All MotoE riders Improved their times, but Eric Granado (One Energy Racing), was the only rider to get under 1:44s to take back 1st place in Le Mans.
MotoE returns to Le Mans, after a dramatic and action filled day in the previous Jerez encounter. This Friday at the SHARK Grand Prix de France as the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup, Erica Granado (One Energy Racing), came back from a crash in Jerez, only to take first place.
Granado was the sole rider that managed to beat the clock and get under 1:44s, setting a time of 1:43.9. The rest of the pack came in shortly behind, with only +0.3 separating the first five places.
Jordi Torres (Pons Racing 40) and Lukas Tulovic (Tech3 E-Racing) took second and third places respectively, while fourth was taken by Zaccone (Octo Pramac MotoE) + 0.179, who took first place during the Circuito de Jerez round. Times were extremely tights between the riders, with Dominique Aegerter taking fifth place, with just +0.29.
Former World Cup winner, Matteo Ferrari (Indonesian E-Racing Gresini MotoE), finished the day down in P13. He experienced some issues with his battery in both Free Practice 1 and 2, as the Italian was suggesting his motorcycle wasn’t getting enough power down the straight. The rider and the team will be hoping Saturday and Sunday bring better fortunes.
