Jaguar TCS Racing celebrate International Women’s Day with an exclusive tour of their headquarters and a series of digital activity.

  • Jaguar TCS Racing celebrate International Women’s Day by showcasing varied roles of women in the team
  • The British team host 30 girls at their headquarters, giving students an inspiring behind-the-scenes tour, interactive workshop and immersive technical experiences
  • Photography and video content spotlighting women across commercial and technical, created by an all-female crew, also goes live today
  • The activity is part of Jaguar TCS Racing’s wider Race to Inspire mission which aims to inspire and support the next generation into motorsport

Jaguar TCS Racing are today hosting young women at their technical facility in Kidlington, Oxfordshire. 30 girls from across the UK are due to join the British race team at their state-of-the-art innovation centre, which opened last year.

 The students, aged between 11 and 18, will take part in a series of interactive experiences – immersing them in the technology behind the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 race car - along with discussions and workshops with some of the women in the Jaguar TCS Racing team, from a variety of commercial and technical roles.

Visiting students were via the FIA Girls on Track programme, which focuses on increasing female participation in motorsport; TCS’ Ignite my Future, which is a pioneering effort to empower educators through a transdisciplinary approach that integrates computational thinking into core subjects; and Females in Motorsport, a volunteer-run platform.

As part of their Race to Inspire mission, Jaguar TCS Racing aim to encourage young women and girls into motorsport and STEM careers through education initiatives, school visits and events.

In addition, Jaguar TCS Racing are celebrating the women who have each played their part in the team’s success. Women from the commercial team – including Events, Business Operations, Partnerships and Finance – and the technical team – including Engineering, Procurement and Programme Management – came together for an empowering content shoot, with the aim to inspire inclusion by illustrating how positive a career in motorsport can be.

The content was created by an all-female crew – photographer, videographer, producer and editor – to equally celebrate women in the creative industries.

International Women's Day - Behind The Scenes

International Women’s Day gives us the opportunity to celebrate some of the incredible women who contribute to Jaguar TCS Racing’s success. By showcasing these women, we hope to inspire young girls to consider a career in motorsport, or within JLR more widely.

James Barclay
Managing Director, JLR Motorsport and Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal

Back in 2016 when I helped set up Jaguar TCS Racing, I was the only woman within our small team, so I’m very proud that today we have a whole host of talented women in a variety of roles, who each play their part in our success. It can sometimes feel like a male dominated world, both in motorsport and in leadership, so it’s really important that we have brought so many young girls and women into our facility today to learn more about the women in our team and their roles. This is just one example of our Race to Inspire mission which sees us aim to inspire future generations into motorsport and STEM careers within the team.

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.
