Jaguar TCS Racing Enters 8th Formula E Season with Top Driver Line-up
In Pretoria, South Africa, on October 17, 2023, Jaguar TCS Racing is gearing up for the 2024 season of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, bolstered by their best-ever performance and a formidable driver duo, Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy, both hailing from New Zealand. Together, they boast an impressive track record of 15 wins, 37 podium finishes, 11 pole positions, and 1,076 championship points forged through years of racing camaraderie.
Jaguar TCS Racing enters the upcoming season as a strong contender, having wrapped up the 2023 season with four wins, 11 podiums, three pole positions, and 292 points, surpassing their previous Formula E achievements. The British team consistently competed for team and driver's titles in the last three seasons.
Their Jaguar I-TYPE 6 cars clinched the top two spots in the Teams' World Championship, thanks partly to customer team Envision Racing securing the overall championship. This underscores the competitiveness of the Jaguar I-TYPE 6, with eight race wins, 20 podiums, six pole positions, and 596 championship points. It's now considered one of Jaguar's most successful race cars.
The 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship begins with official testing in Valencia, featuring the return of South African driver Sheldon Van Der Linde, who had previously impressed during rookie tests. Formula E remains a testing ground for Jaguar TCS Racing's innovations and technology transfer, supporting Jaguar's transition to an all-electric, modern luxury brand in 2025.
The team strongly partners with sponsors, including Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Wolfspeed, Dow, Castrol, OpenText, Alpinestars, and AERO.
Jaguar's participation in the net-zero carbon sport aligns with its commitment to achieving carbon neutrality across its operations, supply chain, and products by 2039.
James Barclay, Managing Director of JLR Motorsport and Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal, expresses confidence in their pursuit of the World Championship, particularly with the addition of driver Nick Cassidy alongside Mitch Evans.
Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy are determined to excel in the upcoming season. Official testing begins in Valencia on October 23, 2023, leading to the first race of the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in Mexico City on January 13, 2024.
