30 June 2024

Jaguar TCS Racing emerged from a tough day of competition in Portland with a lead of 55‑points in the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E Teams’ World Championship, and with drivers Nick Cassidy and Mitch Evans retaining first and third positions respectively in the Drivers’ World Championship. 

  • Jaguar TCS Racing lead the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E Teams’ World Championship by 55‑points after R13 in Portland
  • Jaguar TCS Racing drivers Nick Cassidy and Mitch Evans remain first and third respectively in the Drivers’ World Championship
  • Despite incredible pace from the Jaguar I‑TYPE 6 – which saw Mitch Evans qualify on Pole and secure fastest lap – the final race result was disappointing for the whole team
  • A spin on the penultimate lap for Nick Cassidy – who was leading the race at that point after an incredible drive through the field – saw him finish outside of the points
  • Mitch Evans then crossed the line first, but was relegated to eighth place following a five‑second penalty for contact earlier in the race
  • Jaguar TCS Racing are considering the right‑to‑review process against the stewards’ decision to penalise Mitch
  • Round 14 of the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship takes place tomorrow, 30 June, on the Portland International Speedway

The result was a disappointing one for everyone at Jaguar TCS Racing after late race drama for Nick and a five‑second penalty for pole‑sitter Mitch – who crossed the line first – denied the team what looked like being a one‑two finish with just two‑laps to go.

Championship leader Nick Cassidy – having driven a brilliant race to come through the field from 10th on the grid – was leading on the penultimate lap, but a spin at turn ten dropped him out of the points. Mitch, who was second at that point but already facing a five‑second post‑race penalty for contact with the McLaren of Jake Hughes, took the lead and crossed the line first – a position then adjusted to an eighth‑place finish once that penalty was applied.

While the stewards’ decision to apply a five‑second penalty to Mitch is not open to appeal, Jaguar TCS Racing are considering the right‑to‑review process which would enable the review of evidence provided by the team.

The team now shift their focus to tomorrow’s race – with Nick’s drive through the field to lead along with Mitch’s pole‑position and fastest lap meaning the potential to once again fight for points and podiums is highly motivating.


Today was a really tough day in the office for us all. It started on a high, with Mitch securing pole position – adding three valuable points to both the team and his own championship campaigns. In the race, Nick drove incredibly well to come through the field to lead, and with two laps to go a 1‑2 finish looked likely. However, Nick’s late spin and Mitch’s five‑second penalty meant a disappointing result that is hard for both drivers and the team to take. But we have a fast car, fast racing drivers, and I am really proud of everyone at Jaguar TCS Racing. We will review today’s race as a team this evening, learn from it and look at how we can take the positive pace we displayed today into the race tomorrow.

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

These races are really hard to execute, but as a team we keep delivering and deserved some big points today. It’s tricky and frustrating to take. I think it was an unfortunate set of circumstances that led to the incident today, but I don’t think that the penalty reflected the incident. We’ll now look forward to tomorrow.

Mitch Evans
Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #9

On a positive note I think today I had 25 of the best laps I’ve driven in Formula E. I managed the energy, the car was very good and we positioned ourselves well. So, I’m going to take that for now and go into tomorrow knowing that we have three races left in the Championship with a good lead. I won’t let this moment define those next three races.

Nick Cassidy
Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #37

Round 14 of the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship takes place tomorrow, 30 June, on the Portland International Speedway.

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.
