TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Ready for Desert Double

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Hypercar history will be written when the 2021 FIA World #endurance Championship (WEC) titles are decided in a #bahrain double-header, and four-time Le Mans winner TOYOTA GAZOO #racing is ready for a duel in the desert.

For the first time in #wec history, races will be held on consecutive weekends at the same venue; on Saturday 30 October the 6 Hours of #bahrain, followed by the 8 Hours of #bahrain a week later.

A 100% win record this season means TOYOTA GAZOO #racing travels to #bahrain in pole position to retain the World Championship. The team leads Alpine by 51 points, with a total of 65 on offer in the final races, meaning third place in the first #bahrain contest is enough to guarantee a third consecutive title.

There is a three-way fight for the drivers' crown and the identity of the first Hypercar drivers' World Champions will be decided only in the final race of 2021, on Saturday 6 November.

Following their emotional first Le Mans victory in August, the #7 GR010 HYBRID crew of Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and José María López head the standings as they attempt to defend the title they won in #bahrain last year.

Sébastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Brendon Hartley, in the #8 GR010 HYBRID, are only nine points behind having also won two of the four races so far this season. Another two victories would guarantee them the title while the third-placed Alpine drivers are also in the championship challenge, trailing by 30 points.

TOYOTA GAZOO #racing has a very strong record in #bahrain, having won five times from eight visits to the 15-turn, 5.412km #bahrain International Circuit, including three wins for its legendary TS050 HYBRID LMP1 car.

The new GR010 HYBRID Hypercar will make its #bahrain debut in exactly the same specification as at Le Mans, when the team earned a one-two victory thanks to a strong team effort to overcome fuel pressure problems caused by contamination in the fuel cell. That issue has been addressed prior to #bahrain following extensive technical investigations.
