Vector Racing, winners of the 2014 and 2015 Cowes Torquay Cowes races have officially announced today that they will partner with Jaguar Cars for the 2018 season.
The team will be known as Jaguar Vector Racing and will attempt to break 12 speed and endurance UIM World Records as well as competing in the recently announced 2018 Offshore Championship in Britain next year.
Jaguar returned to motorsport in October 2016, becoming the first premium manufacturer to join the all-electric FIA Formula E street-racing series.
Using the technology and information accrued from Formula E, Jaguar and Vector will also work together on a series of innovative electric water World Record attempts.
Mal Crease, CEO of Vector, said:
The Vector team is very proud to be aligning with a great British brand like Jaguar, and to be joining such a technically pioneering partnership which will push the boundaries of performance and technical excellence.
Mark Cameron, Director of Experiential Marketing, Jaguar Land Rover, said:
Jaguar is a performance brand and Vector are the epitome of power and performance on the water.
We have some very exciting plans for Jaguar Racing especially as we move towards an electric future as we continue our mission ‘Race to Innovate’.
