· The season is coming to an end for Team Peugeot TotalEnergies
· Nico Müller will be back behind the wheel of the #94 PEUGEOT 9X8
· The 8 Hours of Bahrain will take place the 3rd and 4th November in the Bahrain International Circuit
After a short break since the last race in Fuji, Team Peugeot TotalEnergies is ready to enter its two PEUGEOT 9X8 for the 8 Hours of Bahrain, seventh and last round of the FIA World Endurance Championship 2023 season.
After showing strong reliability during the 6 Hours of Fuji, though with less performance than expected, Team Peugeot TotalEnergies focussed on working hard during this short break to give its maximum for this last round and to perform at the highest level possible.
The PEUGEOT 9X8 first participation on the Bahrain International Circuit for last year’s FIA WEC Finale will allow the team to use its previously gathered data to have the most consistent race possible as it has done since the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Their goal is to stay as close to the leaders of the Hypercar class, made up of no less than twelve cars.
The PEUGEOT 9X8 will meet their initial line-ups with the return of Nico Müller alongside Loïc Duval and Gustavo Menezes in the #94 and the #93 driven by Jean-Eric Vergne, Paul Di Resta and Mikkel Jensen.
On the 5th of November the traditional Rookie Test will take place where Stoffel Vandoorne, confirmed as official driver for the 2024 FIA WEC season and Malthe Jakobsen, part of the young talent programme of Peugeot Sport, will be at the wheel of PEUGEOT 9X8. They will be supported by Team Peugeot TotalEnergies driver, Mikkel Jensen.
