Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Former F1 racer Bruno Senna will join Re­bel­lion Rac­ing for the full FIA World En­durance Cham­pi­onship this year after the team’s move into the LMP2 class.

Re­bel­lion has long been a pi­o­neer of pri­va­teer LMP1 cars, but for this year has or­dered two ORECA-GIB­SON 07s in­stead. Senna will move across from the RGR Sport team to join Nel­son Pi­quet Jr, Ni­co­las Prost and Mathias Beche on Re­bel­lion’s driver ros­ter. Ex­act teams have yet to be de­cided.

Senna, 33, said: “I’m so ex­cited to be part of Re­bel­lion Rac­ing’s line-up for the WEC. The team re­ally has strived to get the most com­pet­i­tive line-up pos­si­ble to chal­lenge for the cham­pi­onship, as well as win­ning the Le Mans 24 Hours in LMP2.”

Re­bel­lion’s first car will also run in this month’s Day­tona 24 Hours, with the all-star line-up of Nick Hei­d­feld, Neel Jani, Se­bastien Buemi and Stephane Sar­razin driv­ing.
