Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY offers “Arrive and drive” package for new electric race series

As an accompaniment to the FIA Formula E race weekend, Jaguar has created the world’s first production electric vehicle race series.

The I-PACE eTROPHY will take place on the same weekends and at the same street circuits as the single seater race commencing late 2018.

Race cars will be prepared by Jaguar’s SVO division

Up to 20 race prepared electric I-PACE cars will be on the grid with the race open to anyone with an International racing licence.

Jaguar‘s own Special Vehicle Operations department (SVO) will build the race cars based on the forthcoming I-PACE road going SUV that will hit the streets in late 2018.

Jaguar Racing is offering successful entrants a complete ‘Arrive and Drive’ package with everything you need to compete, including race entry and race wear, logistics to the races with garaging plus spare parts, tyres and equipment available. All of this includes professional technical support for Jaguar.

Upto 20 race cars will take to the Formula E city tracks

Alejandro Agag, Founder and CEO of Formula E, said:

“Jaguar has been a welcome addition to Formula E and a fantastic advocate for electric street racing. I’m delighted that in addition to the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team competing on the Formula E grid, we will be adding to our race day schedule with a competitive new support series for season five.

The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY will bring more entertainment for fans in-between sessions and will be a further testament to the advances in battery technology and exciting electric performance. I hope Jaguar will allow me to bring my race suit and helmet… and maybe get behind the wheel myself!”

Technical specifications, race calendar and costs for the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY will be released next year.
