Zimbabwean Pro Driver Axcil Jefferies And His GPX Racing Team Win Big At The 2021 Hankook 24H DUBAI


Axcil Jefferies, a Zimbabwean professional racing driver based in Dubai and team, GPX Racing has won after a commanding performance at the 2021 Hankook 24H Dubai Autodrome this weekend (15 - 17 January 2020)

“It’s fantastic and I’m so happy for the team,” Axcil Jefferies told radiolemans.com’s Ian Salvestrin.

“The guys worked so hard this whole week – they rebuilt the car two or three times – and they believed in us, so it’s great to reward them.”

“And of course all the drivers did an amazing job. We pushed early on to build up a gap and then went into safety management mode in the last two hours to make sure we could bring the car home.”

The GPX Racing Porsche 991 GT3 R (#36, Axcil Jefferies / Frederic Fatien / Mathieu Jaminet / Julien Andlauer / Alain Ferté) secured a lead it would never lose on lap 124, driving a faultless race thereafter to pull over three minutes clear of its nearest rivals at the chequered flag, completing 600 laps of the 5.39km Dubai Autodrome in the process.

Axcil is the Current Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East Champion, Vice European Champion and is occupying the role of a Senior Race Driver Instructor at Yas Marina Circuit. Whilst carrying out his instructing, along with various events for the worlds leading car manufacturers, Axcil is competing in the prestigious Lamborghini Super Trofeo Championship.

The GT Racing Team was founded in 2015 and quickly became one of the most influential teams in the region becoming the only second Emirati team to take outright victory at the 2021 Hankook 24H DUBAI
