Rebellion Racing has announced it will be continuing with Andrea Belicchi for their 2013 campaign after a successful 2012 season which saw him take LMP1 victory at Silverstone and Shanghai in the FIA World Endurance Championship.
“I am delighted at the prospect of racing again with Rebellion Racing, it’s my second family.”
– Andrea Belicchi.
Belicchi has been with the Swiss team from the start and has driven a variety of cars across GT, LMP2 and LMP1.
The 12 Hours of Sebring will mark the start of the 2013 season for the team as the American Le Mans Series enters its final season before the GRAND-AM/ALMS merge. Full details of Rebellion Racing’s season are set to be revealed later this month.
“The Team’s racing programme for 2013 is not finalised for the moment, but I am confident it will be a strong one. There is mutual trust between us and we will be looking to be in a position to win, no matter which championship or continent we’re racing on! The team and our technical partners are working hard on improvements for the car, there are many developments to come, and I am ready myself already to start the new season with Rebellion Racing” said Belicchi.
Rebellion Racing Team Manager Bart Hayden added: “I am very pleased that Andrea will be with us again next season, he has been and remains a key member of the team. He is quick, reliable, loyal and he shares our great team spirit.”
