The 1200 mile-long Rebelle Rally is the first women’s off-road navigation rally in the United States. Blending the love of driving with the ultimate challenge of precise navigation, the Rebelle tests your skills over 8 days of competition. It is not a race for speed, but a unique and demanding event based on the elements of headings, hidden check points, time and distance using maps, compass, and roadbook.
Two members of the famous Locos Mocos Off-Road Team, Laura “Farmella” Hardesty Butcher and “Princess” Caroline Seal Cole, will be participating in this year’s Rebelle Rally. This highly accomplished and competent off-road duo are prepped and up for the challenge. Starting in Squaw Valley, NV and finishing in San Diego, CA, Laura and Caroline will spend 8 adventure filled and challenging days, October 11-20, navigating, picking lines and applying their mad left foot braking skills!
