Molly Taylor recently had the chance to test her skills as a circuit racer at Sydney’s Eastern Creek Raceway. 

After being approached by Jim Hunter, (from ‘Jim Hunter Suspension’), she was invited to attend a test day in one of the team’s Subarus.  Hunter is running a three car team in the Bathurst 12 Hour race in February.

Having not had a lot of tarmac experience, Taylor said, “I didn’t really know what to expect, but I actually had a really great time. After a few sessions I was very comfortable in the car and my times were showing that. I think it all went well, because I got asked back!!”

Taylor now needs to get the appropriate circuit racing licences in time in order to participate in the race.

“I am really pushing to do it as I think it would be a fantastic opportunity and a great experience for me,” she added.

Jim Hunter was extremely pleased with Taylor’s performance on the test day.  In a post-test report he told her, “Your driving skill and car speed is undoubted, however your main attribute as a race driver is your willingness to listen and learn. Your steady improvement was excellent and your sympathy for the car was great. I have no hesitation in you driving for my team.”
