I'll be updating this thread with all news Rebellion, as they are my favorite team evur!

Sportscar365
 
Rebellion Racing will start the FIA World Endurance Championship season with their 2013-spec Lola-Toyotas, it has been revealed.

The Anglo-Swiss squad has been confirmed on the entry list for next month’s season-opening Six Hours of Silverstone with two of its previous-generation LMP1 cars, which are eligible to be grandfathered into competition for this year.

It’s understood the build of the team’s new Rebellion R-One prototype has faced delays, with the ORECA-built LMP1-L car having been previously ruled out from taking part in “The Prologue” official pre-season test at Paul Ricard. The two Lola-Toyotas will instead be used.

Nicolas Prost and Matthias Beche are currently the only confirmed drivers on the official entry list for the two-car Rebellion effort at Silverstone, although both Nick Heidfeld and Dominik Kraihamer have also signed with the team for a full-season campaign.

The Lotus T129-AER, the only other LMP1-L entry for the season, is still listed, although there has also been delays in the Kodewa camp, which includes an ongoing court case.

A total of 31 cars are listed to take part at Silverstone, representing all of the full-season entries.

A number of confirmed drivers have yet to be added to the entry list, although it provides confirmation of Tsuigo Matsuda as KCMG’s third driver in its Oreca 03 Nissan.


New paint is looking snazzy :D, something similar will most likely be on the Rebellion R-One

They can only push a Lola so fast -- I would assume they have one of the most reliable cars out of the group though. Also Rebellion has confirmed that they have ended their partnership with Lotus

I don't see Reliability being an issue for Audi, Toyota, And Porsche come Silverstone. They've all completed extensive testing programs for that exact reason.

Then the reliability ball will be in Rebellions court from Round 2, With them debuting the R-One at Spa.

Also... What would be the point in them racing if Lotus doesn't show up?

Because the LMP1-L rules allow for a different BoP than the factory teams, so they can be bought up to speed to contend with the factories.

Will it happen though? I'll remain skeptical until Rebellion, Or Lotus win a race.

I doubt they'll win a race, but they goal is to be competitive on lap time. As long as they have 'a chance' I think they'll be happy.

tbf I think they race simply because they can. Nothing wrong with that either!

Oh no I agree, But I reckon they want to at least be able to race with someone, Rather than turn up to just make up the numbers.

IMO they should of gone P2 like Strakka. Left P1 as a factory affair.

Still not convinced we'll see the Lotus P1 either with all the issues they're having.

I'm assuming the R-one will be a much more competitive car than the Lola, and the partnership with Oreca is a huge help for Rebellion, bringing even more experience into an already experienced team.

Nico Prost!

My German isn't great, but it sounds like there's a 50% chance of the r-one being ready for Silverstone?! Sounds crazy so mayne I read it wrong?

I'll be happy to see either car. So win win, Maybe they'll get one R-One ready and run both?

I can dream right? XD

Mathias Beche just tweeted that he's going to Oreca for a seat fitting. New R-One possibly nearing completion?

Please please be on the grid at Silverstone.
