Ready to take a map, a compass and road book, switch off your cell phone, computer or GPS for 8 days then get behind the wheel of an SUV, cross-over or a pick-up truck for a memorable adventure off-road? If you are, then you are ready to take part to Rebelle Rally, sponsored this year also by Pirelli North America.
The Rebelle Rally is the first women’s off-road navigation rally raid in the United States. Traversing over 2,200 kilometers through Nevada and California’s iconic terrain, it is an endurance competition for women requiring precision driving and navigation skills. But, don’t be fooled: it isn't a race for speed. It is a navigation and driving challenge that demands endurance, accurate navigation, and communication. As well as a big dose of love for adventure.
The Rebelle is for 4×4 and Crossover vehicles and takes place on the stunning dirt roads, double tracks, trails, and sand dunes of the vast American West. The route changes every year: this year the event will start on the Hoover Dam October 7, wind its way across rugged terrain in Nevada and California, and finish at Imperial Sand Dunes in California on October 16. There are two categories of vehicle based on their capabilities: X-Cross™ for 2WD and all-wheel drive, and 4WD with two-speed transfer cases.
