Eric Granado (Avintia Esponsorama Racing) topped the standings on Day 1 of the official MotoE™ Jerez Test with a 1:48.984, heading Niki Tuuli (Ajo Motorsport MotoE) by 0.433, with Hector Garzo (Tech 3 E-racing) third at the end of action. Tricky conditions met the riders then, but there were no such worries on Wednesday in Jerez and, as well as a solid day's testing, there was also chance to see the teams donning their 2019 liveries for the first time out on track. Just over half a second back from Granado in fourth place on Day 1 was Mike Di Meglio (EG 0,0 Marc VDS), with Alex De Angelis (Alma Pramac Racing) completing a top five covered by 0.591. His teammate Josh Hook was seventh, the Australian sitting just ahead of veteran former Grand Prix rider Randy De Puniet (LCR E-Team) and fellow premier class podium finisher Bradley Smith (One Energy Racing) in seventh and eighth respectively. The riders will be back out for another two days of testing on Thursday and Friday, stay tuned!
