France GP: Jordi Torres in pole position

The Epole of the MotoE World Cup 2020 at the Le Mans circuit is completed. Jordi Torres (Pons Racing) was the fastest in the single lap with the time of 1'43.843. The Spaniard achieves his second EPole, ahead of Matteo Ferrari (TRENTINO Gresini MotoE ) 1'44.172 and of Mike Di Meglio (EG0,0 Marc VDS) with the time of 1'44.480.

Big step forward compared to free practice for Dominique Aegerter (Dynavolt Intact GP) and for Alejandro Medina (Aspar team) which lowers his time by almost two seconds.

Unlucky Epole for Mattia Casadei (Sic58 Squadra Corse) who lost the front a few curves from the finish line and for Alex De Angelis (OCTO Pramac MotoE ) that crashed in the warm-up lap; both will start from the last row in the afternoon race.

Tommaso Marcon (Tech3 E-Racing) will have to move back three positions on the starting grid for the penalty following the accident in Misano.
