Shortly after our Q&A with him Friday, K-PAX McLaren 650S GT3 driver Kévin Estre ran away with the win for Race 2 of the Pirelli World Challenge race, beating the next fastest GT car by half a second. Estre led every single lap of the race, showing everyone why he's one of McLaren GT's factory drivers.
A mid-race caution flag allowed competitors to briefly catch up to Estre after he'd taken the lead on the first corner of the first lap of the race, but it didn't even matter. Estre consistently ran four to five seconds a lap faster than the rest of the field and won with a 30.344 second lead.
Besides his commanding performance in the rain Sunday, Estre finished fourth during Race 1 of the weekend. Not bad for the car's very first appearance in a race in the United States. Not bad at all.
We may not have tagged his car with a sticker, but he did touch our lucky bunny. The Jalopnik bump lives!
