The FIM Enel MotoE World Cup has its first double race weekend of the season at the TISSOT Grand Prix of Emilia Romagna and the Rimini Riviera.
Previously, the E-Pole qualifying session decided the starting grid for both Race 1 and Race 2. From now on, the starting grid of the second race of the MotoE will be based on the final positions of Race 1.
E-Pole will remain an exciting and unique session, with plenty on the line as riders fight it out for Race 1 grid positions. The new format for the Race 2 grid will simply decrease the risk of a rider losing out twice in one weekend if they suffer a problem in E-Pole, as well as rewarding those who have achieved a good result in Race 1. In addition, it will create two even more distinct races at each double-header event, adding to the spectacle for riders and fans alike.
Riders who are not classified in Race 1 will line up at the back of the Race 2 grid in the order in which they were classified in E-Pole.
