SEBAH RACING emmanuel collard

Sebah Automotive will again be managing and operating the two LMP1 prototypes during 2011 that are running under the Rebellion Racing team name.  The 2011 Rebellion Racing programme is an evolution of the partnership between Sebah, Speedy Racing and Rebellion, which sees the team move forward into its fourth year together.

In 2008, racing as “Speedy Racing Team Sebah” the team ran one Lola coupe in the LMP2 category in the full season of the Le Mans Series and at the 24 Heures du Mans.  Their best result in 2008 was a podium finish in second place at Barcelona.

In 2009 Speedy Racing Team Sebah stepped up by not only continuing to run the LMP2 car, but also a Lola-Aston Martin car in the LMP1 class.  The LMP2 car finished 2nd at Le Mans, 2nd in the Le Mans Series Championship and won the Michelin Green X Challenge.  The LMP1 car finished 5th and as the highest placed privateer entry in the Le Mans Series.

In 2010 the team renamed itself to “Rebellion Racing”.  The progression of the team continued as they moved completely into the LMP1 category with two cars.  Using a “Rebellion” engine that was developed in partnership with Judd (Engine Developments Ltd), the team ran two cars in the full Le Mans Series and at the 24 Heures du Mans.  The team had three podiums in the year, third place at Le Castellet and second at the Algarve and the Hungaroring.  Rebellion Racing finished in third place in the LMP1 Teams Classification.

For 2011, Rebellion Racing is partnering with Toyota as they return to endurance racing.  The relationship with Lola also continues with the two 2011 cars being the latest specification LMP1 coupe from the Huntingdon, England based marque.  Following the untimely passing of Hugh Hayden at the end of 2010, Sebah is now led by Hugh’s son Bart Hayden.  The progression of the team in the previous seasons is continuing again as will run one car in the 2011 Intercontinental Le Mans Cup.
