It was great to hear after a very difficult couple of weeks that AUH Motorsport are heading back to Europe to defend the European Masters title that they sensationally won last year with Bassam Kronfli and Christophe Hissette. The world was turned upside down recently with the terribly sad and far too early passing of Christophe. AUH Motorsport however are dedicating their adventure to Christophe and are heading back to race for him and his Family.

There is a slight change to the set-up this year though as AUH aim to take titles in two different classes. Skills merchant Jordan Grogor will be taking the SR8 field on in his V8 monster. He will be supported by Usmaan Mughal & Aldous Mitchell in their SR3 and Humaid Al Masaood & Jassim Saif Al Shamsi also racing an SR3 under the banner of Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority. With a 48 car field for the first round at Spa it is destined to be an Epic!!

Good friend and reigning Champion Bassam Kronfli will be their supporting the team.

We hope you will follow the exploits of AUH Motorsport (we will try our best to bring you results and stories) as they race in memory of a friend and racer that is missed terribly.

  1. On top of all the personal turmoil and crap I’ve been through lately the news of Christophe’s passing came like an enormous kick in the nutsack…haven’t been near a racetrack since…and I never even had the chance to meet and chat with him properly.

    Did do a little private drive in honour of a true gentleman racer though…about the only tribute I could think of.

    Anyways, good to see AUH picking themselves up, aiming high and moving on with things. It’s what Christophe probably would have wanted anyways!
