2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship: R6 & R7, Misano, Italy 13/14 April

Jaguar TCS Racing leads the Teams’ World Championship with 100 points, with drivers Nick Cassidy and Mitch Evans second and sixth respectively in the drivers’ standings.

Sheldon van der Linde will drive in Friday’s FPO, his third rookie test for the team.

The inaugural Misano E-Prix starts at 14:03 local time (BST +1 hours) on Saturday 13 April.

James Barclay, Managing Director, JLR Motorsport and Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal: “Misano has been a great stage for other motorsport categories and, as a new addition to the Formula E calendar, we look forward to the challenge and racing once again in Italy. Our visits to Italy in previous years have yielded strong results, with Mitch winning three times in Rome over the past two seasons. Misano will of course be a very different challenge for everyone and we have been working hard on our preparations, we are very much hoping that our return to Italy sees more strong results. 

“We are also excited to welcome South African Sheldon van der Linde back for the rookie test session for Jaguar TCS Racing in Friday’s FP0 session. Sheldon is a fantastic racing driver with a proven track record already in his young career. His laps around the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli will also provide the team with a solid platform to work from heading into the rest of the weekend.” 

Mitch Evans, Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #9: “Racing in Italy holds fond memories for me. Rome was a circuit where I enjoyed a lot of success over the past seasons, but now Misano presents an exciting new challenge. We know our car is competitive, and Misano will give me that opportunity to build on my performances so far this season.”

Nick Cassidy, Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #37: “I’m looking forward to Formula E’s inaugural race in Misano. Racing on more traditional tracks presents its own unique elements compared to the street circuits we’re usually on and, as always, strategy will be key. I’m looking forward to taking to track in Italy again in front of the incredible Italian fans.”

Sheldon van der Linde, Jaguar TCS Racing Rookie Driver: “Getting behind the wheel of the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 is always an exciting opportunity for me. This will be my third rookie test for the team, at a track I know well from past experience so that will be crucial to gain some insights for the team during FP0. My target is to help Nick and Mitch hit the ground running for their championship campaign.”
