Stoffel Vandoorne will make his first appearance in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) since the 2021 season finale in Bahrain, as he steps in for injured driver Nico Muller. Vandoorne will join forces with Loic Duval and Gustavo Menezes to share the #94 Peugeot 9X8 at the Fuji 6 Hours in Japan.

Peugeot has shown promising performance and improved reliability, with a recent podium finish at Monza, and aims to continue fighting for top positions and podiums. The Fuji Speedway presents challenging weather conditions, but Peugeot has historically performed well there. Vandoorne, who joined Peugeot as a reserve driver earlier in the year, will finally have the opportunity to showcase his skills in the WEC.
