Bulldog Rally bites Molly Taylor
Australia’s Molly Taylor has been forced out of the second round of the British Rally Championship, the Bulldog Rally in Wales.
On a frustrating day, Taylor and fellow Aussie co-driver Rebecca Smart, lost a wheel on their Ford Fiesta R2 on just the third stage of the day, as a result of a mechanical failure.
Taylor had hoped for a strong result on the event after last week’s eighth place finish in the WRC Academy round at the Ralle de Portugal. She planned to put into practice the experience gained from the WRC outing.
The young rally star is now looking at options to get further miles under her belt ahead of the next WRC Academy event in Sardinia in early May.
The Fiesta SportTrophy / Rally 2 segment of the Bulldog Rally was won by fellow WRC Academy competitor Craig Breen of Ireland. The outright victory on the event went to Welshman Elfyn Evans who finished eighteen seconds clear of championship leader David Bogie.
