Rebellion Racing announces driver line-ups for 2013, expanded program for Heidfeld

Rebellion Racing has announced its driver line-ups for the 12 Hours of Sebring and the first three rounds of the FIA World Endurance Championship, including the Le Mans 24 Hours.

The “3N” trio that prevented Audi’s clean-sweep in last year’s Le Mans 24 Hours by claiming a fourth place finish, will be reunited in the #12 Lola-Toyota. Nick Heidfeld (Germany), Neel Jani (Switzerland) and Nicolas Prost (France) will share driving duties at the 12 Hours of Sebring.

In the sister car, the #13 Lola-Toyota, Andrea Belicchi (Italy) will be joined by ELMS LMP2 Champion Mathias Beche (Switzerland) and CongFu Cheng (China), his team-mate during last year’s FIA WEC 6 Hours of Shanghai win.

The same Rebellion Racing driver squads will also contest the 6 Hours of Silverstone (UK), 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) and Le Mans 24 Hours in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

Rebellion Racing has also confirmed that Nick Heidfeld and Neel Jani will lead the team’s effort in the American Le Mans Series. After Sebring, they will both drive the Lola-Toyota LMP1 at Long Beach and Laguna Seca only a week after racing respectively at Silverstone and Spa.
