Second season of the MotoE World Cup for Alessandro Zaccone. The Italian rider will compete in the MotoGP electric class with the Octo Pramac MotoE team after the first season with the Gresini Racing team. In the first participation in MotoE so bad luck for Zaccone who started the season with a knee injury during the first test session with the Energica Ego Corsa at Jerez.
On 2021, Zaccone will have Yonny Hernandez as his teammate; the two new riders have reached an agreement with the Octo Pramac MotoE team to replace Alex De Angelis and Josh Hook. The former ended his career as a professional rider last year while the latter chose the World Endurance Championship due to the overlapping of the calendars of the two competitions.
For Yonny Hernandez, the 2014-year-old Colombian rider, it is a return to the Pramac Racing team with which he raced in MotoGP in 2015 and XNUMX.
Less than a month to see the MotoE on track: the first official test session will begin on March 2nd in Jerez while the first race is scheduled for May 2nd on the same Andalusian track.
