One month to go until WEC season-closer in Bahrain!

In only one month’s time, the FIA WEC family will be together in Bahrain for the final race of the 2019 / 2020 season – the 8 Hours of Bahrain (14 November).

There’s no denying that WEC Season 8 has been challenging as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic but a tremendous united effort saw the championship return for the rescheduled TOTAL 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps in August, followed by 24 Hours of Le Mans in September. Now the Bahrain International Circuit will host the season-closing race after ongoing efforts behind the scenes to ensure that the event can run in the safest way possible.

A number of championship titles are still to be determined in Bahrain next month including the LMP FIA World Endurance Drivers’ Championship title which will be closely fought between the No. 8 and no. 7 Toyota Gazoo Racing entries - currently only separated by seven points.  It will also form the final event for the legendary LMP1 category before it is replaced by next year’s top-tier Hypercars.

The drivers’ championship in GTE Pro is also still to be decided, as well as the teams’ and drivers’ championship titles in the Pro Am category.  TV and streaming details will be released closer to the time revealing how fans can tune in from home.
