The FIM Enel MotoE World Cup will get underway in July, with a new schedule having been released following the delay to the start of the all-electric MotoGP support series.

The championship will still be made up of six races but now across four weekends, with a pair of double-headers to end the season.

It will begin at Sachsenring in Germany on July 5-7 before rounds at the Red Bull Ring, Misano and Valencia.

It was initially set to debut at Jerez on May 5 but was delayed following a paddock fire during pre-season testing at the track in southern Spain earlier this month.

The incident destroyed most of the equipment for the series, including the bikes.

Sachsenring, Red Bull Ring and Misano were all on the previous calendar, while Valencia has been added as the new finale, and the Jerez and Le Mans rounds have been scrapped.

Another pre-season test will now take place in June at a currently undecided circuit, in order to give teams additional preparation ahead of the first round.

2019 MotoE World Cup Schedule:

July 5-7 – Sachsenring
Aug. 9-11 – Red Bull Ring
Sept. 13-15 – Misano (two races)
Nov. 15-17 – Valencia (two races)
