Subaru do Motorsport driver, Molly Taylor, is excited about her first foray into the world of circuit racing after announcing a deal to compete in the TCR Australia series in a Subaru WRX. The 2016 Australian Rally Champion will compete in the first five rounds of the series. “This is an exciting opportunity for me and I’m extremely grateful to Kelly Racing for giving me the chance to make my circuit racing debut this year,” said Taylor “Rallying has always been my passion. I grew up around it and it continues to consume me everyday, but I’m always up for a new challenge.“TCR is something that I have been interested in, particularly when the Subaru WRX STI was introduced to the series.
“While I was in Europe late last year, I had the opportunity to drive one of the Subaru TCR cars and it was an awesome experience. I know I’ll have a lot to learn, switching my rally style to circuit racing, but having the support of the Kelly Racing team is going to be a huge advantage.  “The team is very experienced in touring car racing and I know they are going to get the best out of me.

“I really can’t wait to get into the WRX again for the test and to be as prepared as I can for the first round at Sydney Motorsport Park.” Taylor will miss the final two rounds of the TCR series as it clashes with her commitments in the Australian Rally Championship, but will have plenty of time behind the wheel of the race car. She plans to have her first test of the car in Australia at Winton Motor Raceway on Monday.
