A New Schedule Adds Races
Following the devastating fire in the paddock that housed all the bikes in Jerez, Spain. Moto E has released a new schedule that actually adds races to the calendar. According to the new schedule, there will be four events and six races held to finish the season.
Here’s a look at where and when the events will be held:
- Sachsenring, Germany (July 5 to 7)
- Red Bull Ring, Spielberg, Austria (August 9 to 11)
- Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, San Marino and Riviera di Rimini (September 13 to 15)
- Circuit Ricardo Tormo, Comunitat Valenciana (November 15 to 17)
The events in Germany and Austria will hold one race each. The final two events will have two races each. This allows the end of the season to land in November at the same time that the MotoGP 2019 season will close, according to RideApart.
It’s a shame the schedule needed to be updated at all, but it’s good to see the officials for Moto E managed to make a new calendar work. The addition of the final event in November is a smart move, and it will be good to see the season conclude on a high point.
The fire that necessitated the new schedule is still under investigation. None of the bikes were charging at the time of the fire, so a charging issue has been ruled out as the cause.
