Longtime friends Carole Lalay and Céline Kissel decided to pursue one of their dreams together: to compete in the legendary Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles. Their enthusiasm and determination won over Subaru France, which decided to support the project by supplying a Subaru XV. The two young women will be competing in Crossover Class in this adventure that combines competition with personal challenge, shared experiences and a good dose of solidarity between teams.
Motivated by a desire to learn and build on their experience, to enjoy every moment of the event and to do everything possible to keep going right to the end, the Gazelles of Team 331 will take the start of their first Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles in a Subaru XV 2.0i.
This crossover benefits from Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive and a 2-litre, 4 cylinder, 150 horsepower SUBARU BOXER engine.
The "competition" Subaru XV has kept all of its original features, in addition to a protective plate under the body, all-terrain tires and a decorative wrap.
As the Gazelles have to carry all of their equipment on board, the interior was prepped by manufacturer-body specialist Jocquin, the company responsible for prepping the utility versions of the XV, Outback and Forester for Subaru France.
Carole Lalay and Céline Kissel had a chance to discover their car’s behaviour in the sand during the driving training course offered by the Rallye’s organizer. "Lost among a herd of big 4x4s, our Subaru XV didn’t go unnoticed", remarked Céline. "At first, our instructor looked doubtful. He didn’t see how our pretty Crossover was going to get out of the ruts of soft sand with such low ground clearance. After trying it himself, he changed his mind and admitted to being very impressed. That reassured us and gave us confidence for the challenge to come. The Subaru XV has great traction."
