The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY – support series to the ABB FIA Formula E Championship – has today announced the 10 rounds it will compete at during its debut season.
Sparking into life at the season-opener in Ad Diriyah on December 15, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY will 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.
Modified Jaguar I-PACE cars will have the opportunity to compete – with the planned schedule consisting of a practice and qualifying session, followed by a 30-minute race ahead of the E-Prix.
Marion Barnaby, Championship Manager of Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY, said: “Seeing Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY race cars line-up on the grid in December will be a proud and historic moment for Jaguar, and spectators can expect plenty of action from the races. As we travel to some of the world’s most exciting cities, we’ll be bringing a new kind of electric street racing to the public and inspiring the next generation of electric vehicle owners.”
