Jaguar Racing Team Director
James Barclay was appointed team director for Jaguar’s Formula E programme in November 2015 and he has been responsible for managing the exciting return to motorsport in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship for the British brand. Over the last five years James has overseen the growth of Jaguar Racing into a race winning team, thanks to the team’s first Formula E win at the Rome E-Prix in April 2019 – Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991. Since then, the team have secured a Pole position and podium in Santiago, a dominant win in Mexico City and a history-making drive through the field in Marrakesh.
In addition to James’ work in Formula E, he was instrumental in the launch of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY - the world’s first electric touring car race series. As the main support series to the ABB FIA Formula E Championship for season five and six, the 10 race championship reinforced Jaguar’s commitment to electric vehicle technology.
