GT MASTERS / 24H SERIES
The 2016 season was one of the busiest seasons of all. First of all Xavier participated for the first time in the ADAC GT Masters with a brand new team to the series, Aust Motorsport. Xavier guided the team with all his experience towards the front in his Audi R8 LMS in this strong international championship with more than 30 GT3 cars on the grid.
Next to the ADAC GT Masters, Xavier raced wth his American friends in the MRS-USA Porsche GT3 Cup car in the 24h Series. This series with 12- and 24-hour endurance race events at fascinating circuits all over the world, is aimed at amateurs and gentlemen drivers, semi-professional and professional drivers. A wide variety of touring cars and GT’s are eligible to race. With 1 win, 4 podiums, 3 pole-positions and 1 fastest lap it was a very successful collaboration.
One more thing came ticked off the bucket list; the 24h Nurburgring. Unfortunately, the team had to retire early on in the race. The season ended on a high with an invitation to the Asian Le Mans Series in Zhuhai by AAI Motorsport. Xavier raced for the first time in China and in the McLaren MP4-12C GT3.
