This year’s Honda team is comprised of Hillary Tate, the bright eyed and giddily excited Rookie, and Liz Long, the 2 year Rebelle veteran and 2021 wind storm survivor.
Hillary Tate is a new addition to the Honda Rebelle drivers. She worked at HDMA (Honda Development and Manufacturing of America) for 5 years on various major construction projects in Ohio, and now works with American Honda Motor Co. on nationwide construction projects. Hillary exudes confidence, has a glowing smile that spreads joy, and cannot wait to compete this year.
Liz Long is a 2-year Rebelle veteran and is looking forward to the rally this year. She has worked at HDMA for 8 years as a chassis reliability test engineer for Honda and Acura vehicles. Liz is kind at heart and works hard at guiding the Honda of America Racing Team (HART) Rebelle team.
Liz and Hillary have been working together on the HART Rebelle team since 2021. This year, they have grown closer and have been working to become a cohesive team ready to Rebelle.

I know how to swing dance and lindy hop.
The Rebelle is addicting. This is my 3rd year competing and it is always a new and exciting challenge to which you can't say no.

I am a high energy, old soul who has never met a stranger. I love dad jokes, puns, interior design, riding motorcycles, quilting, crafting, jetskiing, and doing anything outside.

As soon as I learned about the Honda Rebelle team, I joined immediately. I spent the first year on the prep team, hoping one day a driver spot would open. It did! I was drawn to the all-female competition, the outdoors, and the all around “Push Yourself!” aspects!
