The 2021 FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup campaign gets going this week as the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto plays host to a three-day Official Test from the 2nd-4th of March.
Apart from the injured Mattia Casadei (Ongetta SIC58 Squadracorse), all the riders will be lapping on their electric Energica Ego Corsas in Andalucia, as preparations for the new season begin ahead of Round 1 at the same track in May. Reigning Cup winner Jordi Torres (Pons Racing 40) will be back on his bike as he, 2020 runner-up Matteo Ferrari (Team Gresini MotoE) and last year’s bronze medallist Dominique Aegerter (Dynavolt Intact GP) spearhead another exciting MotoE™ field.
Former MotoGP™ rider Yonny Hernandez (Octo Pramac MotoE) will be getting his first taste of MotoE™ action, and the Colombian isn’t the only rookie looking forward to their debuts in the electric class this season. Fermin Aldeguer (Openbank Aspar Team), Hikari Okubo (Avant Ajo MotoE), Corentin Perolari (Tech3 E-Racing), Miquel Pons (LCR E-Team), Andre Pires (Avintia Esponsorama Racing), Andrea Mantovani (Team Gresini MotoE) and Jasper Iwema (Pons Racing 40) will all be hunting for top rookie honours in 2021, as well as aiming to mix it at the front.
New names are joined by familiar names. Eric Granado (One Energy Racing), Lukas Tulovic (Tech3 E-Racing), Kevin Zannoni (LCR E-Team), Alessandro Zaccone (Octo Pramac MotoE), Maria Herrera (Openbank Aspar Team) and Xavi Cardelus (Avintia Esponsorama Racing) all return for another shot at becoming a World Cup winner.
