Ford has enjoyed quite a bit of success at the Rebelle Rally – an all-female off-road race devoid of modern GPS and smartphones to help participants navigate trails – since it first entered three teams driving Ford Bronco Sport crossovers there back in 2020. Since then, that same model has achieved the event’s first three-peat, and has since been joined by the Ford Bronco, with the all-new Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally now set to expand The Blue Oval team for this year’s Rebelle Rally, too. Now, just a couple of weeks after announcing that it will sponsor a total of five teams at the 2023 Rebelle Rally, Ford has also become an official partner for that growing event, too.
Ford is joining a host of other companies as official partners of the Rebelle Rally race – a list that includes fellow automotive brands Jeep and Toyota – on the cusp of its biggest effort in that event to date. This year, that docket consists of the Bronco Sport in the X-Cross class, a pair of Bronco Raptors competing in the 4×4 division, and the Mach-E Rally, which is making its debut in the X-Cross class with the Electrified Designation.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Rebelle for the upcoming Rally,” said Mark Rushbrook, director, Global Ford Performance Motorsports. “What Emily and her team have created is unique and offers us the perfect showcase for our amazing vehicles. We are so excited to be back this year and in particular for the debut of the Mustang Mach-E Rally which we hope will perform like the thoroughbred that it is.”
“The Rebelle Rally welcomes Ford as a partner, celebrating their dedication to not only vehicle excellence but adventure, innovation, and outdoor conservation,” said Rebelle Founder/Director Emily Miller. “We are so excited to welcome Ford as an official partner. Their vehicle lineup shows such a strong commitment to off-road, and their dedication to our trails and land stewardship is completely aligned with the Rebelle ethos.”
