The Rebelle Rally is an exceptionally unique and challenging competition with many layers and elements. But often, people don’t understand the scope and try to put it into a box of “motorsports.” While it is a competition in vehicles, it is much more – a motorsport event, a navigation event, a women’s empowerment and community event with a dose of overlanding. But at its core, it’s an extreme outdoor endurance event.
It’s an exciting time for the Rebelle Rally! As February rolls in, we’re focusing on the momentum and energy that’s building up as we prepare for a packed schedule of Rebelle U training, course running, and setting the stage for the 9th rally this October. In this edition of our newsletter, we’re bringing you a collection of stories that showcase the strength and innovation within our community.
We couldn’t wait to catch up with Nicole Pitell-Vaughan, co-owner of longtime Rebelle partner TOTAL CHAOS Fabrication, for our latest partner Q&A. A leader in the realm of off-road suspension, Nicole steers a business that has been at the forefront of innovation and quality in the industry for over two decades.
It’s music to our ears to hear that the international team of Liza and Sue loves coming back to the Rebelle year after year. Team #144 CanToy Divas is a Canadian duo who has competed in the Rebelle Rally three times together since 2020 – and won the coveted International Cup every single time, with $10,000 donated to the non-profits of their choosing.
As the year comes to a close, it’s with gratitude that we look back on 2023 milestones. From an expanded Rebelle U training program to the exciting debut of Rebelle Trials, the inaugural Art of Rebelle Presented by Pirelli held in Los Angeles, and record-breaking 8th edition with most teams ever, this year has been defined by monumental moments. And it wouldn’t all be possible without the unwavering support from our incredible competitors, partners, audience, and dedicated staff.
The Rebelle Rally has long been associated with sustainability, stewardship, and environmental responsibility through conservation, education, and boots-on-the-ground projects. As one of the pillars of Rebelle Impact, the principle of “what happens beyond the competition and score matters most” was introduced. To further this idea in 2023, Rally founder Emily Miller introduced Rebelle Forward, a new addition to the Rebelle family.
The 2023 Rebelle Rally was an unforgettable experience for so many teams. Still, for one international team, it was an adventure from start to finish, including their journey to the start line. Meet Team #177 Brouck Sisters, who learned about the Rebelle Rally five years ago. Their passion for off-roading came from their father, and the sisters were determined to make their first visit to America a memorable one.
Last month, four Iridium® team members tested their limits against 62 other teams in the Rebelle Rally. Spanning more than 2,000 kilometers across the Nevada and California desert, it’s the first women’s off-road navigation rally in the United States.
At the globally renowned SEMA Show (Speciality Equipment Market Association) in Las Vegas this year, Rebelle Founder Emily Miler received two prestigious awards in recognition of her significant contributions to the automotive sector. These awards acknowledge Emily’s dedication to its advancement and development.
As we enter the final month of the year, it’s time for both celebration and reflection. Join us as we look back at our 2023 Awards Presented by Jeep, enjoy the latest episode of our docuseries, relive the 8th edition highlight’s, and secure your sport for 2024 before they’re gone!
The end of the year is rapidly approaching, and to celebrate, we’re looking back at the award winners from the 2023 Rebelle Rally Rebellation Awards Ceremony Presented by Jeep – longtime partner of the rally.
Take a deep dive into the competition format. The Rebelle Rally is not a race for speed, but a competition of precise navigation and driving.
Sustainably charging electric vehicles and providing power to over 250 people for eight days in the middle of the desert is no easy task. Renewable Innovations has the answer.
