The Nurburgring is the testing ground for new performance models and the E-Pace is no different. Makes sens for Jaguar to test the mule there and it's been caught on camera. Now we just need to wait for someone to camp out at the track and record it in action.

Cameras can make a big difference in how things are percieved and this is no different especailly since its a moving object and the camera has to move with it. You can make a car going 200 MPH look still or even something moving at 5MPH look like 200MPH

The E-Pace did hit the apexes in most turns, guess the wider one where the car when out of line at around 2:24 was due to driver error. I won't be throwing the E-Pace around a track, but it's good to know that we can do some spirited driving around mountain roads without the fear of launching off the side.

Tire choice is definitely a big thing and it could probably change a variety of times that we see it out on the tracks. There's that and they don't really put just anyone behind the seat of these things and say "go drive it around the ring"

With how increasingly complicated a car's ECU is getting, slight tweaks and copious amounts of track testing are needed and the E-Pace is no different.
There's a lot of testing in virtual setups and simulations since its often easier to replicate scenarios than to find them for a lot of car makers. With todays technology that has gotten even more intense than ever before. Track testing is just a fraction of all testing.

I agree for sure. Track testing is merely one portion, and a small portion at that, of what vehicles endure in order to get ironed out and figured out. Cars are left running on the dyno for long periods of time. They're put through various simulations. There are way too many tests that we wouldn't be able to list.
