MEXICO CITY – Katherine Legge conquered round two of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series on Saturday at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez.

Legge started on the pole with her teammate from Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, Bryan Sellers, alongside her in second. Legge took the lead the moment the race began and never relinquished it, leading Sellers to the checkered flag.

 

“I have been looking forward to getting back in the car ever since Ad Diriyah; and to come away with a podium finish in Mexico is amazing and testament to the hard work the team have put into the car this week,” said Legge. “There were a lot of learnings from round one, and to put these into play in Mexico is really rewarding. Hong Kong cannot come soon enough, and I hope to take the momentum from this race into the rest of the season.”

Sérgio Jimenez completed the podium for Jaguar Brazil Racing after taking advantage of a collision at the chicane that forced Mexican VIP driver Salvador Durán to retire after hitting Caca Bueno’s Jaguar I-PACE.

Kiwi driver Simon Evans had to avoid the accident, which pushed him down the order. Bander Alesayi took the Pro-Am class victory after finishing fifth overall.

The finish:

Katherine Legge, Bryan Sellers, Sérgio Jimenez, Cacá Bueno, Bandar Alesayi, Simon Evans, Ahmed Bin Khanen, Lin Qi, Célia Martin, Stefan Rzadzinski, Yaqi Zhang, Salvador Duran.
