TVR returns to endurance racing with Rebellion Racing

5 April 2018

REBELLION Racing has announced a partnership with the iconic British sports car manufacturer TVR to take on the upcoming World Endurance Championship.

In September 2017, TVR – which is well known for its place in the history books of the 24 Hours of Le Mans – revealed its latest “Griffith” model. REBELLION meanwhile, chose to reveal the outline shape of its ORECA R-13 prototype at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and is set to fully unveil the car at the FIA WEC Prologue this weekend.

Motul is also a significant part of the tie-up between both REBELLION and TVR, as well as being  linked to both engine supplier Gibson and the FIA WEC. The creation of a synergy between these different major motorsport names was therefore an obvious move. The ‘Made-in-France’ oil brand and Gibson engines have worked together over the winter to develop an experimental lubricant for use in the LMP1 category.

The TVR name will return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans with both REBELLIONs in the premier category of the World Endurance Championship. The companies share common values on and off track, which is the reason why REBELLION Racing and TVR have decided to take up this new challenge together for the 2018-2019 Super Season.

“Endurance racing is a key part of TVR’s DNA, and our role as the primary automotive partner of REBELLION Racing TVR gives us a great opportunity to return to the sport for the first time in 13 years,” explained TVR chairman Les Edgar. “It also allows TVR to work with a competitive racing team and apply the output to the development and production of not only TVR road cars, but also our future one-make series and track cars. In this respect, the opportunity to work alongside Gibson, ORECA and Motul is fantastic.”

REBELLION vice president, Calim Bouhadra, meanwhile added: “We are happy to once again enter the World Endurance Championship alongside partners such as ORECA, Motul and now the iconic TVR brand that all motorsport fans know.”
