As REBELLION Racing competes at the 12 Hours of Sebring, its drivers will be carrying the dates of Baselworld 2017 on their helmets to promote the upcoming launch of two new watches by sister company REBELLION Timepieces. Baselworld takes place 23-30 March in Basel (SUI), and is hailed by many as the biggest trade show in the watch industry.
The official launch of the watches will happen on 22 March during Baselworld’s press day. Also on display will be the Predator 2.0 series that was launched at SIHH in January. The three-piece series is composed of a GMT, a Regulator Power Reserve and a Regulator Tourbillon available in titanium, black DLC titanium and rose gold.
REBELLION Timepieces was launched in 2008 on the shores of Lake Geneva. Their timepieces are crafted in extremely limited quantities, with exclusive proprietary movements and precision-engineered cases. All research, development and production takes place in Switzerland, where the very highest standards are both expected and obtained. Many characteristics of the watch are directly inspired by the Le Mans Prototype cars raced by REBELLION Racing.

REBELLION Racing continues its implication in Endurance by a LMP2 car in the European Le Mans Series. The ORECA 07 will be composed of an ambitious crew with Thomas Laurent at the wheel.
After ending the 2017 season with the title of LMP2 World Champion, the REBELLION Racing team will return to the top category of the World Endurance Championship next season, just one year after leaving it.
Vaillante REBELLION finished the last race of the 2017 FIA WEC season with both cars on the podium and the 2017 FIA World Endurance Champion title in the LMP2 category with their #31 Oreca-Gibson 07 car.
