FP2 Austria: Niki Tuuli in front of Mattia Casadei

FP2 Austria: Niki Tuuli in front of Mattia Casadei
The MotoE of the Octo Pramac team

Niki Tuuli continues to dominate the weekend MotoE in Austria. Despite the afternoon accident in which the Ajo team's bike MotoE was involved in a fire whose causes are still to be ascertained, the Finnish rider is always first, even in FP2. In the afternoon Tuuli set the clock at 1'35.255, six tenths better than the morning.

Tuuli precedes an excellent Mattia Casadei and Bradley Smith in the standings. It should be noted that Casadei, a driver of Simoncelli's teams, had raced on this track only once two years ago in the Red Bull Rookie cup, while Tuuli and Smith certainly have more experience on the Austrian circuit. Among the Italians we mention Matteo Ferrari and Niccolò Canepa, 6 ° and 7 °, Alex De Angelis 11 °, and Lorenzo Savadori 13 °.

Tuuli's motorcycle accident in the paddock

Among the two sessions, a fire incident involved the bike of Tuuli. Here is the official declaration of Dorna: “An investigation is currently underway to determine the reasons behind the fire that broke out today at the Red Bull Ring in Austria, where the second round of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup is currently taking place. The incident involved bike #66 of Niki Tuuli and happened during the charging process of the motorcycle. The fire was immediately extinguished by the fire department and the action was performed in complete safety. MotoE action will continue as scheduled."
