A total of 27 cars are set to take part in next weekend’s Six Hours of Bahrain, including the return of two familiar GTE-Am entries and new drivers for the penultimate round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.

AF Corse will return with both of its GTE-Am class Ferrari F458 Italias after sitting out the Shanghai round.

ENTRY LIST: Six Hours of Bahrain

Alessandro Pier Guidi, Alexander Talkanitsa and Jeff Segal will drive the No. 61 Ferrari, while Steve Wyatt, Michele Rugolo and Andrea Bertolini return to the wheel of the No. 81 car.

Both Klaus Bachler and Nicki Thiim are back with Proton Competition and Aston Martin Racing, respectively, after missing the Chinese race due to their Porsche Supercup commitments.

Abdulaziz Al Faisal, meanwhile, has been confirmed in the No. 99 Craft-Bamboo-backed Aston Martin Vantage in GTE-Pro, filling in for Darryl O’Young, who will be competing in Macau that weekend.

In addition to a previously announced lineup of Mark Patterson, David Cheng and Keiko Ihara in the No. 35 OAK Racing Morgan-Judd, the Lotus CLM P1/01 AER sees Nathanael Berthon and Simon Trummer join Pierre Kaffer at the wheel of the LMP1-L machine.

Mike Conway, meanwhile, will make his second start for Toyota Racing in the No. 7 car alongside Alex Wurz and Stephane Sarrazin, with the championship-leading No. 8 car remaining with a two-driver lineup.
