New circuit, new driver

Circuits are linked together and rhythm is still as sustained for HEXIS AMR! The team press on their Old World tour and will go to Brno (Czech Republic) next week. On this weekend of May 22nd and 23rd: the FIA GT1 World Championship third leg, and the second one of the FIA GT3 European Championship. Brno represents a significant turning point in the sporting season of HEXIS AMR, who already is at the third of the GT3 Championship. Pressure will thus move up a notch for the Makowiecki/Rodrigues and Accary/Paillard duos, respectively at the wheel of the Aston Martin DBRS9s #1 and #2, who will have to win as many points as possible to keep their European title.

The DB9 GT1 #9 is going to have a new driver: Stephane Sarrazin will run by Frederic Makowiecki's side for both the Brno and Paul Ricard (July 3rd/4th) legs. The other crews (GT1 and GT3) remain the same. Stephane Sarrazin, Peugeot Sport official driver, will thus join the team for the next two legs of the FIA GT1 World Championship. First, let's go back to his record:

Albeit unexpected, the signature between Stephane Sarrazin and HEXIS AMR is a nice wink! Indeed, it is in the early nineties that this young man meets the HEXIS company, which then becomes his sponsor in Formula 3. A few years and kilometres later, Sarrazin has HEXIS Racing discover an English brand ... Aston Martin, and its manufacturer Prodrive! It goes without saying Sarrazin's and HEXIS AMR's fates have been closely tied for a while! Today, the driver is glad to join the team and find the Aston Martin DB9. These movements in a world championship will enable him to accumulate kilometres for Le Mans 24 hours with the Peugeot Sport team.
