Baron Motorsport wins the 2022 Hankook 6H ABU DHABI with Brand Ambassador, Mikkel Mac and team mates Ernst Kirchmayr / Philipp Baron / Roman Ziemian & Axcil Jefferies
After securing pole position the Baron Motorsport Ferrari 488 GT3 held its advantage across the opening hour, despite the Austrian team being kept on its toes by the Lamborghini Huracán GT3s of LP Racing and Leipert Motorsport. A succession of rapid stints shortly after half-distance though saw the Ferrari gradually extend a lead it would rarely lose en-route to victory in Abu Dhabi.
“For the last 2 stints, we were in lift and coast mode, to save fuel and to save one pit stop. We weren’t even really pushing!” Mikkel Mac
“It was massive fun!” team owner Philipp Baron continued. “We enjoyed ourselves, with the car and the track and the 24H SERIES, and altogether it was a perfect weekend. Perfect performance from all of us, and it couldn’t end better than with pole position, the win and the fastest lap!”
