RACE NOTES & QUOTES
KATHERINE LEGGE, No. 3 Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY entry: “It was the best we could hope for after a disappointing weekend. It was very tricky to pass without hitting anybody so I tried to stay clean. We earned some solid points and salvaged a top three rank in the points and will try to learn from this one and move on to the next. It was not the best weekend but if it’s the worst one, then we’ll be happy.”
FAST FACTS: Legge qualified eighth and started seventh after a car ahead served a grid penalty from Hong Kong. On Lap 3 of the race, she passed Alesayi for sixth. Tao Wang brought out a red flag for over 10 minutes of the 25 minute plus one lap race and once it was restarted with a little over six minutes to go, Legge held her position and was unable to attempt a pass. She finished sixth in her fourth Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY race and was promoted to fifth after Sellers’ entry was disqualified. She competed in the first two Formula E races with Amlin Aguri in the 2014/2015 season.… Legge is currently ranked second in series standings with 48 points to leader Simon Evans’ 49.
BRYAN SELLERS, No. 6 Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY entry: “I’m extremely disappointed with the ruling on our technical infraction, however rules are in place to govern a series and no matter how small the infraction may be it is still an infraction. I can assure you this was not something intentional, and was an oversight. This is something we will address, and something we will learn from. We will work hard and make sure we are prepared for Rome, and do our best to get a good result. This will only motivate us even more to come back stronger.”
FAST FACTS: Sellers qualified third and maintained the position through the race which included a 10-minute stoppage for a red flag after Tao Wang made contact. It would have been his fourth consecutive podium finish in the series but he was disqualified after the race due to a technical infraction. In the first three rounds, Sellers finished third (Riyadh), second (Mexico City) and became the first American to win an electric car race in Hong Kong. He is the reigning IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GTD champion… Sellers would have taken the series point standing lead with third place but dropped to third with his pre-race tally of 46 points.
