Parent company the CRP Group are the perfect backdrop of experience and expertise for Energica’s ventures into pushing and shaping the future of e-mobility too – creating the perfect mix of proficiency and innovation that has seen Energica become a byword for electric excellence.

Bringing our know-how into this project and creating a winning synergy together with Dorna and Enel has resulted in an incredible advantage for the World Cup. MotoE can count not only on a close-knit team, but on a new joint expertise that has brought on screen a new series with new technology, as well as a new format live for fans at the racetrack and on TV to enjoy. Our footprint? Teaming up together to push the boundaries of innovation further into the world of motorsport. The Electric Motor Valley finally landed in the world of two-wheeled motorsport; we have convinced even the most skeptical motorcycle racing enthusiasts and we aim at continuing to ensure them with the most exciting and thrilling show in full electric. Our Ego Corsa machines have been highly praised by the riders taking part in this innovative series and MotoE has proven to be an invaluable platform for Energica’s business strategies and technological advancements. These first two seasons have helped build a tremendous amount of experience which is constantly transferred to our road models. From race to road we will keep up the good work. We are writing a new chapter in the history of motorsport and motorcycle racing, so stay with us to make history together!”

Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports: “The FIM Enel MotoE World Cup is one of our newest projects and has proved one of our most exciting since it began, with incredible races and tight competition. Energica, and their world-leading motorcycles, have proven a vital part of that success every step of the way. I’m delighted that we will continue working together in the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup and am proud to call Energica a partner.”

The last chapter of the 2020 season has all the ingredients to be a showstopper: four riders within 15 points and two individual races to award the ultimate winner of this unusual but exciting year of racing. Reigning title holder Matteo Ferrari (Team Trentino Gresini MotoE) leads the way with a four-point advantage over Dominique Aegerter (Dynavolt IntactGP), while Jordi Torres (Pons Racing 40) and Mattia Casadei (Ongetta Sic58 Squadracorse) are seven and fifteen points in arrears, respectively, in third and fourth.

With many other riders looking to end the season on a high note, this round will bring some extra challenges: first of all, the notoriously changeable weather of Le Mans, and second, the fact that this is the first time for MotoE at the French track. May the best win!
