2 February 2020

In light of the continued spread of coronavirus and the World Health Organisation (WHO) declaring the coronavirus outbreak an international emergency, the decision has been made to not race in Sanya on the scheduled date of March 21, 2020.

We support the decision of ABB FIA Formula, and therefore the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY will also not be racing in Sanya on the scheduled race date.

The health and safety of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY drivers and teams and Jaguar Racing staff is of paramount importance, and we make this decision following the guidance of WHO and ABB FIA Formula E.

We are working closely with ABB FIA Formula E to continue monitoring the situation as it develops. All parties will take the appropriate amount of time to study the viability of potential alternative dates.

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 serieswill 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.
