TOUGH NEW YORK CITY E-PRIX

Kiwi, Mitch Evans, started the ABB New York City E-Prix in sixteenth after being at the mercy of group one for the seventeenth race in a row, but showed his racecraft by carving his way through the pack, gaining seven places. Evans demonstrated great pace off-the-line and moved from sixteenth into fourteenth in the first lap, overtaking Oliver Turvey and Sérgio Sette Câmara. He continued to show the speed and efficiency of the Jaguar I-TYPE 5 throughout the race, overtaking Norman Nato, Jake Dennis and Antonio Felix Da Costa and getting up into the points. Unfortunately an electrical issue caused Evans to retire with 27 minutes of the race remaining.



On day two, starting again from group one, Mitch made it into Super Pole before executing a fantastic lap. The race itself was a great performance from the Kiwi where he was controlling the gap to Nick Cassidy behind him perfectly but unfortunately the rear suspension broke taking him out of the points when he was agonisingly close to the finish line.




Mitch and Jaguar Racing had multiple skiing champion and Jaguar Land Rover ambassador, Lindsey Vonn, visiting for the tenth round of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and experienced the thrill of the Red Hook track in Brooklyn, overlooking Manhattan in the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE.
