TWR TECHEETAH has today launched its new Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series livery, which draws on the team’s heritage and past success alongside Jaguar in some of motorsport’s biggest series.
The livery is inspired by the 1988 Jaguar XJR-9 – which was built and run by TWR – and claimed success on its first outing at 24 Hours of Le Mans, alongside six other race victories to claim that year’s World Sports Prototype Championship.
While the tie-up between TECHEETAH and TWR is relatively recent, TWR TECHEETAH’s Mark Preston has a relationship with the engineering firm that spans more than two decades, having worked alongside Tom Walkinshaw at Arrows F1 in 1996.
Keith Smout, TWR TECHEETAH Team Principal, said: “We’re incredibly proud of our collaboration with TWR and this livery is synonymous with their engineering excellence and success across motorsport categories. Together, we’re pushing to continue this history of winning into the all-electric era, as we push to become the inaugural champions of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.”
“We know that there is a real affinity for retro liveries amongst fans, can’t wait to see the response that our cars get at this weekend’s race.”
The new livery will debut on Stefan Rzadzinski’s car at this weekend’s Mexico ePrix round of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series.
