Michele Beretta: “For sure one of the best season of my career so far! After the good performance at Nurburgring, we knew that compared to the first half of the season we were much competitive, but Barcelona could be a track not easy for us, however we were very strong and this is a fantastic result. The team has done an outstanding job allowing us to fight in the Top 10. After the laurel conquered in the Qualifying Race, Luca and I thought just to have fun in the last race of the championship, but obviously we pushed in the same way, with spectacular overtakes! In addition to the team, I want to say thank to Luca, 4Motorsport and all my sponsors, friends and supporters, hoping that this title is only the first of many in the GT series.
