Rebellion Racing returns with #3

Rebellion Racing will bring their car #3, when the FIA World Endurance Championship 2019/20 races at Spa Francorchamps and the 24 Hours of Le Mans will be run.

The team had entered a pair of their own LMP1 cars for the whole 2019/20 season, and while car #1 has done all races so far, we have only seen #3 at the opening round at Silverstone in September 2019.

Two of the three drivers will be new to the car, when it returns to racing in April on the Belgian track.

Nathanael Berthon is the only returnee from Silverstone, while he will be joined by FIA WEC rookie Louis Deletraz, and the hugely experienced Romain Dumas as the safe pair of hands, with thousands of laps on his CV.

Berthon has raced for Rebellion Racing since spring 2019, where he did the three final races of the 2018/19 season, and the sole race in fall 2019.

Deletraz has done a lot of single seater racing, most recently in the Formula 2 series, in which he will participate once again in 2020. He did have a single start at the 24 Hours of Zolder in 2015 in a BMW M235, but that’s his only endurance experience so far.

Dumas is almost synonymon with Porsche, but did race for Audi Sport for a couple of years, including a win at the 24 Hours of  Le Mans. He raced for Duqueine Engineering in the  European Le Mans Series in an LMP2 car in 2019, on top of all his Porsche GT commitments.

Car #1 will still be raced by Bruno Senna, Gustavo Menezes and Norman Nato.

The next task for Rebellion Racing will be the Circuit Of The Americas on 23 February 2020.
