Jaguar Announces the I-Pace eTrophy Championship Calendar - Motor Trend

The Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy racing series calendar has been announced, with the first race scheduled to take place on December 15 in Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. The 10-round series will be held before each of the main ABB FIA Formula E races on the same city circuits throughout the 2018-19 season.

Teams who want to compete will have to purchase a $530,000 Arrive and Drive package that includes the race car, entry into all 10 rounds, vehicle transportation and storage, technical assistance, and applicable equipment. Up to 20 identical I-Pace electric race cars will participate in the series with the drivers and the car's unique setup as the only differences. Race teams will receive their I-Pace later this month at the Silverstone circuit where they will conduct the first official pre-season tests.

Following practice and qualifying trials, each eTrophy race will last 25 minutes plus one lap. It will also feature a different VIP entrant and the grand prize for the series of more than 500,000 (about $655,000 at current exchange rates).

Sabelt will partner with the series, providing seats, seatbelts, steering wheels, and head protection nets.

"Seeing Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY racecars line up on the grid in December will be a proud and historic moment for Jaguar, and spectators can expect plenty of action from the races. As we travel to some of the world's most exciting cities we'll be bringing a new kind of electric street racing to the public and inspiring the next generation of electric vehicle owners," said Championship Manager, Marion Barnaby.
