Simon Evans is a race car driver from Auckland, New Zealand, born November 12 1990.
In 2019 he is driving in the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series.

He has is also the New Zealand V8 SuperTourer champion. Simon has a proud racing heritage including his father Owen Evans, and little brother Formula E Driver Mitch Evans.

Simon grew up in Aucklandf New Zealand and started, as most young kiwis do, in Go Karts.
He progressed to Formula Fords but, unlike his younger brother Mitch, moved to tin tops where he had great success in a Holden V8 Super Tourer.

In 2012, the all-new V8SuperTourer category was launched and Simon secured an endurance drive with Kayne Scott for Farmer Racing Services. The pair achieved a podium at the Pukekohe 500. 

In 2013, Evans took over Scott's entry and raced the full season. Evans would finish 16th overall, with only a single podium over the season. 
In 2014, Evans claimed seven podium finishes and finished runner up behind four-time Bathurst 1000 winner, Greg Murphy. Evans would then win what would prove to be the final season for the V8SuperTourer category. Achieving nine wins from twelve races, it was a dominant display, and an eventual precursor for the NZ Touring Car Championship.

Following this season, Evans signed with Super Black Racing to contend the V8 Supercar Dunlop Series for 2015. Whilst Evans achieved modest results in his first full-time season overseas, it wasn't enough to secure him a drive for the following season. 
Other international campaigns included a guest drive in the Audi Sport TT Cup event at the Nürburgring in 2016, as well as a full-season stint in the Chinese-based FRD LMP3 Series.

After the V8SuperTourer category merged with the New Zealand V8s, the NZ Touring Car Championship was born. Evans would contend the next two championships, with performances equally as dominant as what was demonstrated in the final V8SuperTourers season. 

Simon Evans would go on to win 23 out of the 38 races he contended, and claim both championships before leaving the category in 2017.

In 2018, Evans joined Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy, a closed-wheel feeder series to Formula E, where his brother Mitch also races for the Jaguar team. He won his first race in Saudi Arabia, racing at the same weekend as Formula E series. The series continues into 2019.
