Jaguar recently announced that it is returning to racing, with its entry into the FIA Formula E Championship starting in Fall 2016. Formula E is the world's first global single-seater championship for electric-powered cars, and will be in its third season when Jaguar joins the series.
Are racing car drivers an endangered species? If so, then Roborace could be the beginning of the end. Slated to kick off next year, this new racing championship will pit driverless electric cars against each other in a round-the-world series. The aim is to provide a competitive platform for the autonomous driving technology that is being developed by automotive and tech firms, as well as universities.
