|Whitley, UK, Tuesday 5 June – Panasonic Jaguar Racing is ready to electrify Zurich when the city hosts its debut all-electric street race – the first Swiss motor race since 1954.
Set against the beautiful backdrop of Lake Zurich and the Alps, the new city track hosts the ABB FIA Formula E Championship on Sunday 10 June. Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s Mitch Evans and Nelson Piquet Jr will race along the shores of the lake before looping back into the city centre on a 2.46km circuit. With no experience of the track, the drivers have worked hard in the simulator ahead of hitting the Zurich roads during shakedown on Saturday 9 June.
As the end of the 2017/18 season approaches, Panasonic Jaguar Racing hope to clinch some valuable championship points ahead of the finale in New York. The team has improved markedly this year, scoring points in every race apart from Paris. Confident of a result in Zurich the team will be focussed to put themselves in a strong position for the final weekend of the championship when the lights go green in New York.
