Caca Bueno led a Jaguar Brazil Racing 1-2 sweep in Saturday’s Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series race on the streets of Monaco.
The Brazilian, who picked up his second victory of the season, survived a frantic start to the 25-minute plus one-lap scheduled race, which was red-flagged on the opening lap for an accident from the No. 3 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Jaguar of Katherine Legge.
Once racing action resumed with 20 minutes to go, Bueno held his advantage over teammate Sergio Jimenez, taking the win by 0.329 seconds over his countryman.
It marked the first 1-2 sweep for the Brazilian team and its third win in the last four races between the duo.
Paris winner Bryan Sellers saw his championship lead reduced to a single point over Jimenez with a third place result in the No. 6 RLL Jaguar, which had opening corner contact with TWR Techeetah’s Stefan Rzadzinski while battling for third.
Rzadzinski then got into Legge in the next corner, triggering a safety car, which turned into the red flag to retrieve her damaged Jaguar.
Simon Evans came home fourth in the Team Asia New Zealand entry, with Yaqi Zhang picking up Pro-Am class honors after starting 10th overall on the grid.
Zhang’s Jaguar China Racing entry was classified fifth overall, ahead of the class pole-sitting Saudi Racing Jaguar of Bandar Alesay in sixth.
Anthony Belitose, in the Jaguar VIP Guest car, came home seventh, meanwhile, with Rzadzinski finishing two laps down in 10th after rejoining following suspension damage from his opening lap incidents.
