Jaguar TCS were favourites to win the Saturday Race with Nick Evans starting in pole though things went south for the team when an attempted overtake by Sam Bird saw the two teammates collide on the track forcing both to retire. The drama though did not end there with eventual race winner Vergne fighting off a hard-pressing Evnsion Racing's Nick Cassidy in the closing laps including completing the final lap with just 1 per cent charge.
