The annual Rebelle Rally is the longest competitive off-road rally raid in the United States, and it also happens to be for women. 

Precision driving and navigation, not speed, are the ultimate goal. The endurance competition is innovative and unique using paper maps, compass, roadbooks, and strategy – known as Rebelle Format. GPS and other electronic devices are strictly prohibited.

Traversing over 2,500 kilometers through Nevada and California’s iconic terrain, the Rebelle Rally is considered a proving ground for people, products, and stock manufacturer vehicles.

“We only stand behind products and companies we truly believe in. From embedded navigation systems in vehicles we drive everyday, to backcountry-friendly apps, Mapbox is our go-to recommendation for a digital mapping and location services partner.”

Emily Miller, Founder of the Rebelle Rally

While the competition itself relies on analog navigation tools, behind-the-scenes Mapbox is the location technology backbone for the Rebelle Rally organizers, from the tools used to design rally roadbooks and plan the course, to the apps that staff and media vehicles use to navigate during the live event, to the base maps for live-tracking of competitors.

Custom Mapbox styles give the Rebelle Rally the creative control to visualize the epic terrain of the course for viewers watching from home.

The Rebelle Rally also builds with Mapbox as the mapping platform for its specialty vehicle testing system that provides manufacturers the ability to monitor internal and external vehicle data from afar. Mapbox maps also help to connect the growing global network of Rebelle competitors via interactive maps with competitor profiles and shared memories.
