Rebellion hung up the towel and the WEC title will be defined between the two Toyota

The Swiss team confirmed that it will not appear at the Bahrain 8 Hours despite the fact that its pilots have mathematical chances of winning the crown.

With the second place achieved in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, U.S Gustavo Menezes, The Brazilian Bruno senna And French Norman Nato maintained their chances of fighting for the drivers' title of the Wec. However the Rebellion Racing decided not to show up at 8 Hours from Bahrain. This measure leaves the trio out of the fight for the crown, which will now be defined between the pilots of the Toyota GAZOO Racing.

Rebellion RacingCalim bouhadra, responsible for Rebellion, had stated that the only possibility to complete the 2020 WEC season would be if Menezes, Senna and Nato kept their options to be crowned. With 39 points in dispute at the close of the tournament, mathematically they had them since they are separated by 30 units from the Swiss Sebastien Buemi, the Japanese Kazuki Nakajima and the New Zealander Brendon Hartley. But after the appointment in La Sarthe, Bouhadra made official that they will not race in Bahrain on next November 14, thus ending their participation in the WEC.

This leaves the Toyota crews as the only contenders for the title. Thanks to their victory at Le Mans, Buemi, Nakajima and Hartley went to the front of the standings with seven point advantage about his teammates, the Argentine Jose Maria Lopez, the Japanese Kamui Kobayashi and English Mike conway, who finished third in the mythical test.
