The Revolution Gathers Pace and Strength

After tens of thousands of testing and development kilometres, performance has increased, and two more racers have joined the Revolution board.

Michelin Le Mans Cup podium winner and sports prototype gentleman racer, Marcello Marateotto, brings his customer experience to the group of racers on the board, along with long-term business partner and Le Mans and prototype racer, Michel Frey.

Michel is a perfect foil to Marcello’s top gentleman drivers experience. He adds semi-professional experience on many levels, ranging from F3 through GTs and six Le Mans 24hr LMP2 drives as well as a multitude of endurance races.

Together, they bring the management experience and board influence to an unprecedented level in sports race car manufacturing in recent times.

 

“Having been through all steps in the racing ladder, I believe it’s the perfect car on the road to Le Mans and back for owner drivers racing up to LMP3 and above,” said Marcello.  “It sits comfortably above the current national level sports prototype cars, offering a very similar LMP3 experience without the high costs.”

And Michel added; “it takes just a lap or two to understand how good the Revolution is, and just how much expertise has gone into its conception and execution.”

 

Phil Abbott, CEO and prolific sports racer manufacturer said, “To have Marcello and Michel join us is a huge benefit to the company. It continues the position of only racers on the board.”

“Straight away from the first meeting, they were able to bring fresh racers’ vision to the products and future plans.”

“Together, we decided to enhance the already class-leading aero design to add more downforce to the performance package.”

“We have considerable plans to make Revolution the go-to series for speed and safety.”

With total support of the already-started Sports Prototype Cup in the UK, a fledgling European series for 2020 at top grand prix circuits, and test and races in Sebring, USA from December and January, Revolution are building pace with agents and outlets in Germany, France, Italy, Sweden and USA as well as the UK.
