One of Australia’s most successful women in motorsport, Molly Taylor, will make her grand return to the Bosch Motorsport Australia Rally Championship (ARC) for the final two rounds of the 2023 season.
The 2016 ARC champion will join a star-studded field at the PowerPlay Adelaide Hills Rally in October for her first championship appearance since the 2021 Accent Benchtops Rally Queensland, before rounding out the year at the National Capital Rally in November.
Taylor will be ‘bringing the band back together’ with Andy Sarandis as her co-driver, and the duo will pilot the same Subaru WRX STI they won the state-level Rally Tasmania back in 2020.
Despite only one championship appearance since 2020, the Victorian will return with plenty of additional experience under her belt, having featured in a variety of international championships including Extreme E, the FIA World Rally Championship, W2RC, R2Xe and the famous Dakar Rally.
“I’m incredibly excited to be rallying back on home soil,” Taylor said.
“The ARC holds wonderful memories for me and I’m excited and proud to be competing again in the Subaru WRX.”
The return will also see Molly go up against her mum Coral, who is highly regarded as one of Australia’s most celebrated motorsport champions and is currently competing as a co-driver alongside championship contender, Harry Bates.
“Going up against Mum and Harry just puts even more of a fire in my belly. This is family feud (the friendly competitive kind) at its best,” Taylor added.
Molly Taylor will make her return to the Bosch Motorsport Australia Rally Championship at the PowerPlay Adelaide Hills Rally on 13-15 October, before appearing at the National Capital Rally in Canberra on 18-19 November.
