Competitors in the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup will have six days of pre-season testing ahead of the 2020 campaign.

Two separate test events will be held at Jerez in March and April, each for three days, ahead of the first round of the season at the Spanish track.

Teams will first head to Jerez on March 10-12 for three days of running before returning on April 8-10.

The final day of testing, April 10, will feature a full-length race simulation, similar to what was held prior to the inaugural season at Valencia in June last year.

MotoE testing won’t take place on test days for any of the other classes – MotoGP, Moto2 or Moto3 – but on standalone days.

The first test takes place days after the three other classes’ first race of the season in Qatar on March 8, with the second test shortly after the Grand Prix classes’ race at Circuit of The Americas on April 5.

MotoE revealed an updated race schedule in December with Valencia replacing Le Mans, setting races at Jerez, Assen, Red Bull Ring, Misano and Valencia.

The final two weekends will be double-header events, amounting to a total of seven races throughout the electric class’ second season.

The full-season entry list also came out in December, with 18 riders again set to contest every race.

2020 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup Schedule:

March 10-12 – Jerez (test)
April 8-10 – Jerez (test)

May 1-3 – Jerez
June 26-28 – Assen
Aug. 14-16 – Red Bull Ring
Sept. 11-13 – Misano (double-header)
Nov. 13-15 – Valencia (double-header)
