Niki Tuuli will enjoy three days of official testing at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit before the start of the inaugural season of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup.
After the postponement of the series in March, the Ajo MotoE Team now resume their activity in the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup and today they start three days of official tests in Valencia. Niki Tuuli will be back on his electric motorcycle, working towards the first race of the new series on 7th July at Sachsenring, in Germany.
The first experiences of the Ajo MotoE Team were very positive, with the young rider adapting quickly to the new competition. In the Jerez test held in November 2018, Niki Tuuli achieved an excellent second place on the combined timesheets. This year, the Finnish rider was again in second position on the official day of testing held at the Jerez-Angel Nieto Circuit, in March.
The first day of the final official FIM Enel MotoE World Cup test commenced and it will continue until Wednesday, 19th June. These three days of practice will consist of two sessions per day, including an EPole simulation on Tuesday.

“I’ve been really looking forward to getting back on the bike and finally the moment has arrived. I’m happy to see everyone from the Ajo MotoE Team again. I’m very enthusiastic going into this official test; the whole crew wants to start working to prepare well for the beginning of the season in three weeks, in Germany. The objective for these three days of practice will be to do some new tests so that both the bike and I are ready for this new and exciting adventure. In the previous official tests we did a good job, so we will try our best to maintain that positive line of work.”
