Dominik Kraihamer has joined REBELLION Racing for the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship.

The Austrian, who last year drove for the Lotus LMP2 team, will join Nick Heidfield, Nicolas Prost and Mathias Beche at the team, who will debut the new REBELLION R1 this season in the WEC’s LMP1-L class.

“I’m really happy getting a drive at Rebellion Racing – that’s brilliant,” said Kraihamer. “For me, this is exactly the right move.  Following a tough year in 2013, this is a great opportunity to show that I am ready for consistent and fast lap times in the top LMP1 prototype class.

“It is also an honour for me that REBELLION Racing Team Principal Alexandre Pesci and Team Manager Bart Hayden trust in my abilities.  They have taken in to their team many talented racers, who have had and developed great careers.”

Hayden went on to say: “We have followed very closely Dominik’s career over the past years.  He is a great racer and has shown his talent by performing record laps at Le Mans as well as by driving consistently high speed stints during WEC races.

“After several apprentice years in endurance racing, he is now ready for the next step at the absolute top level.  I am sure that he will deliver a great job in our P1 car!”

The 2014 WEC season starts at Silverstone on April 20.
