The second official test of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup 2021 is underway at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto; after the first day, the Swiss Dominique Aegerter (Dynavolt Intact GP) leads the group.
The Reigning Cup winner of the MotoE, Jordi Torres (Pons Racing 40), was the fastest in the morning, in the first of three scheduled sessions. In the second session Dominique Aegerter took the lead, riding continuously under the time of 1:47, the only one in the group. In the third session of the day, the Dynavolt IntactGP team rider did it again, achieving the first place of the day ahead of Lukas Tulovic (Tech3 E-Racing), Miquel Pons (LCR E-Team), Eric Granado (One Energy Racing) and Jordi Torres.
The fastest rookie in the March test, Fermin Aldeguer (Openbank Aspar Team), took sixth place on the first day, just edging out fellow debutant Hikari Okubo (Avant Ajo MotoE). The veterans Alessandro Zaccone (Octo Pramac MotoE), the winner of the MotoE 2019 Matteo Ferrari (Indonesian E-Racing Gresini MotoE) and Xavier Cardelus (Avintia Esponsorama Racing) completed the top ten, with Colombian rookie Yonny Hernandez (Octo Pramac MotoE), just out of the top ten. Ferrari and Cardelus both crashed but without consequences.
Today Mattia Casadei, thirteenth, absent in the March test due to an injury, was back on track with the Ego Corsa of the Sic58 Squadra Corse team.
The program for the second day of testing includes a race simulation to allow riders, especially new ones, and teams, to familiarize themselves with the starting procedure and fast charging station directly on the grid. The starting grid was set on the basis of the combined results of the first two free sessions on the first day. Based on this criterion, Aegerter, Torres and Granado will be starting from the front row, followed by Zaccone, Ferrari and Aldeguer. This is the complete starting grid. Expected start time, 13:30 local time.
