Rebel Rock Racing will be making its return to IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge competition this weekend at Virginia International Raceway for the Biscuitville Grand Prix



. The veteran driver pairing of Robin Liddell and Andrew Davis will share the driving duties behind the wheel of the No. 71 Rebel Rock Racing/Urban Grid/MVP Capital Camaro GT4.R in Saturday’s 2-hour event (live stream via imsa.tv at 2:15 PM ET).
 


Now under the ownership of Frank Depew, Rebel Rock Racing is looking to make a strong return to competition as Liddell and Davis team up for the remaining three races of the IMSA season as the team prepares for an anticipated two-car effort in 2019.
 


Having historically raced Porsches for several years, Rebel Rock has moved to the Camaro GT4.R platform, as the fabled bowtie makes its first IMSA Continental Tire GS class start of the 2018 season at VIR.
 


“Rebel Rock Racing is very excited to be returning to race action in IMSA, and particularly to be doing so at my home track, VIR,” said Depew, who is also an avid vintage racer. “We are focused on being fully prepared for a two-car effort starting at Daytona in 2019, and these next three races will be key for those preparations.




 We are happy to be running the Camaro GT4.R and feel like we’ve got the potential to have a top-level program so everyone is looking forward to getting to the track this weekend.”
 


 Having competed in both the GS and ST classes through the years, Rebel Rock Racing scored a podium finish at VIR in 2014, and will look to bring a solid result in its first race outing since Daytona in 2017.
 



While best known for his efforts behind the wheel, Liddell has an established resume as a team manager, and has been putting that experience to work behind the scenes at Rebel Rock Racing.
 



Competing on board a Camaro GT4.R in 2017, Liddell is confident in what the Chevy Camaro has to offer and combined with a strong Pratt & Miller relationship, the No. 71 Rebel Rock Racing/Urban Grid Camaro GT4.R will be sure to make a statement at VIR.
 



Liddell and Davis not only have three years as co-drivers under their belts, but they have also had major success competing in multiple generations of Camaros.
 


“Frank (DePew) has a very clear vision of what he would like Rebel Rock to become as an organization, and as a result the team has gone through quite a transformation since we last raced,” said Liddell.




 “So it is tremendously exciting to be going back to VIR for what is a debut of sorts. Having Andrew (Davis) as my co-driver will give us the chance to get up to speed very quickly. The IMSA Continental Tire series is incredibly competitive but we’ve been working to put the right people in the right place, and we know the Camaro is quite capable.”
 


Competing with the GT.R, Z/28.R and GT4.R platforms, Liddell and Davis are familiar with the strength that comes with the Chevrolet Camaro.
 


"I am extremely excited to be making a return to the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series,” said Davis.  “I want to thank Frank Depew and Robin Liddell for awarding me the opportunity to join the team.  E



veryone involved has been working so hard to ensure the return of Rebel Rock Racing will be a success. We have all the right personnel in place, and a tremendous machine in the new Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R.   We understand the challenge of running up front, however we feel that competing against the best is the most direct way to ultimate success."
 


The duo has an outstanding record at VIR including back to back Rolex GT class wins in 2008 and 2009, a big run to second place in 2014 after starting from 21st as well as taking third in IMSA WeatherTech GTD competition onboard an Audi R8 LMS in 2016.
 


"Robin Liddell and I have both a professional and personal relationship that spans nearly two decades,” said Davis. “It's a true honor to have an opportunity to once again share the car with him.  We have enjoyed a great deal of success including victories and championships in multiple disciplines of the sport.  I can't wait to see what's in store next!"
 



The Biscuitville Grand Prix weekend will kick off with practice and qualifying on Friday, August 17, with the race slated for a 2:15 PM ET green flag on Saturday, August 18.
