Jaguar will launch the first support series for Formula E in 2018-19, using Jaguar’s first battery electric vehicle, the I-PACE.
The Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy will be the first championship for a production-based electric car, and will follow the Formula E series around the globe.
The calendar is yet to be confirmed, Jaguar announced that the grid will be capped at 20 drivers with a VIP entry in each race
The format will work around the Formula E schedule, with a practice and qualifying session before a thirty minute race.
Jaguar have also announced that they are hoping to offer ‘arrive and drive’ packages, that will give drivers the technical support and spares to take part in the series.
The first person to show interest in that offer was Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag, who said that he would relish the chance to take part in the new series.
