Quotes include:

Mitch Evans, #20:

“I’m missing the Jaguar I-TYPE 4 so much. Being mid-way through the season and with our current on-track form, you want to keep the momentum going but regardless of the track action, the whole experience of travelling with the ABB FIA Formula E Championship is so special to be a part of and the lockdown period has highlighted that even more. To travel to different cities and experience different cultures with your team, up against other world-class drivers, it really is something special. We’re not alone in missing our sport though – other fields are of course doing the same to stay safe – but I can’t wait to get back racing when it is right to do so.

Simon Evans, Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY driver:

“Jaguar recognised early on that the I-PACE was a very good product. Electrification is such new technology, for every manufacturer, so for Jaguar to make a big statement by announcing its first road car and then launching a racing series that travels around the world is just brilliant. What better way to showcase and prove how good the car is than by turning it into the world’s first all-electric production-based series – the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.  All of this shows the path that Jaguar are on, where they are going and the fact that they are leading the charge.”

The new series, hosted by Amanda Stretton and Vernon Kay, will be a regular, insightful series fans can look forward to with new guests in each episode across Formula E and the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY– the word’s first all-electric touring car series.

ABOUT PANASONIC JAGUAR RACING

Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first premium manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series. In 2019 the team won the Rome E-Prix – Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991.

Formula E is a real world test bed for Jaguar to make fearless progress in the future of electrification.

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Panasonic Jaguar Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter and rear suspension. To control costs the carbon fibre chassis and battery are common components and the same for all twelve teams. This allows the focus to be on developing electric vehicle powertrains which are efficient and lightweight which will improve the performance and range of future Jaguar Land Rover electric vehicles.

This is the second year teams will be racing with the futuristic Generation 2 racecars. Teams have two racecars, one per driver, which will be used for the full race distance.

Beyond its all-electric concept, Formula E is unique in the world of motorsport for its choice of venues. The championship takes place on temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities including Diriyah, Marrakesh, Berlin, New York and ending in a double-header race weekend in London.

ABOUT JAGUAR I-PACE eTROPHY

After becoming the first premium manufacturer to enter the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in 2016, Jaguar created the world’s first all-electric touring car race series for a production car – the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.

Exclusively featuring Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY racecars, the all-electric series gives drivers of the future and established racers a chance to showcase their talent, competing on the world stage in zero-emissions motorsport. After making history in the inaugural season, the groundbreaking series will see up to 20 identical Jaguar I-PACE battery electric racecars on the grid in 10 races, across eight global cities.

New for season two is the introduction of ATTACK MODE providing an extra 20% in torque and power for a specified duration (defined at race) providing increased race strategy and additional overtaking opportunities.

The series supports the launch of the Jaguar I-PACE, Jaguar’s first battery electric vehicle, and reinforces Jaguar Land Rover’s future electrification strategy, commitment to electric street racing and the team’s mission of ‘Fearless Progress’.

Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY partners include official tyre supplier Michelin, official charging partner ABB, technical partner Sabelt, official clothing supplier One All Sports, official racewear supplier Alpine Stars and official logistics partner DHL.
