With the aero development freeze on LMP1 non-hybrids during the 24 Hours of Le Mans now expired, non-hybrid teams will now be able to homologate an unlimited number of aero revisions for the remainder of the WEC Super Season.
Rebellion team manager, Bart Hayden is keen to prove the efficiency of the car at the Northamptonshire track.
“Since the last race which was at Le Mans, there has been a change in the Equivalence of Technology parameters which mean the Rebellion Racing R-13 LMP1 cars will have more performance at Silverstone”, said Hayden.
“We also have some higher down-force aero components on our cars, so we are expecting to be competitive at the front of the race. It’s been a long time since Le Mans, so we are glad to be back racing again.”
The revised EoT criteria will also see normally aspirated-engined non-hybrid LMP1’s benefit from an increased fuel flow of up to 115 kg/h with an additional,15 kg drop in weight. The resurfacing at SIlverstone last year will mean that tyre management will also be key to unlocking performance this weekend
Two months after the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Swiss Team is more motivated than ever.
“After a long break since Le Mans, I’m really looking forward to getting back in the car at Silverstone”, said number 1 driver Bruno Senna.
“It will be the first time we race our Rebellion machine in anger with the new High Downforce kit and I hope the revised EoT brings the fight closer to the Toyotas!”
Practice for the 6 Hours of Silverstone commences 12:15 local time.
