Rebellion Racing has added Stephane Sarrazin (pictured above) as its fourth driver for January’s Rolex 24 at Daytona. The race marks a return to North American racing for the Swiss-based World Endurance LMP1 privateer team, which announced last month that it would enter a single ORECA 07 LMP2 in IMSA’s Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup races next season.
Frenchman Sarrazin has an accomplished record in American endurance races, having won Petit Le Mans on three occasions. He joins already Neel Jani, Sebastien Buemi and Nick Heidfeld in Rebellion’s Rolex 24 line-up.
“I am very happy to be part of this new challenge with Rebellion Racing at Daytona, one of the biggest endurance race events,” said Sarrazin. “I look forward to starting with the team and the new car. The driver line-up is high level and I think we have all the assets to do a good job.”
Rebellion, which won races in its previous North American racing stint in the 2012 and 2013 American Le Mans Series, will operate its ORECA-Gibson out of a shop near Atlanta, Ga.
