Zimbabwean Axcil Jefferies becomes the second African racer to
compete in the FIA Formula Two Championship after Ricardo Teixeira
who raced in 2010 and now competes in GP2.
The 18-year-old began karting in 2007 in the Rotax Max Euro Junior series followed by the Northern Regions karting championships in 2008, finishing seventh.
In 2009 he made his single seater debut in the Formula BMW Pacific championship ending an impressive third overall with two wins and six podiums to his name. After a second season in Formula BMW Pacific, he was forced to take a step back from racing due to budget restraints but returns to F2 this year full of gusto.
Axcil is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the charity Childline.
