Williams Advanced Engineering will be Technical Partner to the Jaguar Formula E Team. If you remember, Williams partnered with Jaguar on the development of the Jaguar C-X75 plug-in hybrid concept car.
Panasonic Jaguar Racing will compete in the third FIA Formula E season with the first all-electric Jaguar racing car in history: the I-TYPE 1. Now, Jaguar does have roots in motorsport and it’s 10 years since it’ll have a factory team competing in a race.
The new I-TYPE 1 will be driven by the team’s official reserve driver Ho-Pin Tung while the driver line-up includes Adam Carroll and Mitch Evans. Jaguar detailed its partnership with Panasonic that will see the leading electronics and automotive technology company partner with the Jaguar Racing Formula E team to develop a future that promises to push the boundaries of electric technology in a performance environment. In addition, Jaguar announced Lear Corporation as an Official Team Partner.
The Panasonic Jaguar Racing team has successfully completed 21 days of testing, including the last Formula E public test, which finished at Donington Park Circuit.
