Andrew Watson heads to Bahrain as the 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship draws to its conclusion with two races being held over the next two weekends.
The 6 and 8 hour races will conclude the 2021 season and for Andrew Watson, who took his maiden FIA WEC podium in Bahrain in 2019, the scene is set to end the season on a high for the D'station Racing driver.
Partnering Tomonobu Fujii and Satoshi Hoshino in the #777 Aston Martin Vantage, the team currently occupy 7th in the standings. One podium finish, at the 6 Hours of Monza, and a sixth place finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, have been the highlights of the year so far for the team who hope to return to the podium in Bahrain.
The 5.412km Bahrain International Circuit has become a staple of the WEC calendar in recent years. Hosting two events in the 2019-20 season, the circuit doubles up once again 2021 to bring the season to a close.
“I’m really looking forward to the Bahrain double-header, it’s a circuit I have fond memories of after taking my maiden FIA WEC podium there in 2019 so the goal is to try to replicate that success. Everyone has been working really hard behind the scenes to end the year on a high so I’m feeling confident that we can push forward in the standings and secure some silverware!”
