Rebellion Will End Racing Program After 24 Hours Of Le Mans
After 13 years in motorsports, Rebellion Racing will stop all its racing activities after a final appearance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.
Alexandre Pesci, Président of Rebellion Corporation, expained, "Motorsport has been a great resource for Rebellion. The circuits have been exceptional showcases and an important sounding board for our Brand with a very wide audience. The returns on investment of these activities in the motorsports business have been more than satisfactory. We are giving ourselves time to redefine the contours of our business, but the effects of this decision will be immediate for the racing department as soon as the WEC season ends. These are not easy decisions to make and we are saddened that we will not be able to meet our past commitments for the years to come."
Calim Boudhadra, CEO of Rebellion Corporation, said, "The Rebellion Corporation brand strategy must change! The 24 Hours of Le Mans 2020 will be our last race and we will make it a point of honour to end the endurance adventure on a positive note and enrich an already excellent record of achievements. We would like to thank our partners for having trusted us and for having taken up so many challenges together with a rebellious spirit. As a private team, we are proud to have written a page in motorsport. I am convinced that the Peugeot brand's challenge in WEC will be a great success in the future, which I regret not being able to attend."
Rebellion Racing has been one of the major players in endurance racing since the creation of the FIA WEC Championship in 2012, and one of the only private teams to have challenged the domination of official manufacturers. The team has been victorious in prestigious races in the United States and has also tackled the dunes of the Dakar.
