Mitch Evans

When Jaguar TCS Racing's Mitch Evans missed qualifying after parking his Jaguar I-TYPE 6 at the end of the pit lane in final practice, he knew he was up against it in the Southwire Portland E-Prix...

Portland International Raceway

The Portland International Raceway plays host to the inaugural Southwire Portland E-Prix. The permanent circuit is a familiar stop for American motorsport series such as Indycar, and the layout has a history of providing some close battles. In 1997, the premier American single-seater series saw the closest three-way finish on a road course as Mark Blundell bested Gil de Ferran and Raul Boesel by half a tenth.
