CHIEFS at the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup have revealed a return to action for the electric bike teams as the series is set to zip back into life for a June test.
The series, which was left in doubt thanks to a massive fire that destroy nearly the entire paddock at Jerez last month, will head to the Circuit Ricardo Tormo on 17, 18 and 19 June for a full three days of testing as riders continue to get to grips with the new battery-powered bikes.
Eric Granado hit the top of the timesheets at the last test with the fastest time on day one before the big blaze hit overnight, but it could be all change as racers hit Valencia with qualifying and race simulations on the cards.
Subject to weather, the final day of testing – 19 June – will include an E-pole qualifying simulation, in classic one-lap Superpole format, ahead of a full race simulation where riders will get a taste of race strategy.
And along with bragging rights, the winner will take home a streetfighter model Eva electric road bike courtesy of one-make manufacturer Energica.
The three-day test is set to be the final outing for teams ahead of the Sachsenring season opener on 5-7 July.
