Molly Taylor will contest rounds of the American Rally Association (ARA) behind the wheel of a four wheel-drive Limited Subaru WRX STI this season.
In a deal just announced, Taylor had planned to head over to the USA for the first time in her career and drive the official DirtFish Subaru on the Olympus and Oregon Trail rallies.
Both events have been postponed due to the global coronavirus pandemic, but Taylor is hopeful she can continue this opportunity as soon as the national lockdowns begin to ease.
“Like Australia, America is where there’s regulations that provide a top level category for the WRX STI, so competing with the Subaru internationally is one of the big draws,” Taylor said.

“Rally is also growing a lot over there and there’s a lot of buzz around it [the ARA]. It would be a completely new opportunity and you never know where those things might lead, so I think the appeal of trying something new, throwing in another challenge and being able to do that at a high level in a Subaru kind of ticked all the boxes for me.
“I’m still aiming to compete in Australia, and there are some opportunities in the Asia Pacific Championship that I’d like to tackle and add to an international program. Obviously everything is up in the air given the current situation, but hopefully we will still be able to put something together later in the year.”
