The FIM was informed this morning that a serious fire broke out in the E-Paddock at the Circuito de Jerez Angel Nieto in the early hours of today causing considerable material damage and losses but fortunately no injuries.
Dorna and Enel have assured the FIM that they will work hard to overcome this major setback and ensure that the World Cup is up and running as soon as possible in spite of all the additional work that will now be required.
The FIM President expressed his great regret at the destruction of the motorcycles and equipment associated with the FIM ENEL MotoE™ World Cup, which is due to start in Jerez in May.
“It is a terrible blow but I am sure that all those working for this exciting new venture will find the strength and motivation to overcome this unfortunate occurrence and make the Championship a success. We look forward to putting this behind us and are confident in the future.”
