Jefferies wants to make 2018 count

HARARE - Zimbabwe's motorsport sensation Axcil Jefferies is eager to build on the feats he accomplished last year to take on the 2018 season with a flourish.

Jefferies has teamed up with German Young Carrie Shriener following an inspired debut year where he won the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East Championship, clinched second in European Championship and second in the World Finals pro category.

He started the year by competing for the pro/am championship.

The championship almost ran away from the duo who suffered collisions from behind which dropped them back to last position where they fought hard through the fields to get on to the podium.

“I have had an amazing start to my 2018 campaign so far, qualifying on pole, breaking lap records, setting fastest race laps and ultimately winning the Championship again,” said Jefferies.

“Working with Carrie has been a pleasure and she has really progressed well and improved every lap she has driven. I am proud to have been part of her development as a driver and am sure she is destined for great things.

“Most importantly, I am very grateful for the opportunity and belief that Franz Konrad has had in me. We clicked straightaway as a team, my working relationship with the engineer and mechanics has been top class which made it even more of a pleasure to be part of this team. I am really excited and looking forward to a positive year ahead and will announce our plans soon.”

With five podiums and three first places Axcil and Carrie can go into their European Championships with confidence and push for greater achievements.

Meanwhile, Jefferies expressed gratitude for being awarded national colours, by the Zimbabwe Motor Sports Federation in recognition of his sporting achievements in motorsport.
