A double-header at Valencia has replaced Le Mans on the updated schedule for the 2020 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, bringing the series up to seven races.

The Valencia rounds will act as the season finale on Nov. 14-15, taking part on the final MotoGP event of the year as it did for the end of MotoE’s inaugural campaign last month.

Le Mans was slated to host the electric series on May 17 with a single round as the second race of the season, but will no longer feature on the calendar. No reason has been given for the change.

Jerez will open the season on May 3 before a lengthy gap until a round at Assen on June 28.

This will be followed by the Red Bull Ring on Aug. 16, ahead of two double-header rounds at Misano and Valencia to complete the campaign.

Misano hosts MotoE on Sept. 12-13, two months before the Valencia finale.

The schedule is now more similar to this year’s, ending with a round at Red Bull Ring and double-headers at Misano and Valencia.

The 2019 season was started with a race at Sachsenring before the Austrian event, but that race has been replaced by Assen, while the Jerez round is a new addition altogether.

2020 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup Schedule:

May 3 – Jerez
June 28 – Assen
Aug. 16 – Red Bull Ring
Sept. 12-13 – Misano (double-header)
Nov. 14-15 – Valencia (double-header)

    The gaps are ridiculous, and the calendar is too short. Clearly there should be a race at every European round as a bare minimum. That would be 13 or 14 with a double header finish.
