REBELLION Racing will be targeting a strong result whilst facing extremely tough competition at Spa, which is the last race before Le Mans with three factory Audis, two factory Toyotas and a single HPD-Honda.

The Swiss team is very much looking forward to seeing how their cars will perform in the high speed turns with the new aero package that was run for the first time at Silverstone.

The annual Le Mans 24 Hours dress rehearsal should provide a good insight of what to expect at the season’s highlight in la Sarthe next June.

As the weather conditions in the Ardennes are sometimes totally unpredictable more spice will be added to the challenge this weekend.

Spa-Francorchamps, featuring classic corners like Eau Rouge and Blanchimont is the historical home of the Belgian Formula 1 Grand Prix. The track is fast, hilly and twisty and is renowned as one of the drivers' favourite circuits in the world.

REBELLION Racing arrives at Spa as the leader of the FIA Endurance LMP1 Trophy for Private teams with a 25 point lead over Strakka Racing and is keen to go into the next round Le Mans with a bigger points advantage.

Bart Hayden, REBELLION Racing Team Manager: "The Spa track is always a challenge, and it’s a real pleasure to race there, it’s demanding and technical and the drivers love it. We're all feeling confident and upbeat, following our 1-2 in the FIA Endurance LMP1 Trophy at Silverstone we are very much looking forward to seeing our cars performing the same way at Spa. We will concentrate on our own race to target the best position overall."
