2019 ELEC­TRIC MO­TOGP SE­RIES SHAPES UP

Performance Bikes (UK) - - MONTH IN BIKES -

Mo­toGP’s zero-emis­sion sup­port se­ries will be a five-round cham­pi­onship for its first sea­son in 2019. Cur­rent Mo­toGP satel­lite teams Tech 3, LCR, Pra­mac, Av­in­tia and Ni­eto will field a pair of bikes each, and six fur­ther sin­gle-bike teams are also set to be an­nounced. The En­er­gica Ego Corsa is the con­trol bike for the se­ries: they’ll run for seven to 10 laps de­pend­ing on cir­cuit length for the first sea­son. Bradley Smith could po­ten­tially fea­ture: with his full-time Mo­toGP ca­reer end­ing and him tak­ing up a test rider role for Aprilia, he could be free on race week­ends to com­pete in the in­au­gu­ral leccy cham­pi­onship.
