Top-result at the Dubai 24h
Ehret, who crossed the line 3 laps behind the 3rd placed Mercedes, was more than satisfied with the result: „All our 3 Am-drivers showed a competitive performance and made no severe mistakes. So Pierre (Kaffer) and Marco (Seefried) were able to show a solid as ever performance and promote the car really good to the front of the field in the night. I can´t tell that we did somehow loose the podium, as the 3 cars in front of us were really faster. Instead we gained the 4th place. We had only slight contacts during the race, no severe repairs and nearly no penaltys, apart for one resulting from qualifying which costed us 5 start-positions. The car was really well prepared, so hats off to Danny and his new crew!“
Pierre Ehret & his GT-Corse-squad leave Dubai with a good swing: „This event did really develop well. We will for sure return in 2015. The team was also satisfied with that good entry into the season. This was not to be expected, especially as this was their 1st outing at this challenging event and after the reorganisation of the team in late 2013. Now we have 9-10 more endurance races with the F458 GT3 on our schedule. We now know what we can archieve and what or level of competition is. 2014 will be a promising and competetive season!"
