Rebellion Reveals LMP1 Driver Pairings

Rowland gets WEC/Le Mans LMP1 drive with Manor

Two drivers have been confirmed at this stage. Ginetta Development Driver Robertson will pilot one vehicle, with single-seater star Rowland behind the wheel of the second. The first, 21-year-old Charlie Robertson, is no stranger to success with Ginetta, having raced the company's cars since entering the Ginetta Junior championship at the age of 14 and winning the title in 2012. He graduated into prototypes for 2015, claiming the inaugural European Le Mans Series LMP3 championship alongside Olympic cycling legend Sir Chris Hoy.

"I see it as a kind of trust and I appreciate it a lot".

"We are very happy to welcome Oliver to the team, we have followed him closely over the years and have been very impressed with his performances", he said. Robertson calls his career so far a "testament to the opportunities and support Ginetta offers to drivers" and describes the move into LMP1 as fulfilling a dream.

Rebellion Racing has named Andre Lotterer, Neel Jani and Bruno Senna as the driver line-up of its #1 Rebellion R-13 as it returns to the LMP1 class for the 2018-19 World Endurance Championship. Endurance racing is a new experience for me and it will create a fresh challenge, but I am really looking forward to working with the team and driving such an incredible vehicle. "I can't wait to get started with the team to ensure we get the best out of the package and moving forward seeing if we can challenge for some fantastic results in the championship".

"For this season, we want to follow on from what Rebellion Racing did in last years in WEC championship", said Cox. Although this will be his first season in sports cars we have every confidence that he will adapt to LMP1 very quickly.

Rebellion will begin its preparations for the season over the next few months before the WEC Prologue at Circuit Paul Ricard on April 6-7.

The name of their third driver will be announced in due course, although Richard Bradley is rumoured to be in contention.
