Following the successful introduction of “ATTACK MODE” in Formula E this season, eTROPHY will also benefit from this racing innovation in season two. With successful trials completed in New York in July, drivers will be able to use a number of “ATTACK MODES” during the races to unleash a power boost and provide even more overtaking opportunities.

It’s exciting to look forward to season two of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY and reveal the exciting locations for our second year. New for season two is the London double-header which is a fantastic opportunity to race the I-PACE eTROPHY twice in front of our home crowds. We are also excited to bring “ATTACK MODE” to the series. It has been a big success in Formula E and I am sure it will also inject even more excitement into eTROPHY.

After becoming the first premium manufacturer to enter the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in 2016, Jaguar created the world’s first production battery electric vehicle race series, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY, which is now entering its second season. The history-making championship is the official support race to the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, with up to 20 cars taking to the grid with a mixture of PRO and PRO-AM drivers. The eTROPHY racecar is based on the award-winning all-electric World Car of the Year and shares the same batteries, motor and invertor as the Jaguar I-PACE.

 

In its inaugural season the fight for the championship went down to the final race weekend, with Sérgio Jimenez, Jaguar Brazil Racing driver, crowned the first ever Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY champion. In the PRO-AM class, it was Saudi Racing driver, Bandar Alesayi, who took the title after leading the PRO-AM championship for the whole season. As part of his prize package Sérgio will also drive a Formula E racecar at an official test before the start of the season.

 

As the countdown to season two of Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY begins, further sporting and technical developments will be revealed in due course as well as the announcement of team and driver line-ups.
