Rebellion Racing has announced its return to LMP1 in the World Endurance Championship with a driver line-up including former Le Mans 24 Hours winners Andre Lotterer and Neel Jani.
The Anglo-Swiss squad has confirmed the switch back to P1 from LMP2 for the 2018/19 WEC superseason with the all-star driver line-up predicted by Autosport.
In addition to former Porsche LMP1 drivers Lotterer and Jani, Rebellion will run team regulars Mathias Beche and Bruno Senna and P1 newcomers Thomas Laurent and Gustavo Menezes.
The line-ups for Rebellions two-car entry have yet to be confirmed.
Rebellion is returning to P1, in which it dominated the privateer class from the rebirth of the WEC in 2012, after a single, successful season in LMP2 that yielded the drivers' title for Senna and Julien Canal.
The announcement stated that Rebellion would unveil its 2018/19 LMP1 contender at the Geneva motor show next March.
No mention of the constructor has so far been made, but it is expected that the car will be called a Rebellion and designed and built by the French ORECA organisation that produced the R-One of 2014-16.
Three-time Le Mans winner Lotterer said: "I'm very happy to join the champion Rebellion team.
"The LMP1 project is very exciting and to be able to go on with the Le Mans 24 Hours and the WEC challenge is something I did not want to miss.
"I am motivated and looking forward to have a great time with great people there!"
Jani, who is returning to Rebellion after his four-year stint in Porsche's P1 squad, added: "I'm looking forward to coming back where my endurance career started nine years ago.
"Rebellion Racing played a huge role in my career and also helped me become a factory driver for Porsche.
"When Porsche stopped in LMP1, it was clear for me that I wanted to race again for Rebellion."
Both Lotterer and Jani, who remain under contract to Porsche, have found seats in the 2017/18 Formula E Championship, but there are no calendar clashes that would preclude them driving in any of the five WEC races next year.
