Jamie Constable doubles up by cruising to victory in the second Masters Endurance Legends race at the Circuit of the Americas!
Race 1 victor Constable opened a lead at the rolling start and responded to early pressure by blitzing the field with a spate of fastest laps.
A Safety Car period, caused by Charles DiPasquale spinning and stalling the Elan DP02 at Turn 11, threatened Constable’s position but he made his mandatory pit stop and retained a comfortable advantage.
Constable ticked off the laps after the Safety Car phase to chalk up his second win of the weekend by over half a minute.
While Constable controlled proceedings there was some fierce competition for the remaining leading positions.
Dante Tornello was one of the big movers early on, climbing from fourth to second in as many laps, though relinquished positions during the Safety Car period and occupied only seventh.
Tornello set about closing in on his rivals and made it up to fourth spot before a spin through the Turn 11 hairpin left him back down in seventh, where he remained.
One of the highlights of the race was a fierce scrap between George Kurtz, Alexander Berg and James Sofronas, in which the trio at one stage ran three abreast into the hairpin – and all emerged unscathed.
Berg eventually seized the initiative to finish runner-up to the dominant Constable, while Travis Engen made up two positions from the start to climb onto the podium in third place.
Mirco Schultis suffered two spins during the race but still reached the chequered flag in fourth, ahead of Kurtz and Sofronas, with Tornello seventh after his late setback.
Danny Baker had a wild moment through the Turn 19 but recovered to grab eighth place, with Cal Meeker and Tim Day Jnr recovering from near the back of the grid following Race 1 issues to round out the top 10.
