REBEL NEWS Read the
latest Rebel Racing happenings!!
Here some details of Rebel Racing in the UK.
The main concept of the REBEL cars, is that all the cars are equal. Cars are
supplied from the factory with engines sealed and other modifications are not allowed. So
far driver have been attracted from a variety of other formula's. Some drivers own their
own cars whilst others just "arrive and drive" hire cars. These hire cars and
during 1996 14 cars were available this way, cuts out the need for a driver to have
transport or repair facilities (the hire charge covers the cost of delivering the car to
the track and any damage).
The rebels race on quarter mile oval tracks at such places as Coventry, Wimbledon,
Ipswich, Baarlo (Holland), Birmingham, Arena plus many more. The majority of the tracks
are tarmac but they also race on shale. The cars are built by Tamoco Limited who are based
in Tamworth, they can be contacted on tele.

available for around £6,000 or can be hired on a per meeting basis for approx £200 (all
prices should be checked with Tamoco).
Well there you have it, Rebels are an attempt to stop the "cheque book" racer taking all the trophies, the "man in the street" can buy a complete car that will be the same as every one else's. Alternatively he can hire a car, perhaps just doing one meeting so that he will have something to talk about down the pub. Mind you anyone trying the Rebels could well finish up hooked on Oval racing, lets hope so.
