Harry Tincknell will conduct his second test with Panasonic Jaguar Racing in the rookie test following next weekend’s Marrakesh E-Prix.
As first reported by e-racing365 earlier this week, Haas Formula 1 reserve Pietro Fittipaldi will also drive the Jaguar I-Type 3 during the one-day test on Jan. 13.
Tincknell first tested for Jaguar at Donington Park in 2016 when the team was evaluating race drivers ahead of its Formula E debut that year.
The 27-year-old Englishman, who currently races for the Ford and Mazda factory sports car programs, will run through a full test schedule with the British manufacturer in Morocco.
“Jaguar gave me my first laps in a Formula E car and I’m very grateful to be testing the new Generation 2 car with them,” said Tincknell, who also holds a simulator role with the NIO Formula E team.
“It is a great opportunity for me and I hope to use my previous Formula E experience to do the best job possible.
“With in-season testing being limited, I really want to maximize the day for the team and contribute to the development of the Jaguar I-TYPE 3 after its strong double points finish to start season five with Mitch [Evans] and Nelson [Piquet Jr].”
Panasonic Jaguar Racing director James Barclay welcomed back Tinkcnell and Fittipaldi, who featured in last year’s Marrakesh session, to the team’s rookie test program.
“Pietro did a great job last year for us in Marrakesh so was an obvious choice,” he said.
“Harry is no stranger to the team having driven the Jaguar I-TYPE 1 back in Donington in August 2016.
“We have a full test programme for both drivers which is crucial in the ongoing development of the Jaguar I-TYPE 3.”
