By Community | September 17, 2014

Mouser Electronics, allergy | Inc., a leading engineering resource and global distributor of semiconductors and electronic components, has agreed to support the 2014 Rebellion Racing Team at the Circuit of the Americas Lone Star Le Mans race set for September 18-20 in Austin, Texas.

Mouser is sponsoring the 2014 Rebellion Racing team, along with LEMO, a global leader in the design and production of precision custom connection solutions. The team’s primary sponsor is Rebellion, a Swiss manufacturer of high-end watches. Racing a pair of Rebellion R-One Toyota LMP1 cars, the team is competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).

Rebellion Racing won the FIA Endurance LMP1 Team Trophy in 2012 and 2013, and is currently leading the 2014 classification. Rebellion Racing recorded many successes in the USA; the Swiss team won the American fall endurance classic, “Petit Le Mans” in 2012 and 2013 on top of podium finishes at Sebring 12 Hours, Laguna Seca and Long Beach.

Mouser employees enjoyed a special event last week during a “pit stop” visit from the Rebellion team and one of the racecars at the distributor’s worldwide headquarters in the D/FW Metroplex.

“We are very excited to be able to partner with LEMO and Rebellion Racing and show them some Texas hospitality during race week,” said Todd McAtee, Mouser Electronics’ Vice President of Business Development. “In racing, the technology is advancing faster than ever before, which aligns with Mouser’s commitment of being the distributor known for introducing the newest products and latest technologies. The Circuit of the America’s course blends the spirit of Le Mans with the most competitive sports car racing in North America and adds a Texas flair.”
