Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy adds attack mode for 2019/20 season

The ABB FIA Formula E-supporting Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy has revealed it will use attack mode in its second season, having released its 2019/20 calendar

Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy adds attack mode for 2019/20 season

Autosport understands that Jaguar used the 2018/19 season finale at New York to try out elements of the system outside of the official timed sessions, before evaluating whether to include it in '19/20 in response to a lack of overtaking in its first campaign.

The championship will have 10 races, beginning at FE's season-opening Saudi Arabia round and finishing at the new-for-2019/20 London event.

The four FE rounds the Jaguars will not support are Santiago and Seoul, plus the dates that are current 'tbc' venues - one of which is expected to be Sanya.

A statement from Jaguar said that "further sporting and technical developments will be revealed in due course, as well as the announcement of team and driver line-ups".

"It's exciting to look forward to season two of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY and reveal the exciting locations for our second year," said Jaguar team director James Barclay.

"New for season two is the London double-header, which is a fantastic opportunity to race the I-PACE eTROPHY twice in front of our home crowds.

"We are also excited to bring 'attack mode' to the series.

"It has been a big success in Formula E and I am sure it will also inject even more excitement into eTROPHY."

The I-PACEs have returned to their UK base since New York, and are undergoing preparations for testing in October.

The series is targeting a 17-car grid for the new season after averaging 12 entries in 2018/19.

I-PACE championship manager Marion Barmby has left Jaguar and Autosport understands she will take up a new position elsewhere in motorsport that will be revealed in the coming days.

Provisional 2019/20 calendar

22-23 November 2019: Ad Diriyah (double-header)
15 February 2020: Mexico City
1 March 2020: Hong Kong
4 April 2020: Rome
18 April 2020: Paris
30 May 2020: Berlin
20 June 2020: New York
25-26 July 2020: London (double-header)

The sharing mentality that transformed the fortunes of two Formula E teams

Electing not to share data with its competitive customer team would have been a straightforward means of gaining an edge on at least one of Mercedes' Formula E rivals last season. But by reciprocating the relationship forged under its initial HWA guise, when it was a customer to Venturi, both teams have reaped the rewards

OPINION: The 2021 Formula E campaign was one without a narrative for much of the season, with no single car or driver able to break away from the pack. That makes choosing a top 10 especially difficult, particularly as the qualifying format meant some worthy performers were unable to enjoy their day in the sun
