The Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy race car will make its global debut with a demonstration lap at the Berlin ePrix.
The specially modified I-Pace, 20 of which will compete in the new FE support series next season, has already completed a number of development and tyre tests in preparation for its first public run.
“We are excited to reveal the new Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy race car in Berlin and demonstrate its dynamic capabilities for the first time,” said Jaguar Racing team director James Barclay.
“The team at Jaguar Racing and Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) are building the key foundations for the incredibly exciting championship and we are pleased with the progress of our test and development programme, which has included a successful tyre test with our partner Michelin.
“We are happy with the way the championship is progressing, and we are attracting more interest from teams around the world who want to be involved in the pioneering championship.”
So far, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing are the only team confirmed for the championship’s inaugural season, which begins later this year and will run alongside Formula E’s 2018-19 championship.
The driver for the Berlin demonstration is yet to be confirmed.
Jaguar also announced M-Sport’s race technology division, MS-RT, as the championship’s technical operations partner.
Barclay said M-Sport will bring a “wealth of experience, expertise, and professionalism” to the championship.
