Three weeks until WEC season finale gets underway!
In just three weeks’ time the first of FIA WEC’s first-ever double-header will get underway with the Bapco 6 Hours of Bahrain (29 – 30 October).
Forming round five of WEC Season 9, the Bapco 6 Hours of Bahrain will be run in daylight. The race will start at 11h00 local time and finish six hours later at 17h00, just as the sun is setting.
The WEC season-finale - the 8 Hours of Bahrain - will be staged the following weekend (Saturday 6 November) and will start in daytime and conclude in the dark.
The green flag for the race will be dropped at 14h00 and last until 22h00, providing a challenge for the drivers as they encounter changes in track temperature and daylight on the circuit. Directly after the race, the 2021 WEC World Champions will be crowned and with a total of 65 points on offer across both weekends, it will be all to play for in the desert.
It was recently announced that fans will be able to purchase tickets for both events, more information can be found about this on the Bahrain International Circuit website HERE.
