It was a reversal of fortunes on day two of the Pro-Driver series at the Moet Cup yesterday. Larry Ellison’s Oracle BMW Racing team won both of the races on San Francisco Bay and jumped to a 2-1 lead in the seven-race series.
Skipper Chris Dickson’s squad took full advantage of its local knowledge to win the first race of the day and give new recruit Gavin Brady his first win at the wheel for the American team.
The event continued to provide spectacular viewing opportunities with the best action coming up the final short beat to the finish, in the first race of the day, when Alinghi sailed in close to shore, tacking just yards off the breakwater at the Aquatic Park.
Racing for the MOËT CUP continues this afternoon, with two races scheduled, one in each of the Pro-Driver and Owner Driver series.
