After the Vice Champion titles secured in World MX1, World MX2 or else World SBK, Motul finished for the fourth time of the season on the second step of a world championship thanks to the feat achieved by the Hexis Aston Martin Racing team. Participating in the very new FIA GT1 World Championship, the French team supported technically by Motul indeed won in the two races run at San Luis last weekend and which counted for the last round of the 2010 season.
This result, in addition to the podiums secured at Silverstone and at Navarra and, generally speaking, the fine performances of 2010, allowed the French team to clinch this honorific place behind the Vitaphone Racing team, champion for the 6th consecutive year. Philippe Dumas, team manager, can be proud of his team which has managed to compel recognition among the world's best GT teams.
As for the Nissan Nismos, which, we should remember, were finishing only their first full season this year, the Sumo Power GT team and Swiss Racing team finished respectively in 6th and 10th place in the 2010 team general standings.
1// Vitaphone Racing Team (Maserati MC12 – 195 pts)
2// Hexis AMR (Aston Martin DB9 – 177 pts) Motul
