In an electronic meeting held on 17th September 2021, the MotoE™ Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna, Chairman), Paul Duparc (FIM), and Herve Poncharal (IRTA), made the following decisions:
Sporting Regulations – 2022 Season
New format of MotoE™ events
Starting from 2022, standard MotoE™ events will feature two Free Practice sessions and a Qualifying on Friday, and two races: one on Saturday and the other on Sunday. Each race will normally be after the Grand Prix classes.
E-pole will be replaced by more traditional Qualifying sessions:
Qualifying session format: Q1 (10 minutes) – 10 min break – Q2 (10 minutes)
Qualifying 1 will comprise the slowest ten riders from the combined results of FP1 and FP2. The duration of Qualifying 1 will be ten minutes with no limitation on the number of laps.
The two fastest riders in Qualifying 1 will be permitted to recharge their machine in pit lane and also receive an additional rear tyre.
Qualifying 2 will comprise the fastest eight riders from the combined results of FP1 and FP2 plus the fastest two riders from Qualifying 1. The duration of Qualifying 2 will be ten minutes with no limitation on the number of laps.
A regularly updated version of the FIM Regulations which contains the detailed text of the regulation changes will soon be available.
