    Maybe. We will see. But fire is not something exclusive to electric vehicles. Internal combustion engines have fire issues as well. So it is not really something amazing, that a bunch of racebikes burned. This is not the first time that has happened. It is an expensive set back as far as having the racebikes to race in the series. But assuming they can recover from this I think this will only raise awareness of the series.
    Don't get me wrong, I doubt I will watch. But I am not the target audience of the series. I am too old. And I would rather go to an NHRA Top Fuel event than any electric racing series event.

    I'm afraid to even use a lithium ion battery to start my internal combustion engined bikes. I don't even trust the lithium ion battery in my laptop to ever leave it plugged in when I leave the house. It seems that every time a Tesla crashes at more than 35 miles per hour, the batteries go into thermal runaway.

    Ever see an electric bike catch fire at the track? I have, and you can't put the damn fire out with conventional extringuishers.

    new MotoE calendar announced

    http://www.motogp.com/en/news/2019/0...nounced/287184

    The calendar will retain six races and MotoE™ will be back in business at a test in June at a circuit to be confirmed. The first race of the season will now take place at the HJC Helmets Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland in July, with the next two events set for the Red Bull Ring and Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli respectively, the latter of which will remain a double header. It won’t be the season finale, however, as the last round of the Cup will now take place at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, where there will be another two races to end the season in spectacular style.As previously stated, Jerez will not host MotoE™ as part of the Gran Premio Red Bull de España and the revised calendar confirms that MotoE™ will not race at Le Mans.


    The exact causes of the fire that destroyed the majority of the equipment for the Cup remain under investigation. The results, as well as any further updates, will be announced in due course.


    For now, save the date for the season opener at the German Grand Prix on the 7th of July.


    - Race 1 - July 5th -7th - Sachsenring, Germany


    - Race 2 - August 9th -11th - Red Bull Ring, Austria


    - Races 3 & 4 - September 13th -15th - Misano, Italy


    - Races 5 & 6 - November 15th -17th - Valencia, Spain
