The American circuit covers 3.19km and 12 turns which promises wheel-to-wheel action and exhilarating overtakes. A setting fit for a dramatic race, with stunning views of Mount Hood and Portland’s abundance of green spaces, this unique city adds to an incredible list of destinations in the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
In the last round of the World Championship, Jaguar TCS Racing came away with crucial podium points for Mitch Evans, who now sits fourth in the drivers’ standings, with teammate Sam Bird currently in eighth place. Combined, Jaguar TCS Racing sit third in the team standings’, just 43 points behind Porsche, who currently hold the top spot. With the strong competition witnessed in Formula E so far this season, it is all to play for in the final rounds.
Everyone at Jaguar TCS Racing is looking forward to being back in the United States and racing on US soil in what will be our final new circuit of the season. Racing in Portland will bring the thrill of Formula E to a new audience, and we embrace the challenges and opportunities that come with this high-speed and technical track. Coming into the final rounds of the 2023 Season, we understand what we need to deliver to stay in the championship fight. Naturally teams will start to feel some pressure and intensity rise at this stage, instead we are focused on our approach and strategy and the objective which is to execute the best performance that we can.
Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal
I was pleased to come away from Jakarta with a podium and some points, and hope to keep building momentum in Portland as we reach the final three locations. I’m looking forward to the new track, it’s well-known in American motorsport categories so it will be great to bring Formula E to this circuit for the first time. I can’t wait to get out there and keep my sights on the top spot!
Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #9
Portland is a new circuit for Formula E, featuring 3.1km and 12 corners, it promises to be a super high-speed track. It features two of the longest straights we’ve had on this season’s calendar, which will require our drivers to hit that breaking point correctly. Turns four to six offer corner-to-corner action, so that will be a really exciting part of the lap. Compared to the normal street surfaces we’re used to, Portland International Raceway provides a good, flat surface to race on. Expect to see lots of overtakes, lots of slipstreams, and a really tactical race.
