Jaguar TCS Racing have announced Nick Cassidy will join the team’s driver line-up for the 2024 season of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, the second year of the Gen3 era of Formula E. 

  • Jaguar TCS Racing have today announced its full driver line-up for the 2024 season of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship
  • New Zealander, Nick Cassidy, will join the team from the 2024 season, following his most successful Formula E season to date
  • Nick Cassidy joins Mitch Evans in the British team, who has been confirmed to remain with Jaguar TCS Racing for season 10 and beyond
  • The 2024 season begins on 13 January, for the first of 17 rounds, in Mexico City

The Formula E race winner and 2023 title challenger will join fellow New Zealander Mitch Evans, who has been with the team since they joined the all-electric World Championship in 2016. The two Kiwis will be one of the strongest driver line-ups on the grid, with 15 wins, 37 podiums, 11 pole positions and 1076 championship points between them. 

Born in Auckland, New Zealand, Nick started racing at a young age, competing against now new teammate Mitch throughout their childhood in categories including karting and Formula Toyota. Moving into single-seaters, Cassidy had a winning debut in the Formula First New Zealand series in 2008, before becoming one of the most successful drivers in the history of the Toyota Racing Series. Cassidy went on to race in the FIA Formula 3 European and Renault 2.0 championships. Following his foundation years racing in New Zealand and Europe, Nick had a very successful period of his career in Japan where he won the ultra-competitive Japanese Formula 3 Championship in 2015, the Super GT Championship in 2019 and the pinnacle Super Formula title in 2019 all driving for Toyota. Following this chapter of his career he joined the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in 2020 driving for Envision Racing after an impressive Marrakesh rookie test with the team. 

In 2022, Nick had his first Formula E victory at the New York E-Prix, and a podium in London, finishing eleventh in the Drivers' Championship. He joins Jaguar TCS Racing off the back of his most successful season to date, having finished the 2023 season runner-up in the Drivers’ World Championship, bringing the title fight to the final weekend of the season. Nick was instrumental in winning the Teams’ World Championship with Envision Racing, driving a Jaguar I-TYPE 6.  

The 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will begin on 13 January 2024 in Mexico City, for the first of 17 rounds of exciting wheel-to-wheel racing on street circuits in the heart of the world’s cities. 


We are thrilled to announce that Nick Cassidy has joined Jaguar TCS Racing. Nick’s track record speaks for itself and he is someone we have always had our eye on back to his time racing in Japan. Since joining Formula E he has gone from strength to strength and his 2023 season was very impressive. Nick was highly motivated to join the team and we are proud to welcome him into the Jaguar family. We head into the new season with one of the strongest driver line-ups on the grid and, paired with the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 and our talented team, we will be looking to once again challenge for both the Drivers and Teams World Championship titles.

James Barclay
Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal

I’m very excited to be joining the Jaguar TCS Racing team for the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and looking forward to racing for a team like Jaguar that has such a successful motorsport history. This season has been my most successful to date, so I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 and fight for points, podiums and wins. Looking forward to having Mitch as a teammate, we have known each other since we were kids and have raced against each other for years, so I’m proud that we will be racing together and hope to continue to put New Zealand on the map in motorsport.

Nick Cassidy
Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #37

Notes to Editors


Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first luxury manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series.   

In the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, Jaguar TCS Racing finished runners-up with 292 points – the team’s biggest points haul in Formula E. Mitch Evans finished third in the Drivers’ World Championship with 197 points, his biggest points haul in Formula E.   

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’s goal is to ‘Reimagine Racing’ and together the team will test, develop, learn and collaborate, sharing insights across JLR 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.  

The 2023 season saw the teams race with the Gen3 car, the world’s first net zero race car.  

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Jaguar TCS Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter, and rear suspension. Jaguar, via its long-term Formula E technical partner Williams Advanced Engineering, will supply Envision Racing with its powertrain for the Gen3 era.  

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 efficient and lightweight electric vehicle powertrains which will improve the performance and range of future JLR electric vehicles.  

Teams have two race cars, 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 2023 championship took place on temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities including Mexico City, Diriyah and Rome, with new locations including Hyderabad, Cape Town, and São Paulo. The season finale played out across a double-header race weekend in London.  

Formula E remains a key priority for JLR and the company’s Reimagine strategy. As the premier 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 clients.  

Through our Race to Inspire mission, Jaguar TCS Racing are committed to inspiring the future generation by using the race programme to create a positive impact on our planet and the communities in which we race. From competing in the world’s first net carbon race car to supporting and training the next generation of engineers and motorsport professionals.
