Constable doubles up with 2nd Masters Endurance Legends victory at Circuit of the Americas!
Jamie Constable (Pescarolo LMP1) made it back-to-back victories as he secured top honours in the second Masters Endurance Legends race of the weekend in support of the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas.
Constable, who claimed the win in Saturday’s first race – held in support of Formula 1’s United States Grand Prix – faced early pressure from Craig Bennett (Lola B12/80), falling two seconds behind at one stage.
But Constable quickly re-grouped and overhauled his rival before pulling clear, ensuring his Pescarolo LMP1 machine greeted the chequered flag first for the second time in two days.
Bennett’s prospects of another podium unravelled when he was forced out of the race with a broken axle, facilitating Saturday runner-up Claude Malette’s (Rebellion Lola Toyota) rise to another second place.
Constable and Lola Toyota Rebellion driver Malette were joined on the rostrum by Grid 3/Prototype class winner Travis Engen, who avoided trouble in his Audi R8 LMP1.
Oreca LMP 09 representatives Tommy Dreelan and Aaron Scott classified fourth overall, ahead of Grid 1/C1 class victor Cal Meeker, aboard a Spice GTP.
James Davison was second in class in Grid 3/Prototype, while Grid 2/Prototype was led by Mark Brannon in the Riley and Scott MK3C.
The lead GT car was Grid 4 representative Matthew Brabham as he finished comfortably clear of James Sofronas, replicating their respective positions from the opening race.
