Xavier Maassen is a talented racedriver from Maastricht, the Netherlands. This fast, ambitious driver made his dream a reality; being a professional racedriver competing and winning the biggest races and championships in the world of GT racing.

After a successful debut in karting, Xavier started his motorsport career in Formula Ford. He won the Belgium Championship twice and he was Vice-Benelux Champion. Xavier stepped up to the well known Formula Renault 2.0. With 5 victories, 16 podiums, 6 pole-positions and 5 fastest laps, he became Dutch vice-champion, finished in the top 10 in the European Championship and ended 3rd in the North-European Championship.
After one season in the World Series by Renault, Xavier changed his focus to GT endurance racing. With a great debut season in the FIA GT Championship and a extraordinary performance in the 24 hours of Le Mans, where he finished second in the LM GT1, Xavier continued his rise in international motorsport. After winning the 24 hours of Zolder with the Audi team WRT, he gained more experience in the 24 hours of Le Mans, Spa, Zolder and Nürburgring over the years.
His succes in the Blancpain Endurance Series, with a win at the Nurburgring and a podium in the championship gave him the status as a quick, reliable professional driver. He continued his path of success, winning the 2014 and 2017 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux, being vice-champion in Belgian GT Championship, winning the 12 Hours of Abu Dhabi and numerous podiums in the 24h Series. His succes also earned him a debut for AAI Motorsport in the Asian Le Mans Series.
Next to his motorsport adventures, Xavier spends time working on his fitness. Cardio fitness, power training, mountain biking, tennis and skiing are the sports that keep him in top shape. Since August 2006, Xavier obtained a Master’s degree in International Business at the University of Maastricht. This greatly helps him with the business side of motorsport. He has proven to be very skilled in sports marketing and is experienced in communicating with the media.
He also is an accredited Consciousness Coach, trainer and keynote speaker. On the subject of Passion, Leadership and Dreams he speaks for groups to inspire them to follow their (hidden) dreams and live a life of purpose. This comes from his commitment to live your dreams and to inspire others. A combination of new levels of consciousness and great lessons he learned from motorsport.
