Mouser-Backed Vaillante Rebellion Caps Season with Win at Bahrain and LMP2 Team and Drivers’ Trophies

December 5 2017 – The Mouser-sponsored Vaillante Rebellion racing team ended the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship season with a double-podium win at the 6 Hours of Bahrain, securing the LMP2 team and drivers’ trophies. The Vaillante Rebellion No. 31 car, driven by Bruno Senna, Julien Canal and Nicolas Prost, fought back from a 40-second shortfall to edge past Jackie Chan DC Racing and clinch the 2017 FIA Endurance Trophy for LMP2 Teams. The victory also gave Senna and Canal the points necessary to win the FIA Endurance Trophy for LMP2 Drivers.

The Rebellion No. 13 car, piloted by Mathias Beche, Nelson Piquet Jr. and David Heinemeier Hansson, rounded out the podium with an impressive third-place finish. It was the second consecutive double-podium win for the Vaillante Rebellion team, which enjoyed a mirror finish Nov. 5 in Shanghai. Overall it was the team’s eighth podium finish in nine races this season.

 

Mouser is very pleased to partner with valued supplier LEMO, a global leader in the design and production of precision custom connection solutions, to sponsor Vaillante Rebellion for the entire 2017 FIA WEC season. Mouser distributes the full line of quality LEMO connector solutions, including their original push-pull connectors.

 

“All of us at Mouser are ecstatic to celebrate this win with Vaillante Rebellion,” said Todd McAtee, Mouser’s Vice President of Americas Business Development. “The team ran away with the crown in the LMP1 Privateer Class in 2016, and it’s been fantastic watching them climb the ranks to win the tougher LMP2 trophy.”

 

Racing is all about speed and endurance, and Mouser sees racing sponsorships as an innovative way to communicate its performance-driven business model and promote the newest technologies from its manufacturer partners.

 

The road to the LMP2 title began April 16 in England, followed by races in Belgium, France, Germany, Mexico, the U.S., Japan and China, before concluding in Bahrain.
