The Swiss AMG customer team Hofor Racing claimed the third position in today’s 12-hour race of Mugello.

Hofor Racing participated in the race with the driver quartet Michael Kroll, Roland Eggimann (both SUI), Kenneth Heyer (GER) and Christiaan Frankenhout (NED) and started the race from the fourth position on the grid. Start number 1 did not lag to establish itself amongst the leading group of the field and led the race for numerous laps. Eventually, the SLS AMG GT3 fell back to the third position because of a tyre failure and ended the race with a backlog of two laps to the winner after 349 rounds driven.

Michael Kroll, team manager and driver Hofor Racing: “After the success in the 24 Hours of Barcelona in September last year, we are now very pleased about today’s third position. Without the tyre failure we possibly could have achieved ven better results. Thanks to everybody in the team for the great performance!”

In three endurance races of the year with the participation of Mercedes, at least one AMG customer team wins a podium position for the third time. This makes us feel confident in view of the rest of the season. Thanks to the teams of Car Collection and De Lorenzi Racing for their performance with the SLS AMG GT3 in Mugello.”
