Windhoek – Zimbabwean motorsport ace Axcil Jefferies is standing tall on the global stage after racing to a podium finish at the GT World Challenge Europe Sprint Cup finale in Barcelona, Spain last weekend.

Jefferies paired with Madpanda Motorsport partner Ezequiel Perez Companc (ARG) in the Silver Cup as they secured the runner-up spot.

The best Silver Cup race results last weekend were achieved by fellow Mercedes-AMG drivers Benjamin Hites (CHL) and Jim Pla (FRA) in the #89 AKKA ASP Team entry as well as Juuso Puhakka (FIN) and Oscar Tunjo (COL) with the #2 Toksport WRT car, who, between them, scored a 1-2 for Mercedes-AMG Motorsport in the second race.

Jefferies used his Twitter handle to let the world how he felt after taking second place, saying: “Disappointing end to the Championship.. Had a rear wheel come loose again! Silver lining is that we secured 2nd in the Silver Championship …  Onwards and upwards.”

The Sprint Cup overall standings are: Overall win and a pair of third places for #88 AKKA ASP Team in the final three races; runner-up spot for Timur Boguslavskiy and third place for Raffaele Marciello of #88 AKKA ASP Team; Silver Cup: runner-up spot for Ezequiel Perez Companc and Axcil Jefferies (Madpanda Motorsport) and 1-2 in the Silver Cup in race two for #89 AKKA ASP and #2 Toksport WRT.
