The two also won the first round event at Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi from Februaruary 9 to 11.
Courtesy of their two victories, Jefferies and Breukers now have a one point lead over Huracan driven by young female German driver Carries Shreiner and American Richard Goddard.
The third and last round will take place in Dubai at the beginning of March although the track layout will be different. As it stands 22-year Jefferies has an excellent shot to at the Lamborghini Trofeo Middle East.
Jefferies had this to say:
Yesterday was certainly not a good day, after the contact at the first corner, but today we definitely happy. Rik did an amazing stint and regarding me I tried to keep a steady and fast pace, which allowed us to win.
