Bryan Sellers scored his first Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY win on Sunday, leading a 1-2 sweep for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing in Hong Kong.

The American led teammate Katherine Legge by 3.369 seconds at the line, taking the championship lead after the third round of the season.

A late-race pass for the final podium position caused drama on the run down to the finish line, with Sergio Jimenez coming through to finish third.

It resulted in the Brazilian pushing Simon Evans out of the way, with the Team Asia New Zealand driver heavily shunting the barrier.

Caca Bueno started the race from pole position but lost the lead when he went too deep into Turn 1 midway through the race.

He ended up dropping down to sixth position as he waited for a gap in the traffic to reverse and rejoin the track, and eventually finished fifth.

Jaguar VIP driver Darryl O’Young put on a strong performance in his first I-PACE eTROPHY race, running in the lead battle for much of the race.

He crossed the line sixth after being passed by both Jimenez and Bueno following a restart, but had been running fourth for several laps.

Yaqi Zhang scored his first Pro-Am class win from seventh overall, denying Bandar Alesayi from continuing his sweep of the season.

The Saudi Racing driver finished 45 seconds down on Zhang, ahead of early class leader Celia Martin in third.

There were two short Full Course Yellow periods, the first for debris on the opening lap, and a second one to retrieve Qi Lin’s car.

RESULTS: Hong Kong
