Bird brings it home for Jaguar with comeback victory in New York City

Jaguar Racing’s Sam Bird makes it a fairytale of New York at the ABB New York City E-Prix Round 11, bouncing back from a difficult Saturday to take a dominant lights-to-flag victory to jump to the top of the Drivers’ standings. Bird was able to retain his lead, but Cassidy moved by Evans into second. A few laps later, Bird and Cassidy both jumped for their ATTACK MODE. With Cassidy having a power advantage, the Envision Virgin Racing rookie made his move on Evans to take second, sweeping round the outside before braking for Turn 6. With that place lost, Evans took his second and final ATTACK MODE to mount a challenge on Cassidy. With that perfectly timed ATTACK MODE, Evans put in the fastest lap to leap up to the rear diffuser of Cassidy and dived up the inside for second at the Turn 10 hairpin. With his second win for 2020/21, Bird heads to his home race in London in the lead of the Drivers’ standings.
