The way that Jaguar have run the series has been truly amazing. The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY has really opened my eyes to electric racing. I was the VIP driver in Saudi last year and I’m really happy to be back in the I-PACE eTROPHY this season.

“The opportunities I’ve had from W Series and Jaguar ran racing Team Germany have given me amazing exposure and showcased, to other women, that anything is possible. We can race against all the best drivers in the world and compete against each other, whether you’re a man or a woman. The acceptance of women in motorsport is changing, it’s definitely growing, heading in the right direction and the more women we can see racing in the sport the better.

It was amazing to have the opportunity to drive the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY as the VIP Driver in Diriyah. I’ve driven electric road cars before but this was the first time I’d driven an electric racecar and I had so much fun.

“The engagement from the spectators in Saudi Arabia was brilliant, particularly their interest in women in the series. Alice and I were able to finish P1 and P2 in Free Practice which was an amazing opportunity to showcase our talent, as drivers, in Saudi Arabia. We were also able to do a talk to school children with the FIA initiative Girls on Track – the children asked so many questions and their enthusiasm was great. For me, I don’t see the difference between men and women in motorsport but to be a flag bearer for women was something quite special.

The new series, hosted by Amanda Stretton and Vernon Kay, will be a regular, insightful series fans can look forward to with new guests in each episode across Formula E and the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.

Notes to Editors

ABOUT JAGUAR I-PACE eTROPHY

After becoming the first premium manufacturer to enter the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in 2016, Jaguar created the world’s first all-electric touring car race series for a production car – the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.

Exclusively featuring Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY racecars, the all-electric series gives drivers of the future and established racers a chance to showcase their talent, competing on the world stage in zero-emissions motorsport. After making history in the inaugural season, the groundbreaking series will see up to 20 identical Jaguar I-PACE battery electric racecars on the grid in 10 races, across eight global cities.

New for season two is the introduction of ATTACK MODE providing an extra 20% in torque and power for a specified duration (defined at race) providing increased race strategy and additional overtaking opportunities.

The series supports the launch of the Jaguar I-PACE, Jaguar’s first battery electric vehicle, and reinforces Jaguar Land Rover’s future electrification strategy, commitment to electric street racing and the team’s mission of ‘Fearless Progress’.

Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY partners include official tyre supplier Michelin, official charging partner ABB, technical partner Sabelt, official clothing supplier One All Sports, official racewear supplier Alpine Stars and official logistics partner DHL.
