Rebellion Racing became the final overall winners in American Le Mans Series competition, when Neel Jani, Nicolas Prost and Nick Heidfeld took their Lola B12/60 Toyota to victory in last weekend’s Petit Le Mans, the team’s second-consecutive win in the 1,000-mile/10-hour enduro.

While it marked the end of an era for North American sports car racing, it also signaled the completion of the Anglo-Swiss squad’s successful LMP1 venture with Lola, as it gears up for a new chapter in the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship with a pair of ORECA-built, Toyota-powered Rebellion R-One prototypes.

FOX Sports’ SPEED Blog caught up with team manager Bart Hayden to get an update on the development of the new car, as well as Rebellion’s ambitions for a return to the States on a full-time basis.
