Formula E: reporting from the Jaguar Racing team launch

Jaguar I-Type

I attended the official unveiling of Jaguar’s Formula E team, and its I-Type all-electric race car, at Jaguar’s Gaydon Heritage Centre.

Reporting for Professional Motorsport World I wanted to delve behind the press release headlines to find out about the car’s development, which was done to a very tight deadline.

“We only started in November and we had to homologate in March – that’s an FIA requirement. That included manufacturing of parts and testing. So in terms of design we probably only had two months.”
