Toyota wins Bahrain 8 hours, Stoffel Vandoorne vice champion LMP2


Toyota also dominated the sixth and final round of the World Endurance Championship on Saturday. The Bahrain Eight Hours was won by Switzerland’s Sébastien Buemi, Japan’s Kazuki Nakajima and New Zealand’s Brendon Hartley, and the Japanese brand also took second place. The Argentinian José Maria Lopez, the Japanese Kamui Kobayashi and the Briton Mike Conway took care of that. The latter three bagged the world title.


In the LMP2, the stage win and the title went to the Belgian WRT (Oreca-Gibson). The Dutchman Robin Frijns, the Chinese Yifei Yé and the Frenchman Charles Milesi were the pilots and gave WRT a third victory in a row after Le Mans and the 6 Hours of Bahrain. Stoffel Vandoorne was third in an Oreca-Gibson with Briton Tom Blomqvist and Indonesian Sean Gelael and is second in the final standings.

Sarah Bovy (Ferrari) finished ninth in the GTE-Am. The Liège had set the third fastest time in qualifying, but dropped back early due to a penalty after a collision in the first hour.
