As per the “rumours” of the past weeks, Australian driver Molly Taylor along with co-driver, Englishman Seb Marshall, will compete in the European Rally Championship.
Molly will begin her adventure in the European Championship driving the Citroen DS3 R3T in two weeks’ time, in Portugal on the island of São Miguel, taking part in the 48th Sata Rallye Acores on April 25- 27. She will then start in another seven European events and take part in at least one round of the World Rally Championship.
“I am very excited to take part in the European Championship,” said Taylor.
“Competing at the Sata Rallye Acores will be a very good experience for me, as well as having the opportunity to compete in the other European Championship.
“It will be a very interesting challenge, I only know one event, Ypres, having done it last year, but the other races will all be new for me and in places where I have never competed.
“I am raring to go, with United Business and BP Racing our priority is to be consistently fast in every race which we will take part in and to try to win the ‘FIA ERC Ladies’ Trophy”.
The car will be supplied and prepared by BP Racing, the team which provided the car for the 2012 season.
“2013 is another step forward in Molly’s sports career, it will be a very important season for her, despite being young (only 25 years old) she has experience, technique, determination and is very fast, in my opinion she is one of the fastest lady drivers in the world,” said Liberali.
“Competing in the European Championship was a logical choice, although already very popular, by taking part in the 2013 FIA ERC, thanks to Eurosport, she will further increase her international visibility “.
“Molly’s determination was fundamental, and we are proud to have the brands of the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission (WMC) and of the Australian Motor Sport Foundation (AMSF).
Taylor will also drive at the Coates Hire Rally Australia in Coffs Harbour in September in the WRC 3 class aboard a Ford Fiesta from Canberra team Innate Motorsport.
WAMS wishes Molly every success for the upcoming season
