At the recent Los Angeles Auto Show, Jaguar Racing announced that the first team to join the first Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY? Electric Race Series would be Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. The team is led by Bobby Rahal, a three time IndyCar Champion and Indianapolis 500 winner. The team will join the grid at the world's first production based electric vehicle race series, beginning in December this year.
The new eTROPHY series will be the support series to the FIA Formula E Championship and will be the first of its kind, based off of a street-legal production battery electric vehicle. 20 Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY race cars will exclusively feature in the series. Throughout the 2018-19 season, each race will be held on the same weekend and on the same city street circuits. This series offers a perfect platform to showcase driving talent and electric vehicle performance, whilst competing in a zero-emissions motorsport on the world stage.
