Panasonic Jaguar Racing made it three in a row to earn valuable points as Mitch and Adam finished P9 and P15 respectively. The points leap the team into P8 in the overall standings, halfway through the season.
Racing around the historic Les Invalides complex, the Paris ePrix saw several incidents that challenged the team to adapt their race strategy. When a competitor collision on lap 16 triggered a full course yellow flag, the duo pitted early to take advantage of the slow moving cars.
The strategy pushed Carroll to P15 when he returned, but he was given a drive-through penalty for completing his pit stop less than one second under the minimum time.

Mitch Evans, second in his earlier qualifying group, pitted from P8, but due to a small issue on his second car, re-joined the action out of position. However, he managed to battle his way back to finish in P9, his third consecutive points result in his rookie season.
James Barclay, Team Director, Panasonic Jaguar Racing: “This is a very tricky circuit but we brought both cars home and came away with a deserved result. Ultimately, the Jaguar I-TYPE package and the team are making very positive progress and are demonstrating competitive race pace.”
Mitch Evans, #20: “The race was challenging for all the drivers today but I really got to grips with it as the day went on and I was happy to be competitive in my qualifying group. The team made the right decision to pit under the full course yellow but we had a small issue that lost me some time in exiting the garage.”
Adam Carroll, #47: “It’s great the team scored points again. Both Mitch and I stayed out of trouble and the team took advantage during the full course yellow. I was unlucky with the penalty but we accept that and look forward to the next two races.”
Panasonic Jaguar Racing now takes off for Germany for the final race of the European leg and the first of three consecutive double-header races.
