On a wing and a prayer two kiwi’s have thrown themselves headfirst out of their comfort zone and entered the Rebelle Rally, an all-female, all-navigation road rally. Armed with kiwi ingenuity and skills developed tearing around the farm on quads, Katy Kunkel and her friend Frank are preparing to compete against an international field this October.

All navigational means no Siri – all devices are prohibited bar a compass and a topographical map.  The ladies trained for sand at Muriwai and more recently learned technical 4×4 skills in North Carolina.  Their goal is to survive the snakes and scorpions over the 7 days and to finish.  Jucy RV Rentals have stepped up and backed their campaign, as they have been operating on the West Coast since 2013. Jucy’s ‘embrace the wrong turn and take the scenic route’ philosophy is the perfect match for Katy and Frank who are thrilled to have the support of a kiwi brand.   Follow them on FB here.
