MotoE™: Granado demotes Aegerter to P2 in Jerez Test

The Brazilian turned the tables on Day 2 in Andalucia as rookie Aldeguer impresses

It’s the same top two that we saw on Day 1 but on Day 2 of the Official FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup Jerez Test, Eric Granado (One Energy Racing) has taken top honours to demote Dominique Aegerter (Dynavolt Intact GP) to second place. Rookie Fermin Aldeguer (Openbank Aspar Team) was third in the standings, the impressive young Spaniard is taking to MotoE™ like a duck to water and finishes Day 2 within half a second of Granado.

Granado and Aegerter have started 2021 pre-season testing in fine form. The One Energy Racing rider’s 1:48.143 in the final session was the best lap of the test so far, beating Aegerter’s time from Day 1 quite convincingly as the Swiss rider experienced technical issues in the second session, allowing him to only complete a couple of laps.

Aldeguer has been the surprise package so far, the 15-year-old making the Energica Ego Corsa his own to finish a tenth and a half ahead of his fourth-placed teammate Maria Herrera. Reigning Cup winner Jordi Torres (Pons Racing 40) was just over a tenth back from Herrera to round out the top five.

For the first time ever, the riders had the possibility of charging their bikes with pitlane chargers during the session. The new charger will be used on the grid to gain an extra lap that the riders have been losing when coming out of pitlane to do the sighting lap ahead of lights out, and there will a race simulation at 13:00 local time on Day 3 in Jerez to see how the chargers work on the grid.
