Jaguar lent an all-electric I-PACE to be used in the 2018 Invictus Games Sydney.
One of the challenges was a water slalom, where drivers had to navigate between color coded gates. This YouTube video shows the I-Pace splashing into the course. Notice that the water level is just below the door sills – perhaps on purpose to prevent water from coming inside the cockpit.
The competition comprised three different challenges to test; competitor driver skills, navigational ability, plus observation and teamwork to determine the winning nation.
The canoe slalom was held in a bespoke water tank full of colour coded gates, followed by a precision zone and a smart cones event.
Teamwork and accuracy is more important than speed in the event that reflects the importance of driving across the armed forces.
