Mouser-Backed Vaillante Rebellion Heads to Bahrain at Top of FIA WEC LMP2 Standings

 

November 16, 2017 – The Mouser-sponsored Vaillante Rebellion racing team scored a spectacular double-podium victory Nov. 5 at the 6 Hours of Shanghai. The victory at Shanghai is the second consecutive first-place finish for the No. 31 car and marks the team’s seventh podium finish in eight races this season.

The No. 31 car, driven by Bruno Senna, Nicolas Prost and Julien Canal, took first place, while the No. 13, driven by Nelson Piquet Jr., Mathias Beche and David Heinemeier Hansson, finished third in the LMP2 category. The win moves the No. 31 car to the top of the LMP2 team classification of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) with only one race to go.

 

With Senna behind the wheel, the Mouser-backed No. 31 car dominated the first 90 minutes of the race. Both cars overtook the Jackie Chan DC Racing No. 38 car in the last hour of the race to claim the first and third podium spots.

 

“Shanghai proved to be a thrilling race from the start to the extraordinary finish,” said Todd McAtee, Mouser’s Vice President of Americas Business Development. “The Vaillante Rebellion team has been exceptional all season, and all of us at Mouser are cheering them on as they prepare for Bahrain.”

 

Mouser is proud 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.

 

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 Mouser-backed Rebellion team ran away with the crown in the LMP1 Privateer Class in 2016.

 

The 2017 FIA WEC season ends Nov. 18 at the 6 Hours of Bahrain. The No. 31 car will defend its four-point lead in the LMP2 standings on the 15-turn, 3.36-mile (5.4-km) course at the Bahrain International Circuit.
