Ram Is In For The 2020 Rebelle Rally
Team 4 Corners will be shooting for the podium with a tried and true squad.
An international team composed of Nena Barlow (USA) and veteran navigator Chris Mayne (France) will try to duplicate the successes they had on the 2017 and 2018 rallies as "Team 4 Corners." Although the team did not complete in the 2019 rally, Barlow did make an appearance on the rally's media team on the final day, co-driving with skiing legend Wendy Fisher.
The Rebelle Rally is an off-road navigation-based competition, travelling 1,200-1,400 miles in seven days across the deserts of the western United States, using only a map and compass. No GPS or outside help is allowed, and the course is a closely guarded secret. More than 40 teams of women drive production vehicles in either 4x4 or Crossover class, seeking checkpoints with varying degrees of navigation and driving challenge.
Ram Truck has yet to announce details about the vehicle that Team 4 Corners will be running for this year's rally, but one of the premises of the Rebelle Rally is limited vehicle modifications, including stipulations such as a maximum allowed tire height of 35-inches. A special award, the Bone Stock Award, goes to the highest scoring team driving a vehicle in completely stock condition, just as it came from the factory. In previous years of the rally, Barlow drove a 2016 Ram Rebel, 2017 Ram Power Wagon, and 2019 Ram Rebel, all just as they came from the factory.
This year, the Rebelle Rally takes place October 8-17, 2020, from Lake Tahoe, in Northern California, across the Nevada desert, ending in the famous Imperial Sand Dunes, better known as Glamis, in Southern California.
