Another back-to-back racing weekend saw the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team being rewarded with additional points for their tireless efforts. The positive results began during Saturday’s qualifying, with the drivers finishing in a season best P6 and P7 respectively.
During the action-packed race, a crash on lap 16 brought out a full course yellow, forcing every team to choose whether to gamble on pitting for an early car swap. The British team split the race strategies and immediately called Mitch into the pits, while Adam raced on for an additional lap. The Kiwi rejoined the action in P5, while unfortunate circumstances had Adam rejoining in P15.
After an intense second half, Mitch finished in P7, gaining six points, while Adam finished in P16 to earn valuable data for the team.

During Sunday’s race, the last of the season, the guys raced both hard and smart to make up five places each and just narrowly missing out on further points. Mitch battled his way from P17 to P12, while Adam brought his I-TYPE in at P14 after starting at P19.
James Barclay, Team Director, Panasonic Jaguar Racing: “Being part of this innovative series has been so rewarding. We’ve learnt a huge amount in season one and really enjoyed the challenge of Jaguar’s first year of all-electric street racing.
Adam Carroll, #47: “This is one of the most competitive championships in the world but it’s the place to be for a team that is racing to innovate. If any racer or manufacturer wants to prove themselves, the Formula E championship is the place to do it.”
Mitch Evans, #20: “It’s great to be part of this team and I’m proud to help bring such a famous name back to racing. We have learned a huge amount and just being part of this has been amazing.”
The team now switches its focus onto season four, which begins in Hong Kong this December. The Jaguar I-TYPE 2’s development is well underway and the team will launch its new challenger in the coming months.
