The WEC is not among the immediate plans of Rebellion Racing as has become apparent with the announcement of their sports program of face-to-2017. After leaving the category LMP1-L for the lack of goals and choose to compete in the class LMP2 with the Oreca 07, the swiss team has opted for ‘do the Americas’ and fight you to you with Mazda, Nissan and Cadillac. In this way, Rebellion Racing held the four appointments in the North American Endurance Cup IMSA, that is to say, the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring, the 6 Hours of Watkins Glen and Petit Le Mans.
Bet on the Oreca 07 of face to the season 2017 has opened new options to the a team that by the time has chosen to compete under rules DPi in IMSA -class queen – so in the World of Strength in a second ladder. A decision which also comes backed by a lineup of riders of great quality in the listed Nick Heidfeld, Sebastien Buemi and Neel Jani, this last champion of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and that in principle is linked to the project LMP1 Porsche Motorsport.
Both Nick Heidfeld as Sébastien Buemi compaginarán this programme with the Oreca-07-team Rebellion Racing with their presence in Formula E and in the case of the swiss rider, in addition to what you will do with your role as an official driver of the Toyota Gazoo Racing in the Endurance World. With all and in regards to the team, Rebellion is saved by another ace in the sleeve because it still has a Oreca 07 in the chamber no athletic program specific and in which it is expected that they can compete with common drivers of the team as Alexandre Imperatori, Mathéo Tuscher, or Nico Prost.
