Peugeot teams up with Rebellion Racing for new Hypercar programme
This morning it was announced that Peugeot will partner with Swiss-based team Rebellion Racing for its participation in the FIA World Endurance Championship from 2022 onwards.
Jean-Philippe Imparato, CEO of Automobiles Peugeot, commented: “Peugeot has been behind some of endurance racing’s most memorable moments, with both petrol and diesel power. Today, we are turning our attention to a new adventure founded on hybrid-electrified technology. We were delighted to see how warmly the recent announcement of our participation in the series was welcomed, especially as this exciting shift in sporting and power-unit terms will accompany the launch of Peugeot Sport Engineered cars. I am very enthusiastic about this programme, especially as we will be working in association with a major partner.”
More news about the Peugeot hybrid-powered Hypercar programme is expected in the upcoming months.
