Jaguar TCS Racing have today announced that Swede, Joel Eriksson and Frenchman, Tom Dillmann, will both remain as test, reserve and simulator drivers for the team, for the 2024 season of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

  • Jaguar TCS Racing announce reserve and test driver line-up ahead of the 2024 season of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship
  • Swede Joel Eriksson will continue to support the British team for the second year
  • Tom Dillmann remains with Jaguar TCS Racing for the fourth season together
  • The 2024 season of the all-electric World Championship begins in Mexico City this weekend

Joel and Tom’s focus will include simulator support at the team’s new headquarters in Kidlington, Oxfordshire. They will also assist with testing of the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 to ensure the car is as competitive as possible as the British team head into the second year of the Gen3 era of the all-electric World Championship.

Last season Eriksson provided support to the Jaguar TCS Racing team, travelling to all 16 races as reserve driver. Joel raced in Formula 4, Formula 3 European Championship and DTM before competing in the Formula E rookie test in Marrakesh for DS Virgin Racing in 2018. The 25-year-old went on to be named the official test and reserve driver for Dragon Racing in 2019 and took part in his second Formula E rookie test. He made his debut in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in the 2021 Puebla E-Prix for Dragon Penske Autosport and then finished the final seven races of the season for the team.

Alongside Joel is experienced reserve and test driver Tom Dillmann. The 33-year-old has been a vital member of Jaguar TCS Racing for the last three seasons. Dillmann has been racing since the early 2000s and has competed in around 300 races during that time. Tom’s career highlights include being crowned champion of the 2016 Formula V8 3.5 series and 2010 German Formula 3. Dillmann is no stranger to Formula E having competed in 23 E-Prixs since 2017 with the Venturi and NIO Formula E teams. 

Joel and Tom join the world-class driver line-up of Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy.


Our reserve, test and simulator drivers are absolutely integral to the team’s success and play an incredibly important role within Jaguar TCS Racing.

We are very pleased to extend our relationship with both Joel and Tom. They played a crucial role cementing the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 as the most successful race car on the grid in the 2023 season, and we are excited for both drivers to continue their role in the Jaguar TCS Racing family.

It’s really exciting to be remaining with Jaguar TCS Racing this season as a reserve driver. I’ve really enjoyed my time with the team over the past year, so I’m looking forward to continuing to support them this season.

Joel Eriksson

This will be my fourth season with the team as reserve driver, something I’m extremely proud of. We have come so close to winning the World Championship over the past few seasons, so I can’t wait to do everything I can to support the team in achieving this goal.

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 2023 Drivers’ World Championship with 197 points, his biggest points haul in Formula E, and continues to compete for the team in 2024. Nick Cassidy joins the team’s driver line-up for the 2024 season of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.   

The 2023 season saw all teams race with the Gen3 car, the world’s first net zero race car. Jaguar TCS Racing continues to race with the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 in 2024.   

Beyond its all-electric concept, Formula E is unique in the world of motorsport for its choice of venues. The 2024 championship will take place on existing tracks and temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities including Mexico City, Diriyah and Monaco, with new locations including Tokyo and Shanghai. The season finale will play out across a double-header race weekend in London.    

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 Fortescue WAE, 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.    

Formula E remains a key priority for JLR and the company’s Reimagine strategy. As the premier all-electric world championship, Formula E allows the team to test and develop new electric vehicle technologies in a high-performance environment. It continues to be the test bed for the team’s Race to Innovate mission that will see Race to Road and Road to Race learnings that will help shape the 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.
