Dubai Autodrome, February 25, 2018.
Axcil Jefferies partnered up with Konrad Motorsport to defend the Lamborghini Middle East Championship. In the opening two rounds of the the Championship, Jefferies continued where he left off from 2017 where he won all races and clinched the Championship. Having spent a year behind the wheel Axcil knew and felt he would be in a much stronger position this year.
True to form he dominated the first round of the Championship in Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi by being fastest overall in all Practice sessions, Qualifying and setting fastest laps during the races!! Qualifying saw the Young Zimbabwean driver smash the lap record by nearly a second and out qualify all opposition by 0.5 of a second. Axcil then started Race 1 from Pole and was able to build a lead of 5 seconds to P2 before handing the Car to his new team mate for 2018 Carrie Schreiner who drove an exceptional stint to finish 2nd overall and 1st in Class for the duo.
Round 2 was held in Dubai at the Dubai Autodrome where Axcil once again showed his class by setting fastest lap times during the races and hauling the Konrad Motorsport Lamborghini Huracan to P2 overall and 1st in Class again.
" I really feel at home within the Konrad Motorsport team and we clicked and understood each other straight away. I work well with the engineer Marius Avarg and we have managed to set the car up very well. With 50 years of top level racing under his belt, I can certainly learn alot from Franz."
"We go into the final rounds next week and I feel confident that Carrie and myself can clinch the title all being well. We certainly have the pace and tools to do it!"
