|McLaren GT customer team Hexis Racing claimed first victories for the MP4-12C GT3 this weekend with back-to-back wins at the Circuito de Navarra in Spain. A dominant performance by reigning FIA GT1 World champions Hexis in qualifying and the championship race places the French team in second position in the series after three rounds. The weekend's qualifying session saw a strong start from the #1 12C GT3, driven by Fred Makowiecki (FRA) and Stef Dusseldorp (NLD). The duo dominated the race throughout and crossed the line more than 20 seconds ahead of the rest of the field. This result secured an all-McLaren 12C GT3 front row lock out, and another impressive performance from both driver pairings again saw Makowiecki and Dusseldorp lead from lights to flag, while the #2 12C GT3 driven by McLaren GT driver Alvaro Parente (PRT) and Grégoire Demoustier (FRA) battled hard and claimed fourth place. All the action from the FIA GT1 World race in Spain may be watched again at: http://youtu.be/cz2sGeJLZ34 McLaren GT Project Director Andrew Kirkaldy said: 'I am delighted for Hexis Racing and its drivers following their spectacular team performance in Spain.
