Jordi Torres, 2020 MotoE Class Champion
"I am very happy to renew with the Sito team. Without a doubt, this is our best option. This season we have worked very well, with a great technical team, feeling like a family and in the end that is what is worth more. After evaluating several options, loyalty with the Sito team and the technical staff is what I want, and I am really delighted! I am comfortable, everything has gone well for us and now is the time to continue learning and enjoying together. Next year will be different, since being 'rookie' we had considered the year without pressure, with the sole objective of learning and trying to be in front, and now the scenario is different. We start from a very high level already, being aware of how MotoE racing is and we will have to raise our level to repeat the success of this season. We have the best weapons to achieve it again. This year we have managed everything very well and I want to continue learning together with PONS Racing. We have won, we have reached the podium, achieved pole positions and now we will have to be from the first race with the favorite tag. I don't see the time to start next season, since I will feel the pressure and it will be intense and I know that I will be surrounded by the best to manage it."

“Being able to announce Jordi's renewal for one more season makes us all very happy. In his season as a 'rookie' in MotoE he has done it in the best possible way, winning the title, and that is not easy as it is a completely different bike that requires time to adapt and having achieved success is thanks to the talent it has. Together we will face a season in which we already know each other and we will seek to repeat the successes achieved. I am sure that we will enjoy a good season again and, once again, thanks to the sponsors who accompany us and who make it possible.”
