has announced its partnership with the iconic British sports car manufacturer . In September 2017, the brand – which is well known for its place in the history books of the 24 Hours of Le Mans – revealed its latest “Griffith” model. It is fitting for the brand to partner and work with REBELLION Racing for its return to Le Mans.  

 

Following its entry in the LMP1 category, REBELLION Racing chose to reveal the outline shape of its ORECA R-13 prototype at the Geneva Motor Show. At Le Castellet circuit, for the FIA Prologue, the car is unveiled for the first time.

Motul, at the heart of the collaborative alliance, is a mutual partner with REBELLION, TVR, Gibson and the FIA WEC. The creation of a synergy between these different major motorsport names was therefore an obvious move. The ‘Made-in-France’ oil brand and Gibson engines have worked together over the winter to develop an experimental lubricant for use in the LMP1 category. 

 

“We are happy to once again enter the World Endurance Championship alongside partners such as ORECA, Motul and now the iconic TVR brand that all motorsport fans know” said Calim Bouhadra, vice president of REBELLION.

 

“Since winning the title last November we have worked on an ambitious project for this new Super Season, with the creation of a brand-new car and recruitment of a quality driver line up. So, it’s a new ambitious adventure that starts for REBELLION and we’re looking forward to seeing our two R-13s face our competitors.”
