Michel Vaillant makes grand comeback at Le Mans 24 Hours with Motul and Rebellion Racing
02/02/2017 - 18h00
This year, Editions Graton, Motul and Swiss team Rebellion Racing are joining forces to bring Michel Vaillant back to life for the Le Mans 24 Hours and throughout the FIA World Endurance Championship.
The three partners have come up with a highly original concept at the crossroads of fiction and reality to pay tribute to the most famous of all fictional racing drivers. For the first time in twenty years and to honour the occasion, a new cartoon album will be released on 26th May and a living breathing Vaillante Rebellion team will be ready to race in two exclusive “Vaillantes” at the Circuit de la Sarthe for the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours.
The Vaillante Rebellion team will be on the starting line at each round of the WEC in two exclusive “Vaillantes”, an ORECA 07 Gibson LMP2 powered by a Gibson V8 engine lubricated with Motul 300V 5W30 Power Racing. It will be specially decked out in the colours of Vaillant for the 24 Hours of Le Mans and in subsequent WEC races.
Mathias Beche, David Heinemeier Hansson and Nelson Piquet Jr. will carry the No.13 while Julien Canal, Nicolas Prost and Bruno Senna's car will be No.31.
