Worldwide: Titles for Mattias Ekström/EKS and Aston Martin Racing

19. January 2017 -

Champions rely on PAGID Racing. The double title win by Mattias Ekström and his Team EKS in the FIA World Rally Championship as well as first place for Aston Martin Racing in the FIA WEC are only two from the many highlights the 2016 motorsport year had in store.

Victory for Mattias Ekström in the drivers’ standings and first place in the teams’ classification – that is the successful record for PAGID Racing partner EKS in the 2016 FIA World Rallycross Championship. For EKS, the final round in Argentina concluded a season in which the team dominated from the very beginning. 44 first places for Ekström and Heikkinen in a total of 131 races, four outright wins for Ekström and another five overall podium finishes for EKS clearly speak for themselves.

A great success for Aston Martin Racing in the FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC): in the season finale at Bahrain, the team sealed the world championship titles in both the GT Pro teams’ classification and in the GT drivers’ standings (Nicki Thiim and Marco Sørensen). In total, Aston Martin Racing scored eight race wins and five further podium finishes in the 2016 FIA WEC.

PAGID Racing also had a successful season in the 24H Series: with the #10 SLS AMG, Hofor Racing claimed victory in the A6 class. Moreover, Chantal Kroll secured herself the Ladies’ Cup. Another 24H Series season highlight was the victory for Precote Herberth Motorsport with its #911 Porsche 911 GT3 R in the 24H Paul Ricard.

PAGID Racing partner Liqui Moly Team Engstler ended its TCR Asia Series season in a perfect way: Andy Yan won the drivers’ title and Team Engstler secured first place in the teams’ standings.
