After unveiling the two 24 Hours of Le Mans special liveries, REBELLION Racing is about to start the crazy Le Mans week.
The most awaited week of the year has finally begun! On June 15th, the 87th 24 Hours of Le Mans will end the FIA WEC Super Season. Currently second overall and first non-Hybrid Team, REBELLION Racing wants to impress for this last race.
The Test Day on June 2nd, which allowed to work on the preparation of cars and to get a maximum of data, Sunday was devoted to the Pesage in the city center of Le Mans. Today (Tuesday, June 11), the crazy Le Mans week begins!
Alexandre Pesci, President and Owner of REBELLION Racing
“I am happy to participate for the twelfth consecutive year at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with these two colorful Art Cars. I hope to see them shine by their performances too and why not, a victory.”
Bart Hayden, Team manager of REBELLION Racing
“After the Test Day, we are happy with the new aero kit. It is going to give us good strength and performance on the car, it should be good on trafic. We are confident, we are looking for to the race. We expect to have a very close battle with SMP Racing, maybe not so close with Toyota but we hope to be strong.”
Thomas Laurent, R-13 N. 3 driver
“We worked a lot for the Test Day, which allowed us to prepare the car the best possible. The crazy week of Le Mans officially started with the Pesage, now I can not wait to see what the rebels are going to do on the track.”
Gustavo Menezes, R-13 N. 3 driver
“Very excited, this is the Big One for us. It’s been a build up for a year now and the Super Season last year, we had the opportunity to finish on the overall podium. We have all to keep on working to make it possible. Le Mans is everyone’s dream and we are trying to continue to step up everytime. Let’s see how it goes!”
Nathanaël Berthon, R-13 N. 3 driver
“I can not wait for the marathon week to begin! It’s a really special race, close to so many passionate people from around the world. We already impressed after the colorful Pesage, now we want to finish in style by also showing on the track all the efforts that the Team has made! From a more personal point of view, I can not wait to say hello to the Porsche S.”
André Lotterer, R-13 N. 1 driver
“It’s always a great pleasure to be at Le Mans. This legendary circuit and this race full of history is the place of my greatest successes. I look forward to doing some great tricks with our LMP1 car and hoping to do a great job at the end of the race. It’s going to be tough to get close to the Toyotas so we focus on it and we keep pushing.”
Bruno Senna R-13 N. 1 driver
“The Test Day has gone strong for us, very tiring. We learned a lot about the car and I hope that we can maximise it for the race. I hope the new livery will bring some good fortune… I can not wait to sit on the car!”
Neel Jani, R-13 N. 1 driver
“Long week ahead, it started well with a new flashy livery! I hope that’s a good omen for the 24 Hours. In terms of race, I think the most important thing is reliability and thanks to it I think everything is possible.”
