JAGUAR RACING READY FOR SECOND ELECTRIFYING SEASON IN FIA FORMULA E

Panasonic Jaguar Racing are heading to Hong Kong for the start of their second season in the FIA Formula E Championship. The season opener takes place on 2 – 3 December in Asia’s first ever double-header race weekend and will be the first-time drivers Nelson Piquet Jr. and Mitch Evans line up on the grid together in the new British team.

At the Hong Kong E-Prix drivers will complete 45 laps of the 1.86km street race circuit in the new Jaguar I-TYPE 2 on city’s iconic Harbour front. With ten turns and two hairpin bends, Panasonic Jaguar Racing are ready to electrify the city’s streets.

This season, Panasonic Jaguar Racing have developed a new powertrain, with more than 200 new parts in the Jaguar I-TYPE 2 to produce a more efficient package using high strength lightweight materials. Taking in all the learnings and technical advancements from season three, the team believe these will have a positive impact on their performance.  For this season, the race power level increases to 180kwh making the cars even faster.

Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s mission – Race to Innovate – continues into season four with the aim of inspiring and engaging a new generation of fans.

As the first premium manufacturer to enter Formula E, Jaguar also recently launched a world-first electric vehicle race series – the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY – which showcases the link between Jaguar’s involvement in Formula E, the development of Jaguar’s road cars and the future of electrification.

From season five, 20 Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY racecars will line up on the grid in ten of the world’s most iconic cities, in the world’s first all-electric support race series. The championship will take place on the same day as the FIA Formula E Championship, enhancing the electric race schedule.
