October 2, 2019 (Reno, NV) – As the Rebelle Rally quickly approaches, Jeep® returns to support the women’s off-road navigation endurance competition. The iconic four-wheel drive brand is the 2019 media and awards partner for the 10-day event that is scheduled October 10-19, 2019.
Jeep, synonymous with adventure and capability, is a favorite vehicle among Rebelles and successful as well. Two Jeep Wrangler Rubicons were co-champions in the 4×4 Class in the 2018 rally, and Jeep has held the top of the podium since the rally began in 2016. 12 Jeep vehicles are registered in this year’s edition in the sold out field of 40 teams.
“Jeep is such an iconic brand, and an excellent vehicle choice for the Rebelle Rally. We have been impressed with how many women have bought Jeep vehicles specifically with the intention of competing in the Rebelle,” noted rally founder Emily Miller. “We appreciate Jeep recognizing our committed community and efforts to build a true proving ground for stock OEM vehicles.”
The rally starts next week, on Thursday, October 10th with Tech Inspection at Olympic Valley, California, adjacent to Lake Tahoe. The event will cover 8 days of competition that traverses the western portion of Nevada and crosses into southern California to finish in the Imperial Sand Dunes. Ceremonial finish events take place at the water’s edge in San Diego on Saturday, October 19th. Jeep will host the open to the public podium awards ceremony at Broadway Pier from 12 pm – 2 pm.
