Peugeot and Rebellion will join forces to take on the FIA World Endurance Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours.
From 2022, the companies will contest the FIA WEC in the all-new Hypercar class using hybrid technologies. Their association is driven by their resolve to make Peugeot’s commitment to endurance racing and Rebellion’s move into the prestigious championship’s new era a success.
“The programme will kick off in 2022 and we are extremely happy to be teaming up with one of endurance racing’s big names. Rebellion Racing’s experience of the FIA WEC will be a big asset as we put together the strongest possible team for our programme, and this was corroborated by the team’s recent victory in Shanghai,” said Jean-Marc Finot, head of PSA Motorsport. “The roles will be divided as a function of our respective competencies and all of us will be based at Versailles-Satory – near Paris, France.”
Calim Bouhadra, the boss at Rebellion added, “We are young, ambitious and ‘Rebels’! I am proud to see that we share the same values as Peugeot! The technical know-how of Peugeot Sport combined with the experience of Rebellion Racing will be decisive as we start this new era of endurance with ambitions clearly displayed.”
