Torres-Ferrari-Granado: the MotoE™ front row at Assen!

A tyre pressure penalty for Casadei sees him lose pole, with the Italian now set to start P10

As qualifying for Round 4 of the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup concluded at the Motul TT Assen, it was Matia Casadei (HP Pons Los40) who flew through Q1 one to snatch pole after setting a stunning 01’40.5740 at the iconic Cathedral of Speed. But it wasn’t to be for the Italian as a tyre pressure penalty sees the lap on which they didn’t comply – his best effort in Q2 – scrubbed off. So instead, it’s points leader Jordi Torres (Openbank Aspar Team) who will head the grid ahead of closest challenger in the standings, Matteo Ferrari (Felo Gresini MotoE™), and previous Assen winner Eric Granado (LCR E-Team).

Row 2 will now be impressive rookie Randy Krummenacher (Dynavolt Intact GP MotoE™) ahead of Mugello Race 1 winner Andrea Mantovani (RNF MotoE™ Team) and Alessandro Zaccone (Tech3 E-Racing).

It didn’t go to plan for most recent winner Hector Garzo (Dynavolt Intact GP MotoE™) as the Spaniard failed to find his way into Q2 and will start both races from 14th on the grid. Casadei will start tenth. 

Racing action is next up for MotoE™ with Race 1 coming up on Saturday at 12:15 and Race 2 at 16:10 local time (GMT +2). Make sure you don’t miss any of the action on motogp.com!
