Timing is key for Manor Racing. It is only natural, therefore, that it is partnering with Rebellion Timepieces, with whom it shares an obsession for every last detail and a love of technological advancement.
It was an engineer keen to meld watchmaking, high technology and motor racing who founded Rebellion. The brand embraces modern design, material and technologies, while preserving time honoured horological craftsmanship. Alongside watchmaking it has fielded its own endurance race team, Rebellion Racing, a private team that set out to challenge the established factory outfits.
Abdulla Boulsien, Manor Racing:
“Rebellion is no stranger to racing; the guys know the scene and they live and breathe motorsport. We love Rebellion’s bold disregard, but healthy respect for, what has gone before; it has no fear when it comes to standing out and being different. We’re going to have some fun together.”
Philippe Dubois, CEO, Rebellion Timepieces:
“Rebellion and Manor Racing share so many traits: both are upstarts in a way, challenging received wisdom and trying new ways while respecting the old. It makes perfect sense to work together and we’re excited to be part of the team’s F1 adventure as its official timing partner.”
Rebellion Timepieces’ ‘watch’ graphics will adorn the race gloves of drivers Pascal Wehrlein and Rio Haryanto and its logo will appear on the wing mirrors of the MRT05, Manor Racing’s challenger for the 2016 season. Rebellion Timepieces will engineer large-scale clocks for Manor Racing’s operations centre in Banbury and within the team’s garage at 21 Grands Prix. Most excitingly, Rebellion will create a custom-designed Manor Racing Wraith timepiece, available as a limited edition to buy.
