MotoE, or the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, is a type of electric motorcycle race that is sanctioned by the FIM.
Since 2019, the FIM Enel MotoETM World Cup has been a new addition to the MotoGP World Championship, an all-electric series powered by Energica. The series has seen close racing and great clashes on some of motorcycle racing's most historic courses.
Since its beginning, the series has used the Energica Ego Corsa motorcycle, produced by Energica Motor Company, but will switch to Ducati in 2023.
Energica was chosen as the series' single manufacturer for the new era of electric motorcycle race, and it will continue to do so until the end of 2022. The Ego Corsa machine, a racing-oriented electric motorcycle capable of incredible performances and highly praised by the series' riders, has been the show's star.
There is plenty of enthusiasm for the final season of MotoE's Energica Era, with several current stars confirmed for 2022 and new additions and returns.
The schedule for this season includes seven events, all of which are doubleheaders for the first time, with the season finale on September 4th at Energica's home circuit, the Misano World Circuit.
The new calendar includes some welcome additions, including Jerez, Le Mans, Assen, Red Bull Ring, and Misano, as well as the Autodromo Nazionale del Mugello (28-29 May) and Finland's KymiRing (9-10 July).
Each electric motorcycle race has two events on Saturday and Sunday, and a new qualifying structure will be used to match the other MotoGPTM classes. MotoETM will compete in a Q1-Q2 qualifying format with the FIM MotoGPTM World Championship classes this season. Riders used to get one shot at a qualifying lap in E-Pole, but this season the Cup aligns with MotoGPTM, Moto2TM, and Moto3TM. New chargers provided by MotoETM title sponsor Enel have enabled this qualifying style. In either Q1 or Q2, there is no limit on the number of laps a rider can complete, and the two riders who advance from Q1 will receive an additional rear tire. The results of Q2 and Q1 will determine race 1 and Race 2 grid positions.
