Formula E Kiwis Evans and Cassidy Dominate in Monte Carlo

    The British GT Championship witnessed a thrilling display of dominance by the two New Zealand drivers, Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy, in the recent Monte Carlo E-Prix. Evans, driving for Jaguar TCS Racing, secured a convincing victory, crossing the finish line nearly a second ahead of his teammate Cassidy.

    Kiwi Duo Demonstrate Impressive Pace

    Evans had showcased impressive pace throughout the practice sessions on Saturday, but a misstep in the qualifying semi-final duels meant he and Cassidy lined up on the second row of the grid. Nonetheless, the Kiwi duo wasted no time in asserting their dominance on the tight confines of the street circuit.

    “Polesitter Pascal Wehrlein of Porsche initially maintained his lead at the start, but Evans quickly moved ahead of Cassidy, with the pair running side-by-side.”

    Jaguar’s Strategic Masterplan

    The turning point came when Jaguar implemented its strategic masterplan, with Cassidy backing up the pack to allow Evans to take both his Attack Modes on laps 11 and 13, each time retaining the lead. Thereafter, the Jaguar duo’s 1-2 finish looked assured, and Evans duly claimed his first Formula E victory since last year’s London E-Prix.

    Podium Finish for Vandoorne and Vergne

    Stoffel Vandoorne of DS Penske completed the podium, holding off his teammate Jean-Eric Vergne, while Wehrlein finished fifth to retain the championship lead.

    Kiwi Dominance Captivates British GT Enthusiasts

    The thrilling display of teamwork and strategic execution by the Kiwi duo undoubtedly captivated the British GT enthusiasts, solidifying Jaguar’s position as a force to be reckoned with in the highly competitive Formula E championship.
