A quick tour, or rather two, and then goes away. This is the fate of the Jaguar i-Pace eTrophy, which has only completed two seasons before being removed from the motorsport landscape.
Competed on the sidelines of the Formula E ePrix between 2018 and 2020, the single-brand cut allowed electric SUVs to compete on city circuits. Problem, the sinuous tracks, the characteristics specific to an imposing vehicle (not very manoeuvrable and dynamic) as well as the lack of entries (a dozen at most) proved too obvious for the English manufacturer to continue this program.
"The Jaguar i-Pace eTrophy has achieved many of the goals we set for ourselves, prefer to explain James Barclay, the Championship Director. However, in these unprecedented times linked to the Covid-19 crisis, we have adjusted our strategy and made the decision to end the championship after two successful seasons. "
In 2019, Brazilian Sérgio Jimenez won in front of his compatriot Caca Bueno. The 2020 campaign, stopped after two trips, had already highlighted the domination of the defending champion (two victories).
