Rally Blog – Molly Taylor in the UK
- 25th September 2008, 1:33pm
Australia's hottest female rally talent, Molly Taylor, will compete in the Trackrod Rally in Yorkshire this weekend, a round of the British Rally Championship.
Molly will drive a leased Suzuki Swift in the event, and tested the car for the first time yesterday. Here's her latest blog ......
Just got back from testing which went well. It was great to hop in the car and get a feel for it. It took a while to get used to left hand drive and I still need to feel more familiar with it, but the car feels good and it will be a lot of fun to drive.
The test track was set on an old airfield. It was a concrete road with gravel on top and the course was defined by tyres (they use it for a rally school here). It was fairly tight which was ideal to get a feel for car placement when you are sitting on the wrong side of the car!
On Thursday we will have another test in the Yorkshire forests, near the location of the rally. I'm looking forward to getting a feel for the car at higher speeds and finding a set up for the event.
I'm feeling a bit nervous but very excited also to see what it's like through the forest. It's very beautiful over here and there hasn't been too much rain, so hopefully it will stay that way!
