JMW Motorsport seals a trip to Le Mans

JMW Motorsport will be once again on the grid in the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans as the Ferrari customer team finished second in the European Le Mans Series championship. The other top level Ferrari team, Spirit of Race, was fourth in the championship won by the no. 88 Porsche of Proton Competition.

Paul Ricard. The season opened with an extraordinary triumph over the Porsche, sealed on the last lap by an unstoppable Miguel Molina in the JMW Motorsport 488 GTE together with Liam Griffin and Alex MacDowall, while at Monza Duncan Cameron, Matt Griffin and Aaron Scott dominated, winning by almost a lap ahead, courtesy of a near perfect race strategy by the Spirit of Race pitwall.

Silverstone. JMW Motorsport’s season was hit by Spielberg’s zero in the third race, due to a technical failure, because otherwise car no. 66 was always involved in thrilling battles, like at Silverstone when it beat the Porsche by a mere tenth of a second. On the other side, Spirit of Race’s season never quite recovered from the retirement in the first race of the season at the Paul Ricard Circuit.
