Sacha Fenestraz to drive Jaguar I-Type 4 during E-Prix Rookie test

Panasonic Jaguar Racing welcomes test driver Sacha Fenestraz to drive the Jaguar I-TYPE 4 in the one-day ‘rookie’ test on 1 March following the Marrakesh E-Prix.

Twenty-year-old Sacha has raced in some of the most competitive single-seater series in the world. He was born in France and grew up in Argentina where he dominated the national karting scene. When he turned 13, he made the bold move to Europe to pursue his dream of becoming a racing driver.

In the early days of his career, Sacha asserted his dominance in French Formula F4, Formula Renault and FIA Formula 3 where he fine-tuned his race-craft. In 2019, he proved his worth by securing the Japanese Formula 3 title at his first attempt and achieved his third single-seater title in five years. 2020 sees Sacha remain racing in Japan in the fast and competitive Super Formula and Super GT500 championships.

Sacha Fenestraz, Rookie Test Driver:

“I am extremely happy and grateful for this amazing opportunity Panasonic Jaguar Racing have given me. I’m really looking forward to my first experience in the Jaguar I-TYPE 4, it’s going to be something very different to what I’m used to – I’ve never driven an electric racing car before. I’m like a kid with a new toy, I just can’t wait to get to Marrakesh.”

James Barclay, Panasonic Jaguar Racing Team Director:

“It is great to have Sacha join us for the rookie test, he is a young driver we’ve had an eye on for a while having achieved a lot of success in his career to date. We’ve got a thorough test program planned for him in Marrakesh. It’s important that we use these rookie tests to not only offer young drivers the opportunity to experience Formula E and showcase their talent but to also assist in the development of the I-TYPE 4. The whole team is looking forward to working with him.”
