Bueno victorious in Berlin opener

Caca Bueno dominated the opening Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy race in Berlin to take his first win of the season.

Bueno started from pole and got a good start while team-mate Sergio Jimenez was forced to defend against championship newcomer Nick Foster.

Foster tried multiple times to go around the outside of Jimenez on the opening lap and was forced into the wall by the Team Jaguar Brazil driver, but managed to continue. He found a way past Jimenez, bringing Simon Evans with him past the front row started.

Foster was able to close the gap to Bueno and was putting pressure on the race leader early in the race, but couldn’t keep the pace. He had damage to the rear of his Jaguar China Racing run car which appeared to hamper him, but he was able to keep racing.

Jimenez took Attack Mode as soon as he was passed and spent a few laps climbing back up through the order before closing in on Evans. The pair swapped positions as they each took the Attack Mode but it was Evans on top after the final run of extra energy.

In the closing stages of the race, Evans began to close the gap to Foster ahead, but ran out of laps before he could make a move.

Jimenez came home fourth, but was sent the stewards for impeding anther driver.

VIP driver Ollie Webb took fifth ahead of Alice Powell and Greg Segers.

Fahad Algosaibi moves into the lead of the Pro-Am class with a class victory, finishing eighth overall.

Takuma Aoki, Adalberto Baptista and Paul Spooner completed the order.
