    Panasonic Jaguar Racing focus on Montreal after New York City Formula E debut

    • After two days of all-electric racing on the streets of Brooklyn, Panasonic Jaguar Racing not only helped make history as the first electric street race within the five boroughs of New York City, it also added to their points total, now sitting at 21.

      Saturday’s race saw Adam and Mitch qualifying P13 and P14 respectively. After a frantic race, Adam finished in P10, adding another point to the team's total, while Mitch was involved in a collision that saw him finish out of point contention.

      Sunday’s race saw its degree of difficulty increase as six laps were added to the overall racing distance.

      Watch all the highlights from the latest Formula E race held in New York City.

      Mitch qualified in P12, however, a technical issue during lap seven forced him to leave the race. Adam started the race in P18, but the experienced Northern Irishman battled hard to gain seven positions to finish in P11, narrowly missing out on a consecutive points finish.

      James Barclay, Team Director, Panasonic Jaguar Racing: “We are proud to have made Jaguar’s North American return to racing here in New York City. We had hoped for a bit more from the event and have been unlucky not to come away with more points. We have faced some new challenges this weekend and the learning will be invaluable in making us a stronger team in the future.”

      Adam Carroll, #47: “That was a long but exciting race today. I had a difficult qualifying so I started out of position, but we succeeded in hitting our aggressive energy targets and we stayed in the hunt throughout the race and nearly came away with another point.”

      Mitch Evans, #20: “We had an okay qualifying today. I’ve had consistent one-lap pace all weekend and a couple of tenths more would have put me in the super pole group. This track suited the Jaguar I-TYPE but unfortunately we weren’t able to capitalize.”

      Panasonic Jaguar Racing now travels to Montreal, Canada for the final two rounds of the season, and the conclusion of the British team’s debut season in the all-electric FIA Formula E Championship.
