Kevin Siggy extends his lead in the Challenge Grid with a lights-to-flag victory in Round 5 of the ABB Formula E Race at Home Challenge in support of UNICEF.
The Challenge Grid has seen the usual suspects of Kevin Siggy, Lucas Mueller, Petar Brljak and company controlling Qualifying. Despite there being a new track in the form of Berlin Tempelhof and a new Qualifying format seeing the top guys going out last, it was still the same names topping the timesheets.
Challenge Grid leader Kevin Siggy secured Pole with a blazing 1:09.072 lap, second and third on the grid were within .200 of the pole position time, with Peyo Peev lining up alongside his sim racing rival and Petar Brljak just behind the front row in third. Round 4 winner Lucas Mueller rounded out the top five.
The sim racers got off to clean start from the lights, with Poleman Siggy holding his lead into Turn 1, despite the best efforts from Peev and Brljak attempting to barge pass the leader, however, Brljak was able to capitalise on the move and take second from Peev.
In a carbon copy of his Round 3 win, Siggy immediately set about opening a gap between himself and second position, pushing out a lead of 1.4 seconds.
Coming into the halfway point of the race, the sim racers demonstrated some clean racing throughout the field, as Siggy continued to maintain a one-second lead over Brljak in 2nd position.
In the battle for third position, Mueller was all over the wheel-tracks of Peev, the young German finally made a hard move barging past the Bulgarian into the final turn before out-braking Peev into Turn 1.
Brljak continued to put in his all to close the gap to Siggy, getting within seven-tenths of the race leader in the closing stages of the race, but it wasn’t enough as the Slovenian kept his cool to win his second race of the ABB Formula E Race at Home Challenge.
In dominating form, Siggy took a lights-to-flag victory to extend his lead in the standings. Despite closing the gap towards the end, Brljak was unable to get close enough to make a move and ended up in second. Mueller rounded out the podium in third.
