It has been over a month now since the catastrophic fire incident at Jerez. It was a sad moment as most of the material related to MotoE was destroyed. As a result, the first race of the 2019 MotoE world championship had to be canceled and the calendar was revised. Now reports suggest that the final remaining test has been confirmed to take place at Valencia in June.

The final test schedule will also help Energica to plan things out to ready new e-bikes for the world championship. All of its suppliers are coordinating to speed up things and get the bikes up and going much before the deadline.

As per Dorna, ‘Primarily, the test will pick up where Jerez left off, with riders and teams focused on gaining experience with the bike and setup. Sessions will start from the grid for everyone to get to grips with race starts and grid procedures.’

‘Subject to weather, the last day – 19th of June – will kick-off with an E-pole simulation as riders test out qualifying with just one single fast lap at a time.’

‘The day will finish with a full race simulation, where riders will get a chance to practice overtakes and race strategy, with Energica awarding the winner with their very own motorcycle Energica Eva – the streetfighter model available for sale.’

‘Simulating qualifying and a full race is useful not only for the riders and teams but also for the organization of the Cup in order to fine-tune procedures ahead of MotoE’s debut at the Sachsenring in July.

‘For example, there will be a sighting lap ahead of the race but there is no need for a Warm Up lap on this parallel path of electric racing – so the three-day test will ensure everything is ready for liftoff in Germany.’
