MotoE Test 2022 in Jerez - Swiss rider Dominique Aegerter wins the race simulation ahead of Héctor Garzò and Mattia Casadei. Eric Granado retired due to a crash and Jordi Torres due to a technical problem.

The latest test of the MotoE 2022 ended with a nine-lap race simulation at the Circuito de Jerez - Angel Nieto. The race took place in the late afternoon of Wednesday to allow the track to dry completely after the rain that fell during the night. The objectives of the race simulation were: to test one more time the starting procedures, in particular the battery recharge on the grid, and to allow the rookies to try a race start.
Eric Granado started from the first position on the grid, flanked in the front row by Dominique Aegerter and Matteo Ferrari. At the start, some riders preferred to stay behind the group to carry out a race simulation with a free track; among these Granado, Ferrari, Torres and Smith. The other riders did not want to give up overtaking, in particular Aegerter, Garzò and Casadei who fought for a long time to win the race.

Dynavolt Intact GP rider Dominique Aegerter was the first to pass under the checkered flag, followed at 1.601 seconds by Hector Garzò and Mattia Casadei, at 6.702 seconds. Two laps from the end, Eric Granado crashed at turn 1. Technical problems instead for Jordi Torres who returned to the pits on the second lap.
The fastest rider at the end of the test is Garzò, with the Tech3 E-Racing rider who signed the best laptime in 1:48.458. Behind him Dominique Aegerter at 22 thousandths and Matteo Ferrari at 25 thousandths from the Swiss rider who precedes him.

Fourth fastest was Eric Granado, with the Brazilian two tenths off Garzo, ahead of team mate Miquel Pons. Mattia Casadei was the sixth fastest in these three days of testing, preceding Hikari Okubo, Xavier Cardelus, Jordi Torres and Bradley Smith. Niccolò Canepa and the OCTO Pramac riders Xavi Fores and Kevin Manfredi did not participate in the test day, engaged in the test of the Le Mans 24h race of the EWC.
At this point, the teams and riders return home but will be back in Jerez de la Frontera for the first race of the MotoE World Cup 2022, later this month, for the Spanish GP. For the event, two free practice sessions are scheduled, plus the qualifying session in the new Q1 and Q2 format and two races, one on Saturday afternoon and one on Sunday, after the MotoGP race.
