2010 is proving to be a very successful season for Swiss racing driver Fredy Barth. Barth drives in the World Touring Car Championship. At age 16, Barth was told that he was too old to take up racing. Most promising young drivers have years of karting experience under their belts by that age. Fredy did not let the negative advice deter him. Then at age 18, he was diagnosed with lymph node cancer, and again he did not let bad news stand in his way.
Barth’s fascination with motorsports motivated him as he traveled the road to recovery. Since beating cancer, Barth has zoomed ahead. In 2000 he won the Winfield World Challenge. In 2005 he founded his own company. Today at age 30, he is one of the world’s best racing drivers, a much sought-after racing instructor, and he has a strong charitable commitment, working for many years with the “Child and Cancer – Swiss Research Foundation”.
Fredy likes to show people through his actions that it is never too late to begin pursing their dreams. He is true to himself, and his passion makes his dreams come true. Carl F. Bucherer is proud to welcome Fredy as an ambassador.
