Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has joined the legendary British racing team Jaguar Racing as title partner in the run-up to the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship 2021/22. The team will be known as Jaguar TCS Racing.
During this multi-year partnership, TCS and Jaguar will create a platform that will drive research and innovation while working towards advanced concepts and electric vehicle technologies. The Formula E championship is a single-seat motorsport championship for electric cars.
TCS will leverage its technology transformation expertise and experience working with leading players in the EV value chain to help Jaguar TCS Racing become a catalyst for electrification and push for low carbon and sustainable mobility. The partnership envisions the creative use of data and insights from the racetrack to shape the broader growth, development and transformation of the entire electric vehicle ecosystem.
Rajesh Gopinathan, CEO & MD, TCS: “We are pleased to expand our partnership with Jaguar Land Rover and to join forces as Jaguar TCS Racing. As the world races towards electrification, this collaboration will pave the way for the adoption of advanced technologies, the use of cleaner energy and the development of novel business models. “
Our efforts will go beyond business to have a lasting impact on people, communities and the planet. “
Thierry Bolloré, CEO Jaguar Land Rover, Chairman JLR Motorsport: “Motorsport is the ultimate challenge and to be successful in this highly competitive field you have to excel in all areas. Technology, innovation, agility, unity and teamwork are important findings that we can implement throughout the company and throughout the group. I recognize these advantages and want to ensure that our future motorsport activity structure is geared towards maximum success. “
With just 87 days to go to the start of the new season, Jaguar TCS Racing is focused on refining the race car in the team’s Formula E history, including revisions in several software areas to improve energy management and make the race car faster and more efficient. The team also invested time in understanding and simulating the new qualifying system and practicing the garage pit stops that will become a key feature of the first 10 minutes of the new format.
