MotoE World Cup
The Fim Enel MotoE World Cup is the new electric class of the MotoGP Championship; an additional motorcycle category compared to the already established MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 classes. The competition kicked off for the first time in 2019, on July 7, at the German GP. This year, the pilots of the MotoE compete in 14 races on 7 European circuits. The first stage is on the Jerez de la Frontera track from 29 April to 1 May, while the conclusion of the MotoE 2022 will be in Italy, in Misano, from 3 to 5 September, for the San Marino GP. The dates of the MotoE World Cup are the same in which the races of the other classes of the world championship take place (MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3). (Here the MotoE 2022 calendar )
Compared to previous years, the race weekend schedule has changed; from this year, two free practice sessions and qualifying in Q1 and Q2 style will take place on Friday, race 1 on Saturday afternoon and race 2 on Sunday after the MotoGP race.
Eleven teams are registered for the competition for a total of 11 riders. The teams are the same ones that also compete in the other classes of the World Championship.
