Team 360 Win in Portimao - Round 6 ELMS (October 2019)

Team 360, sponsored by of MJM Industrial Ltd, won the final round race of the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) held in Portimao, Portugal, ending the season in the best possible way! The three team drivers were Terrence Woodward, Ross Kaiser, and James Dayson.

It was a scorching start and by the end of the opening lap Kaiser was in third. “I had a run on Mikkel Jensen’s Ligier and another car into the first corner, but as I had to hit the brakes I lost places but had got them back before the end of the first lap, when the red flags came out,” he explained.

As the stops were completed the order began to settle, with Dayson duelling for fifth with the United Autosports Ligier of Garett Grist.

After repeated use of the safety car, which benefited Team 360, the final change led to Woodford taking over in first place. Woodward was left fending off rival Tommy Erdos for his entire stint. But the 360 crew had made their last mandatory stop earlier, so it was just tyres and fuel and out again, whereas United Autosports required to do a longer stop.

“It was a great last stop, as soon as the wheels were back on we were [on our] way. I think I came out 12 secs up, but traded times with Erdos, depending on the traffic. I managed to open a gap, keep my head down, stay focused and take no risks,” Woodward explained.

“I could see no one was behind me, and thought we were on the podium. But as I took the flag I saw all the team on the pitwall and my engineer Rob came on the radio and said P1."

Congratulations to Team 360!
