Powell to compete in Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy full-time

W Series race winner Alice Powell will compete in the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy next season.

Powell joins returning champion Sergio Jimenez and Caca Bueno among the drivers announced ahead of the opening round later this month.

The 26-year-old made her debut in the championship at the opening race last year, competing in the VIP car. She finished fifth overall, the highest of any VIP driver competing over the course of the season.

“I really enjoyed my first experience of electric racing in Saudi Arabia last year and it’s great to be back,” said Powell. “I followed the first season from afar after my cameo, but I’m now here to win!”
Powell will race for Team Germany.

Also confirmed for the championship’s season two are Team Brazil duo Jimenez and Bueno, as well as changed line-ups for Team Saudi Arabia and Team China.

Saudi Arabia will field an all-rookie line-up of Fahad Algosaibi and Mashhur Bal Hejaila, while championship newcomer Sun Chao joins Yaqi Zhang at Team China.

“I am very happy to be back for season two along with Caca,” said Jimenez. “We worked well together last season and we want to continue that success for the team.

“The chances to the car and of course Attack Mode will mean the races are much more exciting and I can’t wait for the season to start.”

“I would like to warmly welcome all the drivers – both returning and new – to the Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy,” said series manager Mark Turner. 

“Following a successful testing event in Bedford this week, we are confident that this grid line up will provide exciting racing and a challenge for podium finishes. As we approach the start of season two, these drivers’ skills and expertise are an asset to the series.

“I am sure these drivers will perform brilliantly throughout hte season and I wish them the best of luck.”

More drivers are expected to be confirmed ahead of the opening race in Saudi Arabia on 22nd November.

The series has also confirmed it will race alongside Formula E at Sanya in March, taking the calendar up to 10 races.
