aturday marked the end of the 2017 World Endurance Championship as well as Porsche's dominant reign in the series. After clinching the season title as well as winning its 19th 24 Hours of Le Mans this season, the German manufacturer has completed its international farewell tour and will now depart from endurance racing's top prototype category. The No. 1 and No. 2 Porsche 919 Hybrids finished the 6 Hours of Bahrain in second and third place respectively, leaving P1 for Toyota in a sentimental moment for the sport.

The race was eventually won by the No. 8 TS050 Hybrid driven by Sebastien Buemi, Anthony Davidson, and Kazuki Nakajima despite Porsche starting on the pole. A tight contest was held between the two LMP1 teams through the first four hours, but in a critical crash with 2:01:13 remaining, the then-race leading 919 Hybrid crashed into a fellow Porsche in the GTE-Am category. This caused major damage and placed a stop and go penalty on the No. 1 Porsche LMP1 car, surrendering its hopes of winning in the outfit's last race entry.

“He was out really wide and I just assumed he was giving us space,” Tandy said of the No. 86 Porsche 911.

On its way to victory, Toyota had to overcome a series of issues that even included team driver Anthony Davidson breaking his toe. During an accident that occurred outside of the car in the pit lane, Davidson kicked the prototype's door and subsequently broke one of his middle digits. Despite that, Gazoo Racing continued to battle with Porsche and deny the team a win at the Middle Eastern six-hour event.
