Well, they were in the lead for a while on todays stage, will have to see how it shakes out today. They are being followed around by a team from Rivian, I am interested in seeing what they publish out of the event as well.

The Rebelle Coverage team has talked to them a few times, seems like they are doing well. So far no issues have been mentioned about the vehicle. They have been taking the charging window they have been given every day and have not yet run out of juice. They have a charging dispensation where they get one chance to stop at a specified location for up to 1.5 hours to charge. They have to separate so they can't take additional time to strategize as a team. From watching the tracker online, I haven't seen them take the full 1.5 hours yet. I also have not seen them struggling to keep up, so it looks like it is working fine.

One additional benefit that has come out of the EVs being there is that the Truck they are using for charging is being used for ALL power at the base camp. So, no generators running all night, so the crews and other competitors have been liking having it around. On board that rig is a bunch of batteries, solar panels and a hydrogen fuel cell generator. :) For the Rivian it is putting out up to 175 KW for charging, plus enough power for the entire camp.

I’ve tuned in for a few of the YouTube live broadcasts; I’m guessing there is an agreement with Rivian to limit the exposure of the vehicle being that Rivian is following the team with their own production crew. Can’t wait to see some of the footage and hear from Emme on the performance of the R1T!

It has been awesome watching these women crushing it throughout this gruelling event. They’re the real deal. And tackling it all in the R1T definitely boosts their Rebelle Rally cred 🙌🏼

Last night there was a short video on the Rebelle Rally instagram that showed Emma talking about a bit of damage on the truck. Apparently, she was pushing in too hard to make a checkpoint and tore off the rear inner fender liners. Oops.. :) If this ends up being the only problems they have with the actual truck, I would be more than OK with that :)

Yea, I saw that video and I agree with you. They’ve been pushing it hard all week, so to walk away with that really being the only damage I’m pumped.

And I really want to see what Rivian puts out, and what Emma has to say after the race is over too. Her video on their run last year was fun to watch too.

Yeah, I’m anticipating a promo/review video with team 140 produced by Rivian
No doubt, there is def going to be a video from Rivian about the rally since they are following them with a crew. I imagine that Emme and Rebecca are a bit annoyed of getting followed too lol. I'm also hoping for a full review from Emme [ without Rivian on her back] since she is known for putting up good reviews and she's been embargoed to talk about the driving experience until the end of the rally.

And Emma's as well, since she works for Roadshow on youtube. She did a video on their run last year in the Rolls so I am hoping she does another on the Rivian.
