  • Jamie Chadwick and Sacha Fenestraz tested the Jaguar I-TYPE 4 in Marrakesh, Morocco
  • It is the first time the drivers have tested the Jaguar I-TYPE 4
  • Rookie testing took place on Sunday 1 March, following the Marrakesh E-Prix

It’s been a really productive day of testing; a lot has been learnt. I’ve been learning as much as I can, taking as much in as possible and providing Jaguar with all the relevant data they needed. As a driver I’m always going to want to spend more time and complete more laps in the Jaguar I-TYPE 4 but today had undoubtedly been very positive for everyone and I’m looking forward to what might come next.

Panasonic Jaguar Racing Rookie Test Driver

This was my first time in a Formula E car and first time in Marrakesh – it has been very interesting and challenging at the same time. It is completely different to anything I have done before and I am very grateful to Panasonic Jaguar Racing for giving me this opportunity. I’ve learnt an enormous amount and the team have been able to gather useful data - I hope to return to the Formula E paddock soon.

Notes to Editors


Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first premium manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series. In 2019 the team won the Rome E-Prix – Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991.

Formula E is a real world test bed for Jaguar to make fearless progress in the future of electrification.

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Panasonic Jaguar Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter and rear suspension. To control costs the carbon fibre chassis and battery are common components and the same for all twelve teams. This allows the focus to be on developing electric vehicle powertrains which are efficient and lightweight which will improve the performance and range of future Jaguar Land Rover electric vehicles.

This is the second year teams will be racing with the futuristic Generation 2 racecars. Teams have two racecars, one per driver, which will be used for the full race distance.

Beyond its all-electric concept, Formula E is unique in the world of motorsport for its choice of venues. The championship takes place on temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities including Diriyah, Marrakesh, Rome, Paris, New York and ending in a double-header race weekend in London.
