The deal means Evans and Jaguar TCS Racing's relationship will become the longest-standing driver and team pairing in Formula E history - with the outfit citing consistency as key in the decision, as Evans' longstanding teammate Sam Bird leaves the team.
The partnership is also one of the most successful since the inception of the all-electric World Championship. Evans made his debut with Jaguar Racing in 2016 in his inaugural Formula E campaign and has since become widely accepted as among the quickest and most talented drivers on the grid. In 2019, he translated his promise into a first race win for the team in Rome. Together, Evans and the team have formed a formidable pairing achieving 10 wins, 25 podiums, eight TAG Heuer Fastest Laps, six Julius Baer Pole Positions and 733 championship points over the last seven years.
“Having been with Jaguar TCS Racing since 2016, it was the natural choice to continue our successful partnership," says the 29-year-old. "We’ve had some incredible moments over the last seven years and I’m looking forward to writing our next chapter together. I am proud to race for Jaguar and play my part with the team in JLR’s Reimagine strategy.”
New Zealander Evans finished Season 9 third in the Drivers’ World Championship, achieving his biggest points haul to date with four wins, seven podiums and three poles to his name - taking the title fight to the final weekend for the third successive season. Evans' efforts also helped Jaguar TCS Racing’s to a second place finish in the Teams’ World Championship. The British team took the runner-up trophy home, behind Jaguar’s customer team, Envision Racing, who clinched the title.
Evans is one of the most successful drivers to have represented the iconic British Marque, joining legends of the sport including Norman Dewis, Stirling Moss and Mike Hawthorn, to name a few.
"It’s an absolute pleasure to confirm that Mitch remains a key part of Jaguar TCS Racing for the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and beyond," adds James Barclay, Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal. "Mitch has been one of the founding members of the team since Jaguar returned to racing in 2016 and is now one of the longest serving drivers in Jaguar’s history.
"The fact that our future remains together for a new chapter is an accolade we are both proud of. Mitch has time and again demonstrated that he is one of the most talented drivers in the world, so we are pleased that our formidable partnership continues. I’m excited to build on the successes we have enjoyed to date and challenging for more championships together.”
