Jaguar series finished off in New York

Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy 2018/19 finished the season in New York, where they ran for the second day in a row. Unfortunately there were only ten cars to start, since guest driver Mark Hacking couldn’t participate due to his accident yesterday. We already crowned the two champions yesterday, and that was why Sergio Jimenez could take Pole Position without any pressure. Like yesterday, his teammate Caca Bueno took second place, with Simon Evans third and Katherine Legge fourth. Bryan Sellers wasn’t on the track at all, since the mechanics found yet…

Close race on narrow Swiss track

Round 11 of ABB FIA Formula E Championship 2018/19 was run in the Swiss town of Bern. It’s the second year a row where the city hosts a Formula E race, but it was a completely different track compared to last year. The track this year was much narrower, so the drivers knew beforehand that the qualifying would be important – even more important than usual in the electric series. Championship leader Jean-Eric Vergne had taken Pole Position, ahead of Mitch Evans, Sebastien Buemi, Pascal Wehrlein, Maximilian Günther, Sam Bird,…

Formula E 2019/20 schedule announced

ABB FIA Formula E Championship has announced their 2019/20 racing schedule. The majority of the races are current events, but South Korea is a new addition. London returns after a few years out. And then we have two TBC races on the calendar so far. The race on 14 December clashes with the FIA World Endurance Championship race in Bahrain, so that puts drivers like Sebastien Buemi and Sam Bird in a difficult situation, if they choose to continue at Nissan e.dams and Envision Virgin Racing respectively – that is…

12 Jaguars loose in Berlin

Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY had come to the season’s eighth round, that would be run at the old Tempelhof airport in Berlin. Caca Bueno had taken Pole Position in front of his teammate Sergio Jimenez and Simon Evans. Championship leader Bryan Sellers started in P4, just ahead of the new driver in the field, Adam Carroll. Carroll replaces Stefan Rzadzinski, since the Canadian had damaged too many cars and the other drivers were very upset with him in Monaco, after hitting both Rahal Letterman Lanigan cars in just a few metres…

Electric battle in the Principality

It wasn’t, however, Vergne who had been the quickest in qualifying, but Rowland instead. He had a three-position grid penalty due to an…

Eight winners in eight races

The eighth round of ABB FIA Formula E Championship was run at the streets of Paris, where there was once again drama before, during, and after the race. Oliver Rowland got Pole Position in front of his Nissan e.dams teammate Sebastien Buemi, as well as Robin Frijns and Felipe Massa. The drama in qualifying was at both Mahindra Racing cars, Jerome D’Ambrosio and Pascal Wehrlein, were disqualified, since they had driven with too low tire pressure on both cars. Thus they had to start from P21 and 22 instead of…

Piquet Jr out, Lynn in

Panasonic Jaguar Racing are doing a driver change in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. Nelson Piquet Jr. are no longer part of the team, after both parties have decided to end their deal after one and a half seasons. Piquet Jr. is the very first Formula E Champion in history, when he won the title in 2014/15. It’s been a bit tough for him to follow up on that result, since the Brazilian has been unlucky to be in teams without podium potential, or only on very limited occasions.…
