Team Rebaque was founded by Formula 1 driver Hector Rebaque. Mexican driver first drove in Formula One in 1977 for Hesketh, and then Rebaque agreed a deal with Team Lotus to buy their 1977 Type 78 model. Rebaque continued with Lotus 79 in the 1979 season but commissioned Penske to build a chassis, the Rebaque HR100. The car designed by Geoff Ferris with input from John Barnard was very similar to Lotus 79. It was completed before the Italian Grand Prix, but failed to qualify in its first attempt at Monza. In the next race, Canadian Grand Prix at Montreal, Rebaque managed to qualify, but retired after 26 laps. Next Grand Prix in USA was the final round of the championship where new car also was out of the start. Hector closed his team at the end of the year and moved to Brabham midway through the following season where he spent two seasons in 1980 and 1981.
