Formula 2 race victor Oliver Rowland and 2015 ELMS LMP3 Champion Charlie Robertson are the first two drivers confirmed by the team. The first, 21-year-old Charlie Robertson, is no stranger to success with Ginetta, having raced the company's cars since entering the Ginetta Junior championship at the age of 14 and winning the title in 2012.
Oliver Rowland meanwhile, has the Formula Renault 3.5 title from 2015 to his name plus several podium finishes in GP2 and a race win last season in the new F2 Championship.
Lawrence Tomlinson, Ginetta Chairman; "I'm delighted to confirm that CEFC TRSM Racing will be running a two-car effort in the FIA WEC and Le Mans 24 Hours". We have taken him from a 14-year-old experiencing his very first vehicle race in the Ginetta Junior Championship, all the way to the pinnacle of worldwide motorsport, and that's something we strive to do for every one of our drivers. Robertson calls his career so far a "testament to the opportunities and support Ginetta offers to drivers" and describes the move into LMP1 as fulfilling a dream.
Despite leaving the LMP2 class behind for the 2018/19 FIA World Endurance Championship Super-season in favour of LMP1, Rebellion Racing has announced they will field an entry in the LMP2 class of the European Le Mans Series in 2018, in conjunction with Algarve Pro Racing. "I can't wait to get started with the team to ensure we get the best out of the package and moving forward seeing if we can challenge for some fantastic results in the championship".
With 2017 WEC champions Porsche exiting the sport at the end of last season, the #1 plate has been picked up by last year's LMP2 champions Rebellion upon its return to the premier category.
The name of their third driver will be announced in due course, although Richard Bradley is rumoured to be in contention.
