ORECA have confirmed that the new car in design and build for ’s contender is to be named the Rebellion R13, after the team’s longstanding racing number.

 

ORECA will oversee the engineering of the car alongside Sebah Engineering, who will continuing in a support and logistics role. 

 

The LMP2 evolution chassis will be powered by normally aspirated Gibson V8 engines.

 

“To design this new LM P1 prototype is a wonderful challenge” ORECA Group’s CEO Hugues de Chaunac said. “When the design bureau began developing the ORECA 07, we really wanted to move up to the next level, one step higher compared to the ORECA 05. The successes achieved last year really motivated and convinced us to now tackle this highly competitive main category. Fitted with an atmospheric engine, this LM P1 will face a hard task against the Hybrid cars. But the Rebellion R 13 will be a very determined challenger.”

 

Rebellion are set to receive their cars shortly before the FIA WEC Prologue test at Paul Ricard.
