Axcil & Team Dominate Round 1 of The European Championship
Posted on: April 24, 2017
Axcils European Championship campaign could not have started off better than it did in Monza in Italy for the 1st round of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Championship.
From practice on Friday; Axcil continued where he left off in The Middle East Championship after winning 5 races in a row and set the Fastest time around The Iconic Monza Circuit setting purple sector times. Several of the more experienced drivers in the championship took to the track to try and out do Axcils time of 1:47:669 but fell short by 0.260 sec leaving Jefferies confident for Qualifying and the races.
True to form, on Saturday Axcil produced a stunning performance to qualify 3rd overall after encountering traffic and a Red flag during qualifying.
In Race one Axcil and his team mate Rik Breakers won in dominant fashion after building up a 4 second lead which was short lived after a safety car. However as soon as the safety car pitted Axcil banged in several fast laps after laps to open up another gap to second place and win by over 3 seconds to Italian and Canadian pairing of Loris Spinelli and Mark Grinier.
Race two on Sunday saw Axcil and Rik take their seventh podium on the trot finishing in a respectable 2nd place after Axcil had to take avoiding action from a spinning and crashing car in front of him through the famous Ascari sector in Monza.
Next Round is scheduled for Silverstone 13th to 15th May.
