MotoE’s bike manufacturer Energica has been busy building new Corsa units for the first-ever edition of the all-electric world series on July 7th at the Sachsenring in Germany, following the devastating fire in Jerez in March which destroyed most of the bikes.
“On the day after the fire in Jerez, we knew a special effort had to be made” says Energica’s CEO Livia Cevolini. “There was no time to waste, despite witnessing what happened – which was surely something very hard to deal with. We can now very proudly say that there is indeed a sure timeframe for the new Ego Corsa machine to be ready, and that it fits in with the timing for the series to begin in Germany.
“I can’t thank everyone involved enough for the massive effort that is being put in place and all the teams, riders, fans and partners for their huge support. There is still a little bit of time left, but it’s surely worth the wait.”
By the end of May, Energica will have built all of the Ego Corsa machines needed, in a record time of less than three months.
MotoE finally gets underway at Valencia’s Ricardo Tormo circuit on 17-19 June for the pre-season official test – with E-Pole and race simulations.
