Shanghai, China – 25 May 2024: The inaugural Shanghai E-Prix saw Jaguar TCS Racing driver Mitch Evans take his second win of the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, with teammate and Drivers’ Championship leader, Nick Cassidy, finishing in third place.

With a second double-podium finish this season, Jaguar TCS Racing extend their lead in the Teams’ World Championship, with Jaguar taking the lead of the Manufacturers’ Trophy.

At the Shanghai International Circuit, Mitch Evans, who qualified in third position, carefully managed the energy efficiency of his Jaguar I-TYPE 6 throughout the race. The Kiwi tactically took both his Attack Mode activations by lap 11 while never deviating from the top six. Mitch then took the lead on lap 13 from the Porsche of António Félix da Costa. Mitch continued to battle in the lead group for the remainder of the race. By lap 20, Porsche’s Pascal Wehrlein led again, swapping positions with Mitch for the lead twice more by lap 28. Mitch then made a decisive and dramatic move for the lead around the outside of Turn 1 on the final lap of the 29-lap race.

Championship leader, Nick Cassidy, drove an incredible race to move up from tenth on the grid to third place – his eighth podium finish of the season and his fifth in succession. The early laps saw Nick conserve energy, running outside the top ten, before beginning to move through the pack from lap 12 onwards. Halfway through the E-Prix, Nick had progressed to fifth place and, with a significant energy advantage over the drivers ahead, on lap 25 he moved into third. Nick held position behind Mitch, allowing his teammate to attack for the win, and narrowly missed taking second place on the very last corner. Nick maintains his lead of the Drivers’ World Championship – now with only five rounds to go.

Mitch Evans, Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #9: “We had a really great race today. We were never outside of the top six and did exactly what we needed to do, and with Nick in third it’s a fantastic result for the team. Hopefully we can repeat the success tomorrow.

“The team were keeping me up to date with the energy levels of other cars, and I knew Nick had an energy advantage over me in the closing stages. But he helped my race and the team, so it’s a shame he didn’t get into second. At this point in the Championship it feels like last year, with everyone scoring big towards the second phase of the season. I’ve got a bit of work to do but will do what I can with five races left and hope to keep scoring well.”

Nick Cassidy, Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #37: “It was a great result. The field was always closely bunched for me, but I felt very early on that the balance in my Jaguar I-TYPE 6 was good, so it was nice to get the double podium. It’s another huge success for the team and congratulations to Mitch. The team communications were very clear towards the end of the race and I respected them. It was a mega result for the team, first and third, and I’m happy for Mitch. It was a good day for us.”

James Barclay, Managing Director, JLR Motorsport and Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal: “I’m very proud of the drivers and of the team for executing a brilliant race today, they made the right calls at the right time and were peerless – that double podium shows we got it right. The priority was to get maximum points for the team and drivers without additional risk which is why we held station towards the end, and it worked out well. We’ll keep working hard and we won’t be complacent, we have the ingredients to have another great day tomorrow, but this is Formula E and it’s incredibly competitive. So, we’ll do our homework now and give it our best shot again tomorrow, but we’ll enjoy this moment for a few hours.”

Round 12 of the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship takes place on the Shanghai International Circuit again tomorrow, 26 May.

Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first luxury manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series.

In the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, Jaguar TCS Racing finished runners-up with 292 points – the team’s biggest points haul in Formula E.

Mitch Evans finished third in the 2023 Drivers’ World Championship with 197 points, his biggest points haul in Formula E, and continues to compete for the team in 2024. Nick Cassidy joins the team’s driver line-up for the 2024 season of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

The 2023 season saw all teams race with the Gen3 car, the world’s first net zero race car. Jaguar TCS Racing continues to race with the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 in 2024.   

Beyond its all-electric concept, Formula E is unique in the world of motorsport for its choice of venues. The 2024 championship will take place on existing tracks and temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities including Mexico City, Diriyah and Monaco, with new locations including Tokyo and Shanghai. The season finale will play out across a double-header race weekend in London.    

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Jaguar TCS Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter, and rear suspension. Jaguar, via its long-term Formula E technical partner Fortescue WAE, will supply Envision Racing with its powertrain for the Gen3 era.    

To control costs, the carbon fibre chassis and battery are common components and the same for all eleven teams. This allows the focus to be on developing efficient and lightweight electric vehicle powertrains which will improve the performance and range of future JLR electric vehicles.    

Formula E remains a key priority for JLR and the company’s Reimagine strategy. As the premier all-electric world championship, Formula E allows the team to test and develop new electric vehicle technologies in a high-performance environment. It continues to be the test bed for the team’s Race to Innovate mission that will see Race to Road and Road to Race learnings that will help shape the electric future – a future that Jaguar is passionate about, and dedicated to for the benefit of our society, the changing landscape of mobility, sustainability and our clients.    

Through our Race to Inspire mission, Jaguar TCS Racing are committed to inspiring the future generation by using the race programme to create a positive impact on our planet and the communities in which we race. From competing in the world’s first net carbon race car to supporting and training the next generation of engineers and motorsport professionals.
