Fredy Bath WTCC: Barth experienced a difficult season in the WTCC. This was mainly due to technical issues with the new Seat Leon 1.6. In 2010 Fredy Barth started competing in the WTCC with Sunred.

In the final rankings he managed 19th place and tenth place under the privateers. He wants to get his own back next season.
