So I made a kind of classical intro, and I quite like it, but it sounds best when it´s played on 160 bpm or something with 8th triplets. The pattern of the riff goes like this:

Q=160
Gtr I
|-3-| |-3-| |-3-| |-3-| |-3-| |-3-| |-3-|
E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E
||---------------------------------------------|
||o-------n-----n-----n-----n-----n-----n-----|
||------n---n-----n------n-----n-----n-----n---|
||----n-------n-----n------n-----n-----n-----n-|
||o-n------------------------------------------|
||---------------------------------------------|

n = any note, just to be sure, you know.... :D

So I know the only real answer is PRACICE, but are there any classical kind of fingerpicking tips, which would help for this exercise?

yea, then there is really no advice i can give you besides just start slow and increase you tempo gradually. Dont just start off blazing fast, iv done that and it make your notes sound muffed out.
