Rebellion Confirm Single Car ALMS Campaign For 2013

1 Mins read

Petit Le Mans winners Rebellion Racing have confirmed their intention to race for the LMP1 and overall championships in next year’s American Le Mans Series (ALMS), continuing to fuel Lola-Toyota coupes.

The Swiss team will field a single car throughout the 2013 season, the season beginning with the team mounting a two car assault on the 61st 12 Hours of Sebring. The drivers, for both the full time and second Sebring entry, will be announced at a later date.

Bart Hayden’s team enjoyed a fruitful 2012 season, winning the LMP1 teams’ championship in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), taking six wins in class across the eight race season.

However, despite the success on the world stage, Hayden explains, the best returns for the team lie in the ALMS, free from the overall domination of the factory cars in the LMP1 category.

“We want to build upon those results in 2013 and aim to add to our tally of overall race wins,” said the team manager. “The visibility generated by overall wins is more in line with what our partners require and desire.  The WEC is a World Championship and we would like to find a way to continue racing there too.  Over the coming weeks, we will be striving to put together a programme to complement our presence in the ALMS.”

As such, the team continues to work toward firming up a parallel program to return to the WEC and to the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2013.
