Jaguar Racing has unveiled the full race schedule for the inaugural Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy Championship. Up to twenty identical Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy racecars will line up on the grid on Saturday, December 15 in Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, for the first round of the new global electric production car racing series.

As we travel to some of the world’s most exciting cities we’ll be bringing a new kind of electric street racing to the public and inspiring the next generation of electric vehicle owners.”
