  DEBUT TEST OF 2020 AT JEREZ: FERRARI ALREADY ON TOP FORM  

Team Trentino Gresini MotoE had a positive test at Jerez de la Frontera, in which especially Matteo Ferrari was able to set the pace in multiple occasions. The reigning MotoE World Cup Champion was in the top positions already from the very first sessions and managed to lead the field as the official test drew to a close courtesy of a 1’47.494 lap-time.

Ferrari, who completed around 50 laps across the three days, worked with the team on the bike set-up to continue the develop and do some fine-tuning ahead of the season opener, which is scheduled to take place at this very track in the early days of May.

Alessandro Zaccone had his very first shakedown test with the Trentino-liveried Energica prototype number #61. The young Italian rider had a lot to learn, and mainly focused on adapting his riding style to a bike that is surely quite different to what he was used to. His personal best time of 1’48.744secs placed him in 13thpositin.

The next event on the calendar for MotoE is the second and last official test, which is scheduled to take place in less than a month’s time (8-10 April), obviously depending on the well-known worldwide situation.

MATTEO FERRARI #11

“It was a good test. We made a big step forward set-up wise and there’s still some changes to make to understand if the direction we’re taking is the right one – and there’s no better situation to do so than during testing. It wasn’t easy, especially as we did not have the telemetry engineer with us since day two. We made an effort to fill his absence: from my side to make myself clear and from the team to make the changes we needed. I set some good lap-times which came quite naturally, so this surely is a good sign.” 

ALESSANDRO ZACCONE #61

“It was my first outing with MotoE and it was helpful to understand the bike a bit. You feel the weight quite a lot and the bike has to be ridden in a smoother way than a Moto2 one. You need to let it ride quite a lot on corner entry – which is opposite to Moto2 – and braking is a lot less. In general, everything is very different to what I’m used to. Having said that, we improved session after session, aside from a battery issue which didn’t allow us to make the most of FP3 yesterday. We’re working on it; there’s great enthusiasm and I must say that I’m happy at the end of these three days.”
