Rebellion Racing has hinted at the possibility of continuing their endurance racing program as a GT3 outfit after their exit from the World Endurance Championship after the current season.
With the introduction of the new LMDh and Le Mans Hypercar slated for the start of next season, Rebellion, which is a Swiss watch-making manufacturer, could not justify the costs to compete in the class as a privateer action.
But the as reported by sportscar365, Rebellion has recently been confirmed as the official timekeeper of the GT World Challenge and is looking to use this sponsorship as to enter the GT3 program.
“First, we need to at first see what is going on with the economic crisis and after, looking at what the different championships are going to propose us,” said Rebellion CEO Calim Bouhadra.
“We are involved in GT racing as a new partner for GT World Challenge. We want to do it as well as possible.
“We have a strong partnership with GT World Challenge and SRO, so for sure I know we are going to do something to create a team.
“There is nothing certain, but I know that we are entrepreneurial and don’t want to just stay as a timekeeper. We are probably going to bring our value in this championship, and why not create a team to compete?”
Earlier this season Rebellion won their first ever ‘on-track’ LMP1 victory at the 4 Hours of Shanghai becoming the privateer team in WEC history to get a pole position and win.
