April 17th, 2018 Whitley, UK – Panasonic Jaguar Racing head to Rome with Alex Lynn joining Mitch Evans in a revised driver line-up for round seven round of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

Alex Lynn, #3: œWhen the opportunity to drive for Panasonic Jaguar Racing came up, I could not let it pass.   Having not raced in the championship for half of Season 5, I am eager to get behind the wheel of the Jaguar I-TYPE 3 and return to ABB FIA Formula E. 

œI have been learning a lot about the car and set up in the simulator, so I am going into the race with confidence, so that I can play my part in scoring points for the team. I will be working closely with Mitch and my engineers prior to the race to put us in the best possible position come race day. I cannot wait to be back racing in Formula E. 

Mitch Evans, #20: œI’m really excited that we are back racing in the Italian capital for a second season. Last year the race was a lot of fun, and the atmosphere from the fans was amazing, so I can only hope that we can look forward to the same again this year. 

œThe track itself is challenging as with 21 turns and just under 3km (2.84km) in length, which is a kilometre longer than Hong Kong track. The I-TYPE 3, is a quick car and having experience from driving the track in Rome last year, I know it suits my driving style, which I hope will allow me to capitalise on the potential we showed in 2018. 

œI’m coming into this race confident that I can perform well in qualifying, which will then enable the team to be in a strong position for the race. 

As a team we see the European leg of the championship as a fresh chance to meet our objectives and having Alex join the team gives us renewed confidence. 

James Barclay, Team Director, Panasonic Jaguar Racing: œPanasonic Jaguar Racing will be pushing for strong results as we head into the second half of the season. We welcome Alex Lynn to the driver line-up for Rome and look forward to working with him. 

œWe have a fast race car in the Jaguar I-TYPE 3, which is evident as Mitch achieved the second fastest lap in Sanya – but now we need to utilise this. The team are ready to start the European races with a strong result for both Mitch and Alex. 
