Jaguar I-Pace to drive new Formula E support series

Maybe that will be enough to drum up some attention for the I-Pace eTrophy and electric racing in general. Interested drivers will be able to purchase an Arrive and Drive package, which includes the auto, entry into all 10 races, tires, vehicle storage and transport, technical support, and the necessary equipment.

No date for the first eTrophy series race was announced by Formula E. The 2018-19 - season five - Formula E schedule has not been released.

Technical details for the racecars, which will be built at Jaguar's Special Vehicle Operations facility in Coventry, will be released next year, when the i-Pace production auto is set to go into production.

Jaguar returned to racing in 2016, when they entered competition in the second season of Formula E. Now they've gone one step further and announced a support series for the Formula E championship - the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY - that will be held starting in Season 5.

The series will support every round of Formula E, racing on the streets of major cities including New York, Paris, Rome, Sao Paulo and Hong Kong.

Each race will last about 30 minutes, with up to 20 I-Pace race cars competing in this 10-race series.

Bill Haslam said President Donald Trump spoke to the governor for about 10 minutes Sunday morning to offer assistance. In Miami, one of two dozen construction cranes looming over the skyline collapsed atop a high-rise in Irma's winds.

The announcement follows news that the British government is to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars from 2040 and reinforces Jaguar Land Rover's commitment to electrification - from 2020 all new model lines will be electrified, with either hybrid or battery technology.

"Ultimately this innovative series will enhance the technology in our future electric vehicles and benefit our customers". But we have to admit that I-Pace race auto looks pretty dang cool.

Demand is anticipated to be high and places will be awarded on a first come, first served basis from entrants and drivers holding the relevant global race licence.

Jaguar is going to build a special racing version of the all-electric Jaguar I-Pace, which will compete in a brand new electric auto race series.

The first person to show interest in that offer was Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag, who said that he would relish the chance to take part in the new series.
