Jaguar Land Rover commits to ABB FIA Formula E World Championship Gen3 era

Friday, Jul 23 791
Jaguar Land Rover has today officially confirmed Jaguar Racing’s long-term future to the Gen3 era of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship – set to commence in the 2022/23 season.
 
Jaguar Racing’s race-winning motorsport operation will help Jaguar Land Rover develop new sustainable technologies and set new benchmarks in quality with its partners, and support Jaguar’s renaissance as an all-electric luxury brand from 2025.
 
The Formula E programme will contribute to Jaguar Land Rover’s Reimagine strategy - a commitment to achieve zero tailpipe emissions by 2036, and net zero status across supply chain, operators, and products by 2039.
 
Jaguar’s all-electric I-TYPE race cars have achieved four victories and 12 podiums in its 59 Formula E races and will continue to be a real-world test bed for developing world-leading technologies while pushing for points, podiums and wins on track. Jaguar Racing will continue its successful long-term technical partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering into the Gen3 era of Formula E.
 
The long-term commitment comes ahead of Jaguar Racing’s first race on home soil for 17 years as the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship returns this weekend for the highly anticipated 2021 Heineken® London E-Prix double-header with action live from 14:00 BST on Channel 4 on Saturday 24 July and from 13:40 BST on Sunday 25 July.
 
The certified Net Zero Carbon Championship has a new venue to call home at London’s Royal Docks and a bespoke indoor/outdoor circuit – a world first in international single-seater motorsport.
 
The race is the first major event at ExCel London, since the venue served London as an NHS Nightingale hospital and Covid-19 vaccination centre, Saturday’s race also marks 100 days until COP26.

He has had the privilege of traveling to races all across the state of Florida (as well as one race in Ohio), watching nearly everything with a motor compete for fame and glory, as well as participating in various racing schools to get the feel of what racecar drivers go through every week.  

Adam spent several years covering motorsports for Examiner.com., where he had the opportunity to see the racing world from behind the scenes as well as the grandstands. He invites everyone to follow him on Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus, and looks forward to sharing his enthusiasm for all things racing with the readers of SpeedwayDigest.com.
