The motorbikes of the future alongside those of the MotoGP™, the electric speed champions on the same circuit as the prize winners of the premier category: Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo. This was the show at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on the Emilia Romagna Riviera when the weekend of 13-15 September featured the third stage of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, alongside the MotoGP World Championship.
Two races, each featuring seven laps, 12 teams, 18 riders, all hurtling at top speed along the 4.2 km of the circuit famed for its tricky corners: la Quercia (The Oak), il Tramonto (The Sunset) and il Carro (The Wagon). Music and entertainment on a two-wheeler speed theme added to the atmosphere of the competition, for which Enel X is Official Smart Charging Partner, as did the huge audience: 158,000+ spectators in the stands, plus millions of viewers watching the live TV broadcast.
The Italian debut of MotoE, the first all-electric motorcycle racing world championship, lived up to expectations right from the start, featuring multiple overtakes, spectacular events and thrilling duels. Matteo Ferrari, the Italian driver from the Gresini stable, won both races and, with this double victory, jumped to the top of the standings ahead of the Spanish driver Hector Garzo from the Tech 3 team.
