Katherine Legge led the entirety of Saturday afternoon’s Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY race at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in a 1-2 finish for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.

The Brit started the second-ever I-PACE eTROPHY race from pole and remained out front for the full 25-minute and one lap race in the Mexican capital.

She finished 0.404 seconds ahead of her RLL teammate Bryan Sellers, and while the pair remained close for the full race, Sellers was unable to make any serious attempts for the lead.

The pair of Jaguar Brazil Racing cars finished third and fourth, with Sergio Jimenez ahead of Caca Bueno.

The race’s main action came by way of a collision at the chicane which forced VIP driver Salvador Duran to retire ahead hitting Bueno’s car.

The incident also caused Simon Evans, who came to Mexico as points leader after winning in Ad Diriyah, off track to avoid the accident, pushing him down the order.

Bandar Alesayi was also caught up in the accident, hitting Bueno afterwards, but the Saudi Racing driver came back to claim the Pro-Am class victory from fifth overall.

Alesayi had followed his teammate and countryman Ahmed Bin Khanen for several laps but he and Evans both managed to make their way through when Bin Khanen slowed, likely from damage also picked up in the chicane incident.

RESULTS: Mexico City

    Good for her. But typically these one make series attract a bunch of well heeled amateurs long on money and short on skill so I’m not sure this is much of a test given her background.

    Yeah 12 cars and 33% aren’t classified. Sellers and Legge eh too early to tell either way.
