The Anglo-Swiss Rebellion LMP1 squad will race full-time in next year's American Le Mans Series in the wake of its victory in the season-ending Petit Le Mans enduro at Road Atlanta last month.
Rebellion Racing, which took the P1 privateers' title in this year's FIA World Endurance Championship, will field at least one of its fleet of Lola-Toyota B12/60 coupes in the full ALMS schedule. It has not ruled out continuing in the WEC and plans to field two cars in the centerpiece of the series, the Le Mans 24 Hours.
"The ALMS represents a good opportunity to win races and the plan is to do the full season, but we are not being specific on the number of cars at this stage," explained team manager Bart Hayden. "We could race in the WEC again. We have three cars and entering three in the ALMS would not be realistic, so it could be a case of running two in one and one in the other."
Hayden would not be drawn on drivers for the ALMS ahead of any official announcement of its 2013 program.
"We are not making any announcement on drivers at this stage," he said. "It is more likely that they will be top-line rather than paying."
This year, Rebellion ran one car in the WEC for Neel Jani and Nicolas Prost and one for Andrea Belicchi and Harold Primat. Belicchi joined Jani and Prost in the single-car entry at Petit.
