Panasonic Jaguar Racing are looking to move on after a disappointing New York ePrix.

The British team had a weekend to forget as they only managed one point from the two races, and slipped down to last place in the team’s championship.

Their results included two retirements for Mitch Evans, who suffered technical issues in both races.

Speaking afterwards both drivers said they were now looking ahead to the final double header in Montreal in an effort to put this weekend behind them.

Evans said, “It’s disappointing not to have finished both races. This track suited the Jaguar I-TYPE but we weren’t able to capitalise on that this weekend.

“With the frantic racing going on around us, Adam has shown that clean racing and patience is rewarded here.  I can’t wait to give it my best in Montreal and finish my first year in Formula E on a high.”

While his team-mate Adam Carroll had a more encouraging weekend, finishing tenth and eleventh, he too was looking forward to Montreal, saying that the simulator work the team had done so far had been encouraging.

“From what we have seen on the simulator the Montreal circuit will be a fast race,” Carroll said.

“The finale will be one of the highlights of the season and we’ll have two more chances to wrap up our debut season on a high.”
