CONFIDENCE AND HIGH DETERMINATION

After two podium finishes in a row, the REBELLION Racing team is looking forward to concluding the 2010 Le Mans Series at Silverstone with a strong result.

REBELLION Racing have both cars in positions to potentially win the Teams' Championship and their Lola-Rebellions are currently leading the Manufacturers' classification.

With its combination of medium and high-speed corners, the legendary British circuit should suit the V10 Rebellion powered Lolas very well. The REBELLION Racing drivers are all very familiar with Silverstone; Nico Prost and Andrea Belicchi were in position to win the LMS race last year, Neel Jani drove there with the F1 and A1 cars and everyone remembers Jean- Christophe Boullion's pace during last year's LMS race.

REBELLION Racing will face extremely strong opposition at Silverstone. The Le Mans Series Finale will see the comeback of Audi, Peugeot and Aston Martin " factory " teams, since the 1000 km of Silverstone is also the inaugural round of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup.

After two podiums in a row, REBELLION Racing is aiming for another strong result at Silverstone.

Bart Hayden , REBELLION Racing Team Manager:
"We head into what you could call our " home " race with confidence but also realism. We are mathematically in a position to win the Teams' and the Manufacturers' Championships but we will have 1000 km of extremely tough racing against very strong opposition to get through first. There will be more than twice the number of LMP1 cars at this race compared to the last couple of rounds, including three diesel-powered " factory " Peugeot and Audis and two Aston Martins from Prodrive, but we have confidence in the pace of our cars and our determination will be high for the best possible results. "

The 1000 km of Silverstone is scheduled to start at 11:55 am on Sunday, September 12.
