The 2020 Berlin eTrophy Race 3, formally known as the 2020 Berlin Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy Series Race 3, was the sixth race of the 2019/20 Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy Series, staged at the Tempelhofring in Berlin, Brandenburg, Germany, on 8 August 2020.[1] The race, which was the first of three staged on the standard Tempelhofring layout, would see Sérgio Jimenez sweep to his fourth win of the campaign.[2]

Qualifying would see Sérgio Jimenez secure pole position after a session long fight with Simon Evans, denying his main title rival the bonus point by 0.039s.[3] Behind would be all the other Pro class entries down to eighth, which was instead occupied by Pro-Am pole sitter Fahad Algosaibi, while Abbie Eaton secured ninth in the Guest car.[3]

It was a clean start throughout the field when the race began, with Jimenez easing off the line to claim the lead, while Evans was on the wrong side to realistically challenge.[2] Instead, Evans would lose second to a fast starting Nick Foster through the sweeping first corner, as behind Algosaibi got ahead of Takuma Aoki.[2]

Foster would go on the offensive throughout the opening tour, with the Australian racer harassing Jimenez for the lead.[2] Foster subsequently sent the #9 car lunging down the inside of Jimenez for the lead at the end of the opening tour, before drawing past the #10 car on the exit to take control of the race.[2]

With that Foster was away to try and build a lead, although Jimenez would remain glued to his tail as the top five ran nose-to-tail.[2] As a result the fight became a tactical one with the use of Attack Mode, with Evans the first to try and use the boost, but somehow managed to miss the activation zone.[2]

A few laps later and Foster made the same mistake trying to arm the boost, costing him the lead as Jimenez led Cacá Bueno past the #9 car as Foster drove off line to try and activate AM.[2] Foster instantly tried to make amends by attacking Bueno into turn seven, but was repulsed, before clumsily hitting the left-rear as they turned into turn six on the following tour.[2]

That move allowed Evans to move back ahead of Foster, while Jimenez was able to build a lead big enough for him to arm AM for the second time without losing the lead.[2] Foster, meanwhile, would get into a fight with Alice Powell for fourth in the closing stages, which would end with the British racer getting turned into the barriers exiting turn nine after the two made contact.[2]

With that the race was run, with Jimenez managing his lead well to secure a dominant fourth victory of the campaign, with teammate Bueno in second.[2] Evans was next up ahead of Segers, Algosaibi took the Pro-Am honours in sixth, while Eaton secured eighth in the Guest car.[2]

Background

Two days after the previous race the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy field would find themselves preparing for the first of three races around the Tempelhofring, which had now been restored to its usual anti-clockwise format.[1] That would be the only major change ahead of the second set of races in Berlin, with Abbie Eaton taking over the #1 Guest car from Oliver Webb as the only driver change.[4]

Halfway Home

Victory for Sérgio Jimenez saw the Brazilian racer's lead in the Championship grow to seven points with half the season completed, Simon Evans having just kept pace with his second place in Berlin. Behind, Cacá Bueno had overhauled Alice Powell to secure third, moving two ahead of the British racer, while Powell herself was sixteen ahead of Nick Foster in fifth.

In the Pro-Am field a third straight victory for Fahad Algosaibi had left the Saudi Arabian racer in command of the title hunt, 35 points clear of his closest challenger. That challenger was the absent Yaqi Zhang, who was the only other winner in Pro-Am in 2019/20, who was still a point ahead of Adalberto Baptista in third, the next highest placed active driver. Chao Sun was next up in fourth, while Paul Spooner rounded out the top five, level with the Chinese racer.

Standings

Sérgio Jimenez would extend his Pro Championship lead to seventeen points after the sixth race of the season, with the Brazilian racer having become the first driver to break through the 100 point barrier. Simon Evans was still in contention in second, while Cacá Bueno was still within mathematical reach in third on 56 points. Alice Powell was next up ahead of Nick Foster, while Takuma Aoki had remained ahead of Gregory Segers, who had overhauled Mário Haberfeld.

In Pro-Am Fahad Algosaibi was in complete control of the Championship hunt, the Saudi Arabian racer 46 points clear as he fell just two points shy of the 100 point mark after six races. Adalberto Baptista, meanwhile, had climbed to second, and would need at least two wins without Algosaibi scoring, to get on terms with Algosaibi out front. Behind, Yaqi Zhang was still in third despite not racing in Berlin, although Paul Spooner had closed to within a point of the Chinese racer.
