The 2017 Vaillante Rebellion liveries is presented for the first time to the general public at Le Club des V in Brussels.
During the press conference of the Spa-Francorchamps meeting in FIA WEC (4, 5 and 6 May), motorsport journalists and influencers were also invited by all the actors of the project Vaillante Rebellion (Motul, Graton Editeur, REBELLION Racing).
The hero of the most famous car racing comic book is back in 2017 for his sixtieth birthday. In addition to the release of a new volume entitled "Rebellion", which will be published by Graton on June 2, the "Vaillante" team will make their comeback to the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the first time since 1997, with his new liveries.
The showcar with Vaillante Rebellion colors (R-One LMP1 of 2016), specific creation inspired by the album, will then be exhibited in the paddock of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit throughout the meeting.

The FIA WEC Super Season is poised to start and REBELLION Racing has announced its partnership with the iconic British sports car manufacturer TVR. In September 2017, the brand – which is well known for its place in the history books of the 24 Hours of Le Mans – revealed its latest "Griffith" model. It is fitting for the brand to partner and work with REBELLION Racing for its return to Le Mans.
The REBELLION Racing team will engage two Oreca REBELLION R-13s in the World Endurance Championship with balanced and complementary crews. Both cars will be equipped with a Gibson engine and Michelin tires.
