Thanks Beetle

Just to confirm, Rebellion will be debuting the R-One, yes? On the entry list, it still says Lola.

Also, has Millennium Racing closed its doors for the entire season?

Yes rebellion will have the R-One there. They've put the right entry list on their twitter account.

Most probably, they never happened yet

No money ... no race lol ... if fresh money does not come in time for Le Mans from somewhere, its season over i think.

What were they doing to be blocked ? ( they seem more of the same, a simple ORECA-Nissan )

Is that the official poster for Spa? If so its a laugh. Last year's Audi with Mark Webber... How about this year's Porsche 919 in the background? Its not hard to put a TS040 and new R18 up there is it? They need some better PR guys imo. 4 cars on a random pit straight with Webber doesnt scream excitement. Im just being picky.

Well, the Porsche was only shown a couple weeks before the poster(Mar. 21 from what I've gathered) so they probably didn't have time to add it and Audi and Toyota didn't show their new cars until after the poster was shown.

In other words, it would have been quite hard to put a TS040 or R18 on it.

With Audi the only team running a Spa specific set up it shows that they need the race win. If they lose again to Toyota it will really compromise their WEC title ambitions.

The website of the WEC now says that there will be 1 R-One and 1 Lola voor Rebellion. To bad they won't bring 2, but then again it's always nice to go back to back testing and compare data between the old and the new car.

At least on their twitter feed, they speak of R-One's plural and show 2 on their provisional entry list- https://twitter.com/RebellionRacing/...27219891163136 but thats from the 24th! Things may have changed.

I would have done the same thing...

It would be sort of amusing if the slightly favourable specs (=more towards ALMS trim) the ACO gave for Lola this year proved to be considerably quicker than the R-One

Anyway if we trust that list they'll now have lovely beauty of a car from the old P1 era and also rather nice looking one from the new era

TBH as much as I want to see the R-One, it could be a wise decision to do the same for LM... have one unproven model and one proven. In any case they'll be playing second fiddle to the factories so having at least one reliable chassis could come in handy
