HEXIS RACING CLAIMS MOMENTOUS DOUBLE VICTORIES WITH NEW 12C GT3  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.

McLaren GT Project Director Andrew Kirkaldy said: 'I am delighted for Hexis Racing and its drivers following their spectacular team performance in Spain. I am equally pleased for the team at McLaren GT who have been dedicated to supporting all of our clients in the debut competitive season of the new 12C GT3. This is a fantastic result for all involved, and it is great to see our combined efforts have helped one of our customer teams to the top step of the podium.

With the first victory for the 12C GT3 now secured, our engineers will focus their efforts on comprehensively supporting all of our customer teams and ensuring the 12C GT3 is equally rewarding for all of our clients.'
