Molly-Taylor-in-actionMolly Taylor codriven by Seb Marshall, on their Citroen DS3 R3T in the unmistakable United Business livery, will be at the start of the Barum Rally, eighth round of the European Rally Championship.

The town of Zlin, in the Czech Republic, will be the new scene where the strong Australian lady driver will compete, from August 31st to September 1st, will compete against some of the best drivers taking part in the European Championship.

“After the positive result obtained in the Sibiu Rally in Romania, especially with a view to the ERC Ladies’ Trophy, I face Barum Rally as calmer  but with the utmost determination – says Molly Taylor – I am really happy to be at the start of this race, rich in tradition and that everybody describes as being wonderful for the public, but extremely challenging from a technical standpoint due to the particular roads. Once again it will all be new for me, but I am used to it, it is clear that having never done this event I will have to drive with great  care, in this case too the goal is to finish the race. Unfortunately, my situation in the championship had become complicated after the retirements in the Azores and in Ypres, now after the good result in Sibiu the standings have improved. Pier Liberali, my manager, always tells me that to win you first need to get to the end of each rally, often without taking risks. For a driver, not being able to push a maximum is sometimes frustrating, but I share the concept and understand the commitment and efforts of United Business to help me achieve the best possible result, they allow me to compete which is something great and I am happy and proud to be managed by this company. At the Barum Rally Seb and I will be present with great satisfaction and will give it all we’ve got in every metre of special stage. I owe it to the team, to United Business and to all those who this year are allowing me to take part in the European Championship”.

The European Rally Championship is always more lively. The Barum Rally will open the “warm” and final part of the season and this young Australian girl wants to be the star!
