The FIM Enel MotoE World Cup will again have six European races in 2020, for its second season of competition as the all-electric support series to MotoGP.

The series, which got underway earlier this year and has so far completed four races, will return for a largely similar schedule on five MotoGP weekends in 2020.

It will get underway at Jerez on May 3 before heading to Le Mans two weeks later. Assen is the new track in the schedule, replacing Sachsenring on June 28 ahead of the Red Bull Ring round on Aug. 16.

The season will close with a double-header event at Misano on Sept. 12-13.

Sachsenring, Red Bull Ring, Misano and Valencia make up this year’s schedule, with double-headers at both of the final two events.

The schedule was heavily modified and series start delayed after a paddock fire during pre-season testing at Jerez destroyed bikes and equipment.

Next year’s calendar is actually a lot closer to the originally planned 2019 schedule that was set before the Jerez fire delayed proceedings.

The inaugural season of MotoE will conclude on Nov. 15-17 at Valencia. Matteo Ferrari currently leads the standings with 72 points after taking both wins at Misano earlier this month.

2020 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup Schedule:

May 3 – Jerez
May 17 – Le Mans
June 28 – Assen
Aug. 16 – Red Bull Ring
Sept. 12-13 – Misano (double-header)

    Sad to see how far behind they are. Season 2 of this will still be the same as season 1 of FE back in 2014.
