Bertolini/Bartels Champions, Pier Guidi/Bobbi Win in Zolder


It was not easy; nothing could be taken for granted. It was difficult and hard fought but, in the end, Michael Bartels and Andrea Bertolini deserved to win the title. It was a victory that came after eight intense rounds and after battles both on and off the track. The newly-crowned champions' consistent results proved to be decisive, as did the desire to not give up during the 24 Hours of Spa when the team worked to rebuild the car and claim points that, in the end, proved to be crucial.

It is tough to become champions three times over in a series where the standard of the cars and drivers is very high and doing it is not necessarily down to the driver's talent. Impeccable organisation and a quick, reliable and competitive car and crew that lived up to its billing is also fundamental.
