 Panasonic Jaguar Racing are a British based racing team, set to make their debut in the 2016/17 FIA Formula E Championship at the 2016 Hong Kong ePrix.[1] Jaguar Racing will use a powertrain developed in house by Jaguar Cars, entering their maiden FE season with manufacturer backing.[1]

BackgroundEdit

Jaguar are a name long associated with International motorsport, and have been entering pseudo-factory efforts in major series since the 1950s, most notably at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Yet, the official Jaguar Racing team would make its first appearance as a Formula One effort in the year 2000, when Ford purchased Stewart Grand Prix.[2] In four seasons the Jaguar Racing effort would only ever manage to challenger for minor points, before being sold to Red Bull Racing for the 2005 season, although the new marque would still use the car Jaguar had built for the season.[2]

Formula E HistoryEdit

Jaguar made a shock announcement to join Formula E in December 2015, replacing the failed Trulli Formula E Team as both an entrant and a manufacturer.[1] Concessions were made to ensure that Jaguar, who had revived their F1 racing name, would be competitive during their maiden season, with the new car christened the Jaguar I-Type 1.[3] A partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering was formed as soon as their FE entry was announced, with the new I-Type up and running by the end of January 2016.[3]

The team's official debut would take place at the 2016 Donington Test, with Jaguar hoping to use the test to assess potential drivers for their debut season.[3] The quartet of Mitch Evans, Alex Lynn, Harry Tincknell and Adam Carroll would all take part during the first three days of the test, with Evans and Carroll ultimately signing up to be the team's racing programme during the test.[1] On the 8th of September 2016 the team unveiled their livery, drivers and title sponsor at their season launch at Donington Park before the cars were shipped to Hong Kong for the season opener.[4]
