Molly’s Blog – February 2007

As I write this I’m preparing for my trip to Norway with Dad to go the John Haugland snow and ice rally school. I’m trying to prepare myself for what it will be like to be in a country at minus 25 degrees and can’t even imagine it. It’s hard to describe how excited I am, however I must admit that I am also very nervous. This trip is such a huge opportunity for me to really improve my driving as well as experience rallying in Scandinavia where the sport is so huge.
An opportunity like this doesn’t come along very often so I am preparing to make the most of everything. We will arrive in Norway in time to specatate at the WRC round before the rally school starts. It seems unreal to me that we will travel to the other side of the world. I’ve been overseas before to New Zealand, but that seemed more like going to Tasmania. This will be the longest distance I have ever traveled.
For me, January has been a real showcase of all the challenges associated with rallying. There is so much to learn and so much to do, but I think the challenge only makes it more rewarding. (Joining the netball team would be a much easier sport to choose.) I had hoped to run the ‘MiniDulla’ rally as a shakedown for the car, myself and the team, however we made the decision not to run as we felt that it was more important to get the car right before we gave it a run, so it’s been full steam ahead on car preparation instead. I think driving at 160km plus on a frozen Norway lake will be a better shakedown.!
