Following on from the publication of MotoGP's revised 2020 European calendar, MotoE has announced its new schedule.

The second season of the electric-bike class will remain at seven races, all held during grand prix weekends, but they will now take place at three rather than five different circuits.

Assen, Red Bull Ring and Valencia (a double-header) have been dropped from the 2020 MotoE line-up and been replaced by a second race at Jerez, third race at Misano and a new double-header season finale at Le Mans in France.

Pre-season testing at Jerez suggested lap times should be around 1.5s faster this season due to increased torque from the Energica MotoE machines, new Michelin tyres and an improved front fork setup from Ohlins.

New bike chargers will also allow the race distance to be increased by one lap, since batteries can now be topped up on the grid, while an improved cooling system should deliver full power for longer track sessions.

MotoE will join the three grand prix classes for an official test day at Jerez on July 15.

The first race of the MotoE season will then take place at the Spanish circuit, on the same day as the MotoGP opener; July 19.

As with the grand prix calendar, 'All dates, events and the eventual attendance of spectators are subject to the evolution of the pandemic and the approval of the corresponding governments and authorities'.
