Pitstop strategies were coming into play and after a few laps in fifth, Woodward was on the move too, taking a place a lap over a five lap spell to settle back in second behind Inter Europol again. “It felt a busy stint and no one came passed me, but it seemed like I had passed about 100 GT cars,” he added.
Like Kaiser before him Woodward had one lap in the lead as his rival pitted one lap earlier, but with Kaiser back out in in fourth and a podium finish on the horizon.
“I had taken over the lead car and expected to be in the top three, everything was good and knew we were there or there abouts and saving our quick stop until last,” Terrence explained.
They refuelled but stayed on the old tyres for Kaiser’s final stint and it developed into duel between Inter Europol’s Oliveira and Kaiser as they worked through to first and second overall.
Kaiser pushed hard in the final laps, but Oliveira finally took the flag 9.023 secs clear, but it was solid and rewarding second place for the 360 crew.
“Oliveira had gone for new tyres and once he got me he just drove away again,” said Kaiser.
“It was unbelievably hot all weekend and it was our first podium since the Portimao win in 2019, it was one for the whole team,” Terrence concluded.
