Molly Taylor’s assault on the Swift Sport Cup title in Britain has come to a bitter end at the International Rally of Yorkshire, despite Taylor proving she was the one to beat.

Starting the event as one of three drivers in with a chance to take out the coveted title, Taylor blasted out of the blocks and took the first stage victory.  She was a massive 30 seconds faster than fellow championship contender, Luke Pinder, whilst the other driver in with a chance of the title, Gordon Nichol, rolled on the opening stage.

The battle then came down to a duel between Taylor and Pinder, and by the end of the fifth stage, the young Aussie had increased her lead to 35 seconds after a controlled drive.

With just three stages to go, tragedy struck when a fuel pump problem halted Taylor’s Swift, and despite her best efforts to fix the problem, she was forced to retire from the rally.

A devastated Taylor said, “It’s a tough end to a fantastic year - this sport sure is character building!”
