Le Castellet (July 17, 2016) – Having won the previous round of the 24H Series powered by Hankook at Zandvoort, the Precote Herberth Motorsport Porsche 991 GT3 R (#911, Alfred Renauer/Robert Renauer/Daniel Alleman/Ralf Bohn) stroke again at the Hankook 24H Circuit Paul Ricard. The German squad took over the lead in the late Saturday afternoon and managed a trouble-free race from that point of time. With the impressive margin of 14 laps, Daniel Allemann crossed the finish line after having done 591 laps, covering a total distance of 3.452,62 kilometres on the 5.842 kilometre circuit at the French Riviera.

Behind the dominant Porsche, the battle for the remaining podium places was open until the last stint. Finally, the Ram Racing Mercedes AMG GT3 (#30, Stuart Hall/Roald Goethe/Daniel Brown/Jamie Campbell-Walter) came home second. Third place was achieved by an A6-Am car, the Hofor-Racing Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 (#10, Michael Kroll/Chantal Kroll/Roland Eggimann/Christiaan Frankenhout/Kenneth Heyer).

The first two teams, Precote Herberth Motorsport and Ram Racing, already occupied the best two positions in the Paul Ricard inaugural edition in 2015, but in reversed order. This year, the Porsche managed to do five laps more than the Mercedes had done last year.
