In 2023, Jaguar Hopes to See Hyderabad on The Formula E Calendar

The all-electric championship signed a letter of intent with the state of Telengana for a race in the city’s south-eastern region this week.

According to team boss James Barclay, a proposed Formula E round in Hyderabad next year would be a dream come true for Tata-owned Jaguar and would further boost the sport in India.

Since the last Formula One race in 2013, India has not hosted a world championship motorsport event.

However, the sport has stated that more than 20 cities have expressed interest in hosting a round in season nine, when the next generation of cars will be introduced.

“We’re very excited about Hyderabad,” Barclay said in a video conference ahead of season eight, which kicks off in Saudi Arabia on January with a pair of night races.

“India is a strategically important market for us, as well as a market with a large following.”

“We’ve wanted to have a race there for a long time, and it’s just unlocking that formula to make a race possible, with the right promoter to fund, put in place, and deliver it well.”

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is the Formula E team’s title sponsor. Jaguar is owned by Tata Motors of India. Mahindra, an Indian manufacturer, is also competing in the championship.

From 2011 to 2013, Formula One raced at the Buddh circuit near New Delhi.

“I’m crossing my fingers that the team in Hyderabad organising the race can pull it off,” Barclay said.

Season eight of Formula E will feature 16 races, the most ever, with new rounds in Indonesia (Jakarta), Canada (Vancouver), and South Korea (Seoul).

The rules have been changed to include a new qualifying format that includes head-to-head knockout duels from the quarter-finals to the final pair competing for pole position.
