About Fabien Barthez

The man from the Ariège department learned the ropes in the Porsche Carrera Cup France and several single-make championships, also in France. He soon made a name for himself in the FFSA French GT Championship. Barthez won the Gentleman’s Trophy in 2011 and in 2013 he clinched the title in the FFSA GT Championship before adding a teams’ title to his laurels in 2015.

In parallel, the former French international came third in the Pro-Am category on his maiden outing in the Total 24 Hours of Spa in 2012. He also won twice in the gentlemen’s category in the FIA GT Series and saw the flag in ninth place in GTE Am on his first outing in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2014. He did even better two years later by finishing eighth in LM P2 with Panis-Barthez Compétition.

Last year, Barthez returned to the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup and won the Am Cup on his return at Monza. He scored three more podium finishes and came third in his category. He now hopes to capitalise on his experience and his promising results when he has his first taste of the Lexus RC F GT3.
