Partnership with Panasonic Jaguar Racing
GKN is partnering with the PJR team to bring our electrification expertise and rich motorsport heritage back to the racetrack
The Panasonic Jaguar Racing team made their debut in October 2016 in Season 3 of the FIA Formula E championship.
As the team enters its second year of racing, they hope to build on early success and the huge amount of experience gained from a competitive year on the track. As an Official Partner of Panasonic Jaguar Racing, GKN will be developing technology over the next three seasons of the championship.
GKN is developing cutting-edge technology and is working closely with Panasonic Jaguar Racing to make the I-TYPE 2 go faster.
GKN has a wealth of experience and expertise gained across aerospace and automotive industries. We will apply this knowledge to improve the performance of the I-TYPE 2 and have identified four key workstreams: driveshafts, the differential, lightweight pump systems and the transmission. In addition, a cross-divisional additive manufacturing team is working to provide lightweight additive manufactured components, a key competency of GKN.
