MotoE™: Granado fastest as Spinelli wins race simulation

Testing has now concluded and it’s a familiar name on top – with a new one making waves

Wednesday, 05 April 2023

The three-day FIM Enel MotoE™ World Championship Test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya has drawn to a close, with Eric Granado (LCR E-Team) continuing his streak at the top of the timesheets. The Brazilian’s best lap of the Test was a 1:47.221, while it was Nicholas Spinelli (Pons Racing 40) who won Day 3’s race simulation run.

The race simulation took place in the early afternoon of the final day, as the riders lined up on the grid and took part in a seven-lap dash as a warm up for the start of the season at the French GP. Randy Krummenacher (Dynavolt Intact GP MotoE™) and Mattia Casadei (Pons Racing 40) took the chequered flag in P2 and P3, two seconds adrift of Spinelli, but not all riders showed their full potential.

In terms of the combined top five across Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday’s dry weather running, it was race sim winner Spinelli who set the second fastest time – 0.189s adrift of Granado. Casadei, Matteo Ferrari (Felo Gresini MotoE™) and Andrea Mantovani (RNF MotoE™ Team) rounded out a fastest quintet split by 0.642s on their Ducati V21L machines.
