From Australia to Italy – 12 hours Mugello coming up


Just two weeks after his debut in the Dunlop V8 Supercar Series Fredrik Lestrup is back in Europe for his second race of the season. This time he enters the 12-hour race at Mugello in Italy, driving the MINI John Cooper Works S Endurance for the Besaplast Racing Team.
“The difference between cars and events could hardlu be much bigger,” Fredrik says. “But I am looking forward to this event and I’m grateful Besaplast has asked me to drive for them again. If it were just up to me I would do a race every weekend so I’m happy for every opportunity I get to race.”

Fredrik Lestrup will team up with team owner Franjo Kovac and Martin Tschornia in the #44 MINI John Cooper Works S Endurance, a car which took the team to a dominant class victory and a fifth position overall in the Barcelona 24 hour race in September last year.
“We are entering this race with high targets and are definitely looking at another class victory. The car has been constantly improved by Besaplast Racing and David Dombek Motorsport and we know it is both fast and reliable in these endurance events, and the team are always strong with the strategy. This event is a little bit different with three hours on Friday followed by a parc fermé break before the remaining nine hours of the race the next day. Nevertheless I think we can be strong again and I’m looking forward to be back with Besaplast for another endurance event before heading back to Australia again.”
