Mid-Summer Interview With REBELLION Racing's Team Manager Bart Hayden


- How will the recent changes in the FIA WEC EoT improve the pace of the Rebellion R-Ones ?
The changes announced by the Endurance Committee following the 24 Hour of Le Mans will allow REBELLION Racing to take a further 10kg of ballast out of the R-One cars and to have a higher fuel usage allowance. These changes are small compared to the pre-Le Mans adjustments where we were able to take 40kg out of the cars. We saw an improvement in laptime at Le Mans of about 2 seconds following the adjustments there, but around the short “sprint” circuits a weight reduction of only 10kg will not make much difference.
