Jaguar TCS Racing will return to electrify the streets of Brooklyn for the eleventh and twelfth rounds of the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship this weekend.

  • Jaguar TCS Racing head to the streets of Brooklyn with their sights set on another successful double-header weekend
  • With the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship entering the final phase of the season in three iconic city locations, the British racing team aim to deliver a strong haul of points starting in New York
  • After his fifth podium of the season in Marrakesh, Mitch Evans sits fourth in the drivers’ standings
  • The challenging Red Hook circuit has been a happy hunting ground for Sam Bird who won in New York last year adding to his success in the Big Apple
  • Lights go green in New York at 13:00 EDT on 16 and 17 July 2022

Jaguar TCS Racing’s driver line-up have seen success in New York previously with Mitch Evans scoring a podium finish in 2019 and Sam Bird storming to victory from pole position last year in Brooklyn, his third victory in New York.

The New York City E-Prix hosts one of the shorter tracks at just 2.3-kilometres long but with sharp, tight corners, walls either side and varying tarmac and camber, it provides an exciting challenge for the team.

Jaguar TCS Racing are fourth in the teams’ standings with 156 points while in the drivers’ standings, Mitch Evans is fourth just fifteen points behind the leader and Sam Bird is twelfth.

The New York City E-Prix is a real Formula E street circuit in one of the most iconic cities in the world. In the past it has seen thrilling racing and an excellent spectacle for the fans. As a team we enjoy racing stateside and we have seen success in the past with a brilliant comeback win from Sam last year and a podium finish for Mitch in 2019. The streets of Brooklyn provide a unique challenge for all teams but we’re looking forward to returning to the track and we are hard at work to try and deliver another strong points haul.

James Barclay
Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal

New York is one of my favourite tracks on the race calendar. We’ve achieved some great results here and seen some incredible racing action. Last year a very late brush with the wall compromised what was looking to be a really strong result. This year I’m coming back even more focused and determined to push for a podium result again. The championship fight is on, so we need to maximise every opportunity.

Mitch Evans
Jaguar TCS Racing driver #9

I’m really excited to head back to New York; it’s a circuit I’ve performed really well at in the past with three wins in total including last year. It’s always a demanding weekend in New York but I’m looking forward to the challenge and hopefully another strong result for the team.

Sam Bird
Jaguar TCS Racing driver #10

The New York City E-Prix takes place on a prime example of a street track. It has a plethora of tight and twisty sections where the walls are ready to catch you out if you make any small error. On top of that, being that it's not a permanent venue, there is significant track evolution throughout the race weekend. You need to push pretty much right from the off if you want to be really in the groove by the time of qualifying where the brave are rewarded. The races normally give plenty of excitement too with lots of overtaking and batteries nearing their temperature limit towards the end.

Jaguar TCS Racing Technical Manager

Rounds eleven and twelve of the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will take place on Saturday 16 July and Sunday 17 July at 13:00 EDT.

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 season seven Jaguar TCS Racing finished runners-up in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship teams’ standings - the most successful so far in Jaguar TCS Racing’s Formula E history.

Formula E is a real-world test bed for Jaguar with its journey to becoming an all-electric luxury brand from 2025. Jaguar TCS Racing will deliver new sustainable technologies and set new benchmarks in quality in support of Jaguar Land Rover’s Reimagine strategy.

Jaguar TCS Racing goal is to ‘Reimagine Racing’ and together the team will test, develop, learn and collaborate, sharing insights across Jaguar Land Rover which will benefit future road car development. Specifically, learnings and technology transfer from Formula E will help ‘Reimagine” the Jaguar brand coinciding with the company’s commitment to the Gen3 era of Formula E.

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Jaguar TCS 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 eleven 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.

The 2021/22 Formula E season is the second season of World Championship status as granted by the FIA – the sport’s governing body. It will be the fourth and final year for the teams to be racing with the futuristic Gen2 race cars.

Teams have two race cars, one per driver, which will be used for the full race distance of 45 minutes plus 1 lap.

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, Mexico City, Rome, Monaco, New York, London and ending in a double-header race weekend in Seoul.  

New Zealander, Mitch Evans finished season seven fourth in the drivers' championship and Jaguar TCS Racing finished second in the teams' standings - the most successful so far in Jaguar TCS Racing’s Formula E history - with eight podiums, two wins, one pole position and 177 points scored. After his first season with the team, Briton, Sam Bird finished sixth in the championship with two wins, three podiums and a pole position


Race to Innovate

Formula E remains a key priority for Jaguar Land Rover and the company’s Reimagine strategy. As the only all-electric world championship, Formula E allows us to test and develop new electric vehicle technologies in a high-performance environment. It continues to be the test-bed for our Race to Innovate mission that will see Race to Road and Road to Race learnings that will help shape our electric future – a future that Jaguar is passionate about, and dedicated to for the benefit of our society, the changing landscape of mobility, sustainability and our customers.
