The Rebelle Rally 2023, the longest off-road rally competition held in the United States. The six-stage rally takes participants through the south-west of the country, from the Mammoth Mountain Resort in Mammoth Lakes in California to the Imperial Dunes near the Mexican border. But not on well-maintained highways: the 2,896 kilometres lead through the harsh and unforgiving deserts of California and Nevada. In mid-October 2023, shortly after its world premiere, a BMW M automobile was also on the starting line. The BMW X2 M35i was a first-time competitor in the rally, faced a tough challenge that put the vehicle’s endurance and reliability to the test. Driven and navigated by veteran Rebelle Rally competitors Rebecca Donaghe and Sedona Blinson, the SAV immediately impressed on its debut in the X-CROSS™ class and achieved a fantastic second place.
