After a difficult start to the season, the first win has finally arrived for Michele Beretta in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup. After the unluck end at Silverstone (where the car was close to the victory but a gearbox issue stop any kind of glory), in Le Castellet everything went well and the Barwell Motorsport trio managed to conquer the highest step of the podium in Silver Cup class, with a performances always very close to the best Lamborghini in the field. What makes the result even more important is the fact that the French event, as usual, takes place over a distance of 1000 km (six hours) and is an important test for teams and drivers in view of the 24 Hours of Spa Francorchamps.
Michele drove the car in the first two hours of the race, keeping it always close to the top, gaining important positions in the standings. Sandy Mitchell and Martin Kodric completed the job, ending the race as fourteenth overall, first of the Silver Cup.

Michele Beretta: “The results achieved in Le Castellet is great because make us more confidence looking for Spa after a difficult start to the season. We remained consistently in the Top 20, fighting with our opponents in the Silver Cup until the fifth hour, when the Safety Car froze our success. We had already shown that we can win but technical issues prevented us from collecting what we deserved. I am confident that the remaining races because our crew is extremely balanced and all three have always had a good pace, especially when compared to the other Lamborghini cars, who are always our first reference.
