Rebelion Racing has just unveiled the colors of its Rebellion R13 set compete in the World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC). This car is currently being developed by ORECA Technology and will hit the track for the first time in early April, shortly before the Prologue at the Circuit Paul Ricard.
This year marks the return of the Anglo-Swiss team to the LMP1 class. In 2017, Rebellion Racing won the FIA World Endurance LMP2 Teams trophy. For this 2018-2019 Super Season, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, two cars will be fielded. The #1 will be shared by two previous winners of the legendary endurance race, Neel Jani (2016) and André Lotterer (2011, 2012 and 2014), to be joined by Brazilian driver Bruno Senna. At the wheel of the #3, Thomas Laurent, winner of the last edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the LMP2 class and defending champion in the Asian Le Mans Series, will join Mathias Beche and Gustavo Menezes.
Rebellion Racing will also be competing in the European Le Mans Series with an ORECA 07-Gibson christened the APR-Rebellion. The team has joined forces with Algarve Pro Racing (for the technical side) in the LMP2 class. The names of the three drivers have already been announced: Thomas Laurent with Harrison Newey - defending champion in the Asian Le Mans Series - and Ryan Cullen, mainly seen in the Porsche SuperCup, a series that serves as a curtain-raiser to Formula 1 Grand Prix.
The first round of the 2018-2019 Super Season will take place at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium on May 5th.
