We’ve enjoyed six thrilling races in the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) - now, just one challenge remains. This weekend, the 8 Hours of Bahrain will bring the 2023 WEC season to a close under the famous floodlights - while also, sadly, marking the final race for the LMP2 class in this incredible championship.

The #22 ORECA 07 of Phil Hanson, Frederick Lubin and Filipe Albuquerque has celebrated three podiums so far this year (Sebring, Portimao and Fuji), and sits third in the LMP2 championship - just one point behind second place and within reach of the leaders, with points and a half awarded for the eight-hour finale.

For the sister #23 car, Bahrain is the first time since the 24 Hours of Le Mans that Olly Jarvis, Josh Pierson and Tom Blomqvist are back together in the WEC paddock. The #23 celebrated victory in Portimao, clinched a podium in Spa, and are determined to finish the season on a high.

When’s the race: Saturday 4th November, 14:00 - 22:00 (local time) / 11:00 - 19:00 (GMT)
