions on Wednesday will run at slightly different times:
Session 1 – 09:30 LT (GMT+1)
Session 2 – 13:00
Session 3 – 16:00

Keep an eye across motogp.com and Jerez’ live timing to keep up with Wednesday’s action from the MotoE™ Test.
