Mouser Electronics announces to be a sponsor of Rebellion Racing again – as the team kicks off the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship Series April 16 in the United Kingdom at the 6 hours of Silverstone.
Expectations are sought to be very high after the team’s spectacular winning season last year.
The Rebellion No. 13 R-One car ran away with the crown in the LMP1 Privateer Class, racking up a massive 193 points, 84 more than the second-place challenger.
The Mouser-backed team scored a 1-2 finish in 2015 for Private LMP1 Teams. Mouser Electronics will again partner with valued supplier LEMO, to sponsor Rebellion Racing for the 2017 season.
Mouser distributes LEMO’s high quality full line of LEMO connector solutions including their original push-pull connectors.
“We are very proud of the Rebellion team and its performance last year. They were incredible,” said Todd McAtee, Vice President, Americas’ Business Development, Mouser Electronics. “This sponsorship is a good fit for us. Just as Rebellion excels on the track, Mouser consistently excels in distributing the newest, most advanced, high-quality electronic components from our manufacturer partners like LEMO. We take pride in quickly delivering accurate orders with best-in-class customer service.”
After the season kickoff at the 6 Hours of Silverstone, the series heads to Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, on May 6. From there, the series travels to the famed track at Le Mans, France, June 17 and 18; Nürburgring, Germany, on July 16; Mexico City on September 3; Fuji, Japan, on October 15; and Shanghai, China, on November 5. The 2017 season ends in Sakhir, Bahrain, on November 18.
