Battersea Park debut for Jaguar?

Jaguar joins Formula E as manufacturer team

Jaguar could unveil their season three car and driver line-up at the Battersea Park race weekend in July, reports motorsport.com.

Formula E’s newest team is set to give its new car a demo run and announce its season three driver line-up at Battersea Park.

The Jaguar Formula E car will be run out of a specially provided pit garage at the London venue as it gears up for further private testing in July, before the mandatory public testing at Donington Park in August.

A source within the team told Motorsport.com this week that the car would “test in June ahead of the Battersea run”.

The source added: “We are likely to have a British driver announced there, too. Someone who will do a very good job for us, someone who both Jaguar and Williams really believe in.”

The source also indicated that the Jaguar Formula E car could have a shakedown run this month at Kemble airfield in Gloucestershire before further runs ahead of Battersea Park.

Anthony Davidson, Alex Lynn, Sam Bird and Adam Carroll have all been linked to roles with the Jaguar Formula E team.

It is believed that one of these drivers could be announced alongside a current Formula E frontrunner at Battersea Park in early July.
