#CatalanGP 24 May, 2024

The FIM Enel MotoE™ World Championship was also part of the Catalan party this weekend at the circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, with Tech3 E-Racing’s line-up ready to dispute their third round of the season after an incredible weekend in Le Mans, during which we saw Nicholas Spinelli win both races. Their campaign in Montmelo started pretty well too, with Alessandro Zaccone qualifying on the first row, in third, and Nicholas Spinelli just behind, in fourth.

It is a big FI-NAL-LY for Italian Alessandro Zaccone who took his first front-row start on Friday since he joined the Tech3 E-Racing squad in 2023. A sixth place in the combined practices this morning gave him the opportunity to head directly to the final qualifying stage in the afternoon. With a lap in 1’48.247, Zaccone qualified in third on the grid, an advantage which gives him a strong opportunity to fight for big points in tomorrow’s races.

Having won three of the first four races of the season, it is with no doubt that the expectations are high for the second in the championship, Nicholas Spinelli. The Italian assumed his status decently, fresh and early this morning, as he took the lead in the combined practices with a 1’48.190, the new all-time lap record. The pace was there to try fighting for the pole position, but a slightly too long wait in the pitlane during qualifying 2 reduced the opportunities for Spinelli to do much more than a fourth position on the grid. The #29 will try to maintain the pressure on the championship leader in tomorrow’s races, with big points needed to remain in the title fight.

Grid Position: 3

Time: 1'48.247

Laps: 4

"This front-row start feels really good for us, because last season it was difficult for me to re-adapt to the tyres in the electric class coming from Moto2, but this season, we have been fast since the beginning. We have been unlucky on a few occasions already, but we have always had the pace to fight for the front, so being able to start from P3 is a great reward, and a relief. In MotoE, starting from the front is key because there are not many laps, and in addition, it reduces the risks of contact with other riders, which I have had a lot already! The races won’t be easy tomorrow because the tyres are dropping fast, in addition to the track having very low grip, but we will try to do our best!"

Grid Position: 4

Time: 1'48.413

Laps: 4

"We had a good pace today, I felt strong and was quite confident ahead of qualifying. I waited a bit to do my qualifying lap on my own, but other riders waited for me, which I am a bit annoyed with. I waited too long in the pitlane to try exiting on my own, and that left me with only one lap to do my best, because there was a yellow flag in the second lap. We will start from fourth, and we have the pace and the potential to do two good races on Saturday!"
