Taking place on 15 November in Sakhir, Bahrain, Chopard was the official timing partner of the 7th round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.
Supporting Porsche Motorsport as its Official Timing Partner since the beginning of the season, Chopard has been following the teams with great expectations of victory. At the 6 Hours of Bahrain, for the first time this year, both Porsche 919 Hybrid crews were part of the podium ceremony finishing second and third. In the LMGTE Pro class race, the two Porsche 911 RSR ended the race in fourth and fifth positions, narrowly missing podium placing.
The trio of Romain Dumas (France), Neel Jani (Switzerland) and Marc Lieb (Germany) finished second in round seven of the FIA World Endurance Championship in Bahrain. Immediately behind them the sister car crossed the line. Timo Bernhard (Germany), Brendon Hartley (New Zealand) and Mark Webber (Australia) came third in the six-hour race.
Great fights for position in the beginning and strategies that produced exciting outcomes in the end were the result of the penultimate round of the world championship, along with high temperatures of over 30 degrees.
