Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL) announced today that experienced sports car and open-wheel racing driver Katherine Legge will drive one of the team’s two Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series electric racecars during the 2018/2019 ABB FIA Formula E season. An American-themed livery will be unveiled by RLL co-owner Bobby Rahal, Legge and team officials at the New York E-Prix 2017/2018 season-finale this weekend.
“I am very proud to be driving in the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Formula E series for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing,” said Katherine Legge. “I have followed Formula E since its inception and have been very impressed with the growth in the electric car market and electric racing as a whole. I have also wanted to drive for Bobby for the past 10 years or more so this for me is the realization of a dream. Driving for a British brand like Jaguar on a global stage and ‘racing to innovate’ sounds like the best kind of challenge to me. I’m excited!”
RLL first announced participation in the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series, the world’s first production-based electric vehicle race series, in November 2017. The team will announce the second driver prior to their first test session which is expected to take place in September in the UK.
