ZEG iCarros Jaguar Brazil Racing driver Sergio Jimenez has a seven point lead over Team Asia New Zealand’s Simon Evans after the first two races around the Berlin Templehof Airport.

While in the Pro-Am class, Fahad Algosaibi has opened up a 35 point lead over former class leader Yaqi Zhang with Adalberto Baptista, who is just a point further behind.

As the action got underway, it was the other Jaguar Brazil Racing of Caca Bueno who was setting the pace with the Brazilian 0.144 s ahead of his team-mate for an all Jaguar Brazil Racing front row lock-out.

When the racing got underway, Bueno was able to secure strong pace throughout and cruised to his first win of the season, beating Australian debutant Nick Foster who claimed second.

After Jimenez made contact with the China Racing driver, the Brazilian fell down to eighth place, but he was able to recover to finish fourth as his title rival Evans ensued that he beat Jimenez.

Jaguar VIP driver Oli Webb picked up fifth with Greg Segger and Alice Powell in sixth and seventh positions.

Fahad Algosaibi emerged as the clear winner in the Pro-Am class in eight with Takuma Aoki in ninth position.

But in the second race, Jimenez sought his revenge as the Brazilian secured his third victory of the season to pull a seven point advantage over Evans who finished second.

Meanwhile, Caca Bueno came home in third place after he missed the activation loop to deploy his attack mode which cost the Brazilian badly and he ultimately finished third.

The race out front saw the championship contenders going at it as both of them wanted to show that they were top dog after the first two races of the showdown.

Jimenez was able to pass Evans to grab the win after Evans suffered a power deficit after his attack mode expired in the dying stages of the race.

Oli Webb shone once again as the VIP driver claimed fourth with Foster finishing fifth.

The next round of the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy will be tomorrow 16.45 CET.
