NEW ZEALAND ENDURANCE CHAMP AND RACER Simon Evans will be the only Kiwi in the first electric production car racing series that starts in Saudi Arabia in December. While older brother Mitch races in the Formula E series, Simon will race in the Jaguar I-pace etrophy SUV series, an all-electric vehicle, following an acclimatisation test session at Silverstone, UK, in late September. Simon represents one of five continents and 20 cars racing in the 10-round international series, adding: “Mitch races in Formula E and I’ve been following it for a few years now; it’s exciting, it’s definitely the future so it’s great to be involved. The Jaguar exceeded all my expectations, it was really nice to drive and the braking performance is really good. Having my brother there will be great too – we’ll be supporting each other and he’ll definitely be pushing me on.” For more information on the series and cars visit: www.jaguar.com/electrification/i-pacee-trophy.
