Michelin tyres to star in new Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY

A founding partner of the successful FIA Formula E Championship for full-electric single-seater cars, Michelin Motorsport is to extend its involvement in electric motorsport as official tyre supplier to the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.

 

 

 

This new, 10-race single-make competition is due start at the end of 2018 and will be the first international racing series to feature battery-powered production cars.

The competition will run as a support formula at all rounds of the 2018/2019 Formula E Championship and will see up to 20 identical Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHYs compete on Michelin tyres. The car itself will be based on the carmaker’s first electric vehicle – the Jaguar I-PACE – which is due to go on sale later this year.

Michelin Motorsport Director Pascal Couasnon views this announcement as a further example of the company’s “racing today for tomorrow’s mobility” credo: “We’ve been a partner of Formula E from the outset and will be closely involved in the FIM Moto-e World Cup which kick offs in 2019. We are naturally excited to be extending our electric motorsport programme to include the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY and look forward to working alongside Jaguar Racing.”

Drivers wishing to compete in these 30-minute clashes in the exiciting city-centre locations visited by Formula E will be able to benefit from Jaguar Racing’s ‘Arrive and Drive’ package. This extends from logistical and technical support, to dedicated television coverage and the provision of Michelin tyres.

“Jaguar Racing is thrilled to have such an established motorsport partner as Michelin joining the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY,” says James Barclay, Jaguar Racing Team Director. “We are confident Michelin will help us to deliver a successful and exciting series.”

The British-based team already races on Michelin rubber within the framework of the FIA Formula E Championship which it joined at the beginning of the 2016/2017 season.
