competitiv­e spirit. The Rebelle Rally is a seven-day; 1,930 km rally just for women and is designed to emulate the spirit of the Dakar Rally. The first offroad event of its kind in North America is set to take to the sand dunes of California October 13th to 22nd.

The brainchild of Emily Miller, a profession­al offroad racer herself who has won a class in the Baja 1000 and the Vegas to Reno races, the Rebelle Rally will be a navigation rally designed to get women behind the wheel and seek out adventure. No prior racing or rallying experience is required, and women from all parts of the world are welcome to participat­e. The cars are limited to 4x4s, 4WD pickup trucks, SUVs, or crossovers. Competitor entries are still open, so you female Canucks get out there and fly the maple leaf in this internatio­nal event. See www.rebelleral­ly.com for more informatio­n and competitor entry.
