Jaguar is reinforcing its commitment to electric street racing by sponsoring the world’s first international race series for all-electric production cars, the Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy.
Jaguar leads the way when it comes to all-electric car racing. In 2016, the British manufacturer was the first classic car marque to join the ABB FIA Formula E Championship – the motorsport championship for single-seater electric cars.
The eTrophy is the main support series to the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. The 2019/2020 competition, which started in November 2019, is currently taking place over 10 rounds. Races are being held in eight cities across the world, from Sanya in China to New York City, finishing on 26th July, when all the teams will battle for the championship title in a nail-biting double-header in London's ExCeL Centre.
Putting Jaguar through its I-PACEs
Up to 20 entrants are vying for a prize fund of more than £500,000. Each driver is in control of a race-prepared version of the I-PACE, Jaguar's first all-electric road car, built by the company's Special Vehicle Operations team. As every car has identical specifications, performance will depend on driver ability and team tactics – and the best will be crowned champion.
Men and women (including the UK's own Alice Powell) will race on equal terms, while Japan's Takuma Aoki will be the first disabled person to take part in an international electric race series.

You don't have to be a professional racing driver to enjoy the outstanding power of the I-PACE – the 2019 World Car of the Year is available to test drive and buy at Dick Lovett.
