The Rebelle Rally, an all-women’s rally that kicked off in 2016 with a course going from Northern Nevada to Southern California, aimed to bring stateside the concept that gained recognition from the Aicha des Gazelles Rally in Morocco that dates back more than 20 years. Building on the success of the inaugural event in 2016, the Rebelle Rally is announcing a new classification to recognize international participants, the International Cup Class. Rebelle Rally founder Emily Miller said the special designation was meant to recognize the exceptional effort involved in participating in an international event.
An “International Team” is defined as two teammates that are not U.S. citizens or hold dual citizenship and a valid non-U.S. passport. At least one of the teammates must live outside of the U.S. full-time. International Cup teams will be recognized with a special designation on their vests. The highest-scoring international team will receive $2,500 toward the nonprofit organization of their choice, have their name inscribed on the “Prize Cup,” and be given a commemorative International Cup plaque.
To help facilitate participation, the Rally is working with companies to provide event-ready vehicles to rent for the competition, reducing the cost and complexity of shipping and importing vehicles. The Rebelle Rally will hold a conference call on May 2, 2017 starting at 9 a.m. Pacific Standard Time/5 p.m. GMT for interested international participants.
