It seems clear to me that the future is electric racing. It is exhilarating to be at the forefront of a new way of racing, and we are making history by starting that journey with the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series.

Mark Turner
Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Series Manager

Following Jaguar’s entry into ABB FIA Formula E as the first premium manufacturer, conversations with Formula E around converting our all-electric road car, the I-PACE, into the world’s first battery electric racecar, came around quite quickly. We identified there was a gap during race weekends suitable for a support series and most importantly, we had the all-electric I-PACE road car on the market. Within 18 months we went from concept to reality, delivering what is a truly global championship with the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.

James Barclay
Jaguar Racing Team Director

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– the word’s first all-electric touring car series.

Notes to Editors




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.
