Jaguar And FIA Formula E To Launch Support Series In Season Five

Jaguar has unveiled plans for a fully-electric support series to run alongside select races in the FIA Formula E Championship from season five—titled the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.
 
The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY would be the first production battery electric vehicle racing series, featuring cars based on Jaguar’s first battery electric vehicle—the Jaguar I-PACE performance SUV—which hits the road later next year.
 
Modified Jaguar I-PACE cars will have the opportunity to compete on the same weekend at select Formula E events, using the same circuit layout as the stars of the electric street racing series—with the planned schedule consisting of a practice and qualifying session, followed by a 30-minute race.
 
The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY will offer a complete “Arrive and Drive” package for 20 drivers at each event, including professional technical support, spare parts and equipment. Technical specifications, schedule and participation costs will be released in 2018, with venues and calendar subject to FIA approval.
