Race to innovate: Jaguar’s new electric-powered race cars set to thrill audiences as I-PACE eTROPHY Championship kicks off

The second season of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Championship commences in November, when electric battery, zero-emission Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY race cars will go head to head over ten races in some of the world’s most celebrated cities.

 As part of Jaguar’s mission of #FearlessProgress, the company is looking to establish itself as a leader in premium battery electric vehicles. With the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series, Jaguar has introduced the world’s first international championship for production-based electric cars. The cars are made with identical specifications so it’s down to driver skill and team tactics to decide who will be crowned champion, with the winner offered the chance to drive a Formula E race car at a test hosted by Panasonic Jaguar Racing. The series offers a different VIP driver the opportunity to compete in each Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY race, which allows for a range of competition throughout the series and adds to the suspense for each new city. As the official logistics partner, DHL is responsible for the transport of the race cars, garages, technical and charging equipment.
