- Puebla, Mexico – 19 & 20 June

- London, UK – 24 & 25 July

Jaguar Racing will compete on home soil for the first time in 17 years, with a double-header London E-Prix.
Today’s announcement confirming that the 2021 London E-Prix will take place on 24 and 25 July is very exciting for everyone at Jaguar Racing. We would like to thank Formula E, the FIA and the local stakeholders who are working incredibly hard behind the scenes to make this possible while ensuring everyone remains safe. For Jaguar Racing, it will be the first time in 17 years we have raced on ‘home soil’ and to do that in the heart of London is undoubtedly special for everyone. The majority of Jaguar Land Rover’s employees work in the UK and can’t wait to cheer on Sam and Mitch in front of a home crowd.James Barclay, Team Director Jaguar Racing
Returning to race on the streets of London is something I’ve been looking forward to since the last ABB FIA Formula E World Championship race in Battersea in 2016. The return to electric racing on home soil will be even more special as a driver for Jaguar Racing – a British motorsport team I’ve admired since I was an aspiring karter growing up close to London. I am very much looking forward to racing and entertaining our home fans and will be determined to secure a great on-track result.Sam Bird, Jaguar Racing driver #10
