On 23rd November 1969, Olivier Beretta was born in Monte Carlo. After a less than brilliant showing in the junior categories, the Monegasque driver tried the switch to Formula 1, racing for Larrousse in 1994, competing in ten Grands Prix, with a best result of seventh in Hockenheim, before being replaced by drivers who brought more money to the team. With his adventure in the blue riband series over, Olivier found his metier lay in GT racing, a category in which he starred. Among his best results are no less than five wins in the Le Mans 24 Hours, five GTS/GT1 titles in ALMS, courtesy of 41 race wins, two FIA GT titles and three victories in the Sebring 12 Hours.

In 2010, he joined Ferrari, competing in the FIA Endurance Championship and the following year in ALMS, as well as taking part in the Daytona 24 Hours. His best results at the wheel of a 458 GT2 are victories in the 2012 Sebring 12 Hours, teamed with Andrea Bertolini and Marco Cioci and the ALMS race at Virginia International Raceway this year, paired with Matteo Malucelli.
