Fredy Barth – Instructor at Scuderia Hanseat
A podium after 24 hours of racing
In the Paul Ricard (FRA) 24 hours teammates Oliver Ditzler (CHE), Jean-Paul von Burg (CHE), Jürgen Krebs (GER) and I finished third in the A6-AM class and a highly impressive 6th overall. We had to overcome a great deal of very strong competition from the faster GT3 cars. Our expertly prepared Leipert Motorsport Lamborghini Supertrofeo was also hamstrung by a need for more frequent pit-stops due to the higher tyre wear rates incurred keeping pace with the front runners. My teammates drove flawlessly and gave everything. Thanks again to the Leipert team for preparing such a fantastic car. In my view it was an almost perfect 24-hour race.
