Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy debuts in Frankfurt

Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy debuts in Frankfurt

Jaguar will be launching a one-make Formula E support race series called the I-PACE eTrophy for the 2018-2019 season.

Manufacturers have flocked to Formula E in recent months, keen to develop and promote their battery-electric powertrain prowess, but Jaguar's underlining its status as an early-adopter (it first entered Formula E in 2016) with the intriguing eTrophy.

The 30-minute races are expected to feature as many as 20 cars.

Jaguar is offering qualified racers a unique "arrive and drive" package with mechanics, garages, hospitality, travel and spares all covered in the cost. The support package includes everything from help with vehicle prep, logistics support, and consumable parts to hospitality and even driving suits.

This means races will take place on street circuits around the world, including Hong Kong, Paris, Sao Paolo and NY.

Full specifications and performance figures for the I-Pace eTrophy are yet to be revealed, and will be announced closer to the start of Formula E's fifth season next year.

Gerd Mäuser, chairman of Jaguar Racing, said: "Jaguar returned to racing in 2016 with the mission "Race to Innovate".

"As a British team, we're very proud to launch the world's first production battery electric vehicle championship".

In concept form, the electric Jaguar I-Pace makes 395 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, enough to hit 60 miles per hour in about 4 seconds.

"We've always said we want to prove our electrification technologies on the track -this is the proof".

"I hope Jaguar will allow me to bring my race suit and helmet... and maybe get behind the wheel myself!" 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.

"I'm looking forward to seeing a full grid of I-Pace race cars in late 2018, soon after the first I-Pace road vehicle hits the streets in Europe". Coincidentally, the 2018-19 Formula E season will also be the first in which the single-seater racers will be required to complete an entire race with one vehicle, rather than the range-enforced auto swaps we've seen up until now.
