EVANS ELEC­TRIC

New Zealand LCV - - NEWS -

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.
