On Thursday October 7th, the 6th Edition of the Rebelle Rally kicked off with Tech Inspection at the iconic Hoover Dam. A full roster of 52 teams took part in the longest competitive off-road rally in the United States. It is also the first all-women’s off-road navigation rally in the U.S.
 



The ten-day event includes eight stages and covers 2,275 kilometers of America’s finest off-road terrain across Nevada and California. The endurance competition is based on precision driving and navigating - not fastest speed. The competition is innovative and unique, using maps, compass, roadbooks, and strategy - known as Rebelle Format. GPS and other electronic devices such as cell phones are strictly prohibited and sealed for eight days.
 


This year, teams hail from 92 cities, 24 states and provinces, and five countries around the world. Each team consists of a driver, navigator, and their vehicle, with no personal support crews allowed.



Competitors range in age from 21 to 73 years old. 53 competitors are returning Rebelles and 51 are new to the rally. Due to the challenging format, a Rookie of the Year trophy is awarded to the highest ranking team with two competitors who have not previously competed in the rally.
 


By design, the Rebelle Rally competition vehicles are stock manufacturer trucks and SUVs - not tube chassis race cars. There are two classes - 4x4 and X-Cross™. This year there are 42 4x4 entries which are defined as four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer case and ten X-Cross™ vehicles from the popular AWD and Crossover SUV segment.  


 


4x4 Entries


Historically, the highest number of vehicle entries are Jeep Wranglers. This year there are 18 Jeeps entered representing both privateer and manufacturer teams. 13 Toyotas, including two manufacturer teams of Toyota engineers, five Fords including two new Broncos, a team of sisters in a Ford Ranger, and another team of sisters returning for their second rally in their vintage 1969 Bronco.


Two Nissan entries are registered including the all-new Frontier pickup. Two Land Rover teams include the LR4 and the new Defender 90. A Lexus GX 460 and 4x4 Porsche rounds out this large class.



X-Cross™ Entries


Nine entries complete the X-Cross™ class for all-wheel drive and two-wheel drive vehicles. Entries include the Porsche Cayenne S, two privateer Subaru entries, the Mitsubishi Outlander with a team of military combat veterans, a Honda Ridgeline piloted by a team of Honda engineers, and a Ford Bronco Sport.





Electrified Designation Grows



The mission of the Rebelle Rally is to provide a proving ground for people, products, and stock manufacturer vehicles, and that applies to electrified vehicles as well. The Electrified Designation launched in 2020 and returns in 2021 with six vehicles participating.


The remote, long-distance course puts EVs and PHEVs to the test competing in the same class the vehicle is designed for. The rally goes further by working with Renewable Innovations to rapid charge the vehicles with renewable hydrogen power.



Fully electric vehicles include the Rivian R1T (returning for the second year) and the Volkswagen ID.4. Four PHEVs compete - three Jeep 4xe vehicles and two Kia Sorento PHEVs.




The Course


The course is kept confidential to the competitors, however they know that this year’s rally course consists of four basecamps and one Marathon where teams self-camp without mechanical assistance. Traditionally, the route is carefully designed to cover a wide range of terrain types, vistas and elevation changes - from high mountain passes, high desert and stunning valleys to the vast Mojave Desert.


This year is no exception and includes three full stages entirely new to the rally with several stages building upon previously unused routes. The final stage takes place on October 15th in the famed Imperial Sand Dunes (Glamis), the largest sand dune complex in the United States.



Stage seven, powered by TOTAL Chaos Fabrication, lives up to its name as the challenging 120-kilometer course in soft sand peaks shakes up the final standings.



The Live Show Presented by Lexus has already started with multiple shows daily. Watch live at www.rebellerally.com.
