Molly’s Blog – Snow, Snow, Snow!
- 26th February 2010, 12:38pm
Australian rally driver, Molly Taylor, was in Sweden recently for both Rally Sweden, where she worked for the M-Sport and Ford hospitality teams, and to take part in an ice driving school.
Following is an extract from Molly's latest Blog which appears on her website:
"I’ve just had a pretty amazing couple of weeks. Unexpectedly, I was given the opportunity to work at Rally Sweden with M-Sport and the Ford Hospitality team. So, suddenly I ended up in Sweden, deep in snow and in temperatures that ranged from minus 14 to minus 20 during the week. It was so cold that the hydraulic fluid in the car jacks froze in the service park.
My first few days were spent doing a recce of the spectating route planned for the Team Guests over the weekend. It was so beautiful driving through completely white forests, and the snow was so soft, that when you walked through the snow banks you quickly ended up waist deep in snow!
It was such a privilege to be part of the M-Sport team at a WRC event. The guests that I helped look after were mainly from Estonia and consequently they were much more used to standing out in the snowy forests in freezing temperatures than I was. They were really enthusiastic and fun to be with, which made the weekend a lot of fun for me too. Mind you – there were some really early mornings and late nights."
