Rebellion reveals Le Mans line-ups

11 February 2013

Rebellion Racing has become the latest team to confirm its driver line-ups for the Le Mans 24 Hours after the recent announcement of the entry list for June's race.

The team has secured two entries into the French classic with its Lola-Toyota LMP1 cars, and will then run one car in the World Endurance Championship and one in the American Le Mans Series for the remainder of the season.

Rebellion has already confirmed that Nick Heidfeld, Cong Fu Cheng, Andrea Belicchi, Neel Jani, Nicolas Prost and Mathias Beche would share driving duties in the two cars but hadn't revealed the exact nature of the line-ups it expected to field.

However, it has now been confirmed that Heidfeld and Jani are to lead the ALMS effort while also competing in the first three WEC races of the season at Silverstone, Spa and Le Mans – being joined in the latter three by Prost.

The Frenchman will also share the car for the opening round of the American Le Mans season at Sebring.

Belicchi, Beche and Cheng will therefore share the sister car at Sebring, Silverstone, Spa and Le Mans with the driver line-ups for post Le Mans yet to be decided.
