Shanghai was great for the team with a R11 win for Mitch Evans and a podium for Nick Cassidy, his eighth in the season to date. A double points‑scoring result also in R12 meant that it was a successful weekend on our return to China which enabled us to extend our Teams’ World Championship lead to 73 points. Nick also extended his lead in the Drivers’ World Championship with Mitch moving into third position. This strong performance increases our current team points haul to 299, more than our total for the entirety of last season ‑ an amazing achievement.

“We are looking forward to returning to Portland for its second year on the Formula E calendar – it’s an exciting and challenging track – as the team focuses on maximising performance in this final phase of the season with just four rounds remaining.

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

It was another amazing weekend in Shanghai. Getting the win and seeing Nick on the podium on Saturday before a strong finish on Sunday sets us in good stead for the last four races. I’m looking forward to returning to Portland for the second year and challenging myself to increase our team lead. The team and I are also working hard to continue the upward trajectory in the Drivers’ standings.

Mitch Evans
Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #9

Shanghai was a positive race weekend and overall, I achieved strong results, including my eighth podium of the season. It will be great to be back in Portland after topping the podium last season. I have hopes of achieving the same result this year and I’m confident we can hold my position in the standings and work with the team to extend our lead.

Notes to Editors

 ABOUT JAGUAR TCS RACING    

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 world 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.
