From military parlance or slang recce is short hand for reconnaissance.

Therefore in the way it was meant by the Hoonigan Racing team is as a pre runner to drive though the rally stages at less than full chat to learn the course.

RALLY 101 What is Recce? For those unfamiliar with the recce process in rally, here’s a quick primer. As we hope you already know, a rally car team consists of two drivers, the one who is actually driving and the one who is calling out the notes. And while in some places, like certain events in the US, a computer generated note system is used—called Jemba—most of the rallying world relies on the two-pass recce. Basically, the teams pre-run the stages and the driver calls the turns as he sees them to the co-driver, then on the second pass the co-driver reads them back and any corrections are made to insure they have the best possible notes for the actual stage. Oh and for those still wondering, recce is military slang for reconnaissance.
Just for confirmation, and reference to their old Volvo reconnaissance cars used over in Europe.
