Kelly Racing is pleased to confirm that Molly Taylor will drive one of the team’s Subaru WRX STI’s in the 2019 TCR Australia Series.

The 30 year old, who currently competes for the factory-backed Subaru do Motorsport team in the Australian Rally Championship, is the first of four drivers confirmed for Kelly Racing’s TCR efforts, which includes two Subarus and two Opel Astras.

Taylor’s drive in the TCR Series will mark her first full attack on a circuit racing championship having carved her career in the Australian and international rally scene.

She will enter TCR Australia with a slight advantage, though, having tested one of the Subaru WRX STI TCR cars late last year at the Cremona Circuit, near Milan.

The daughter of four time Australian Rally Champion co-driver Coral Taylor, Molly found her skills were suited to the driver’s seat, competing overseas for five years before returning to Australian shores, winning the 2016 CAMS Australian Rally Championship. Not only was Molly the first female to achieve this feat, she was also the youngest to ever win the prestigious title.

Off the track, Taylor is the CAMS delegate to the FIA Rally Commission and an ambassador for the female motorsport initiative Dare to be Different, among other community and charity organisations.

Due to Molly’s existing commitments with Subaru in the ARC, she will be unavailable for the final two TCR Australia Series rounds at Sandown and The Bend due to date clashes. A replacement driver for those events will be confirmed in due course.

The Kelly Racing Subaru WRX STIs have arrived in Australia, and the team will test at Winton on Monday, May 6 ahead of the opening round of the TCR Australia Series at Sydney Motorsport Park on May 17-19.

Every TCR Australia race across the seven rounds will be broadcast live, free and in HD on SBS. The rounds will also be live streamed, available on the TCR Australia website.

Tickets for the opening event at Sydney Motorsport Park are now on sale via the Shannons Nationals website. CLICK HERE to secure your tickets and see Australian touring car history being made …

QUOTES
Molly Taylor
Driver, Kelly Racing Subaru WRX STI TCR

“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 Molly 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.”

VERY excited to take on this new challenge and grateful to Kelly Racing for the amazing opportunity! I’ll be competing in the first five rounds of the TCR Australia series (as the last two clash with the Australian Rally Championship calendar). It’s going to be a busy year and a huge learning curve 💪 #kellyracing #tcr #tcraustralia

 

Todd Kelly
Owner, Kelly Racing

“Kelly Racing is very excited to confirm that Molly will drive one of our Subarus in the TCR Australia Series,” said Todd Kelly.

“You don’t win the Australian Rally Championship by accident. Molly is a serious motorsport talent and we are looking forward to transferring her rally speed into circuit racing speed.

“She has already tested one of the cars, so that is a huge bonus for us. It will give all of us a slight advantage as we head into our first test and the opening round in Sydney.”

PETTER SOLBERG 🇳🇴 LANDS THE HIGH FIVE WITH ANOTHER WALES RALLY GB WIN 🇬🇧🌍

PETTER SOLBERG 🇳🇴 LANDS THE HIGH FIVE WITH ANOTHER WALES RALLY GB WIN 🇬🇧🌍

The stars aligned for Petter in Wales last week,as former team-members joined him at Wales Rally GB.

Petter lands the high five with another Wales Rally GB win

 

 

The Solberg story headlines at Wales Rally GB (again)
Emotional farewell as Petter signs off with a WRC 2 victory
Petter: “That’s a proper way to say goodbye.”
Oliver fastest on his first ever WRC outing
Stunning Saturday morning speed, Oliver beats everybody on just his third WRC stage
Mixed emotions doesn’t come close for the Solberg family following another thrilling week in Wales.

Petter and Oliver drove their Volkswagen Polo GTI R5s on one of the season’s most complicated and competitive rallies. Both have a story to tell…

For Petter, a four-time Wales Rally GB winner, the last week has been an astonishingly rapid run down memory lane. It’s seven years since the triple world champion competed in Britain, but it felt like yesterday when he delivered the dream: a fifth Wales Rally GB win – admittedly, this one was in the WRC 2 category.

This time, even Hollywood was almost lost for words.

“Incredible,” he said. “Unbelievable. Since we planned the Farewell Tour at the start of the year, I wanted to come here and wanted to do GB. It was different this time with Oliver driving as well. The emotions were a little bit more complicated, but this result… what can I say?

“The comeback starts now!”

Petter admitted returning to one of the season’s most complicated rallies was not straightforward.

“I didn’t underestimate how tough this would be? But maybe I forgot a little bit about how tough it was! This rally is one of the hardest in the championship and it always was – that’s one of the things that make it so special when you are having the success here.

“The days are long and the roads are so, so difficult to read and take confidence from, but when you get it right, it’s the best feeling in the world.”

More on that comeback?

“Do you think I should? Maybe? No, we’re working on Oliver’s plan now. Oliver is the future for the Solberg story, mine is a little bit in the history now. Honestly, it’s been really nice, fun and a lot of emotions coming to this rally. I love this place and these people, so to share my last proper WRC round with Wales was so special for me and Phil.

“That was the proper way to say goodbye.”

Back to the future…

In the last week, Oliver’s World Rally Championship dream got real.

After an already insanely successful rookie season of four-wheel drive rallying, where Oliver has become the youngest ever European Rally Championship event winner and taken America by storm with Subaru Motorsports USA, Wales Rally GB was the next mountain to climb.

Predictably, Oliver made short work of his big moment. He was fastest of all the R5 cars (including WRC 2 Pro and WRC 2) on just his third stage in the World Rally Championship.

Unfortunately, a misted-up windscreen spoiled SS1, while a smashed wheel rim on the second test ruled him out Friday. After a day by the north Wales seaside, Oliver was very much back in business on Saturday morning.

That’s when the fastest times started. Nobody drove an R5 car faster than Oliver through Dyfi and Myherin. Nobody.

Unfortunately, just as the weekend was starting to fly, Sweet Lamb turned sour and Saturday was done.

“The car stopped,” said Oliver. “We don’t know why. We checked everything, but it wasn’t possible to continue. We came to service and the team made lots of investigations, worked on the car and then I could come back again on Sunday.

“Of course, it was disappointing that we couldn’t take the experience we wanted from all of the stages, but the thing I wanted to have a look at for myself was the speed.

“I have been asking myself for the whole time: “Where am I for the speed? How will I compare with the other guys?

“When I came to the first stage on Saturday morning, it was really difficult. I had nothing to win and a lot to lose if I crashed. Honestly, we drove at around 95 per cent and the times were good.”

Good? Try sensational.

Through the 26-kilometre Dyfi test, Oliver was 9.1 seconds faster than any other R5 cars. And 24.7s up on Papa.

“That was good,” he said. “I enjoyed that one – the grip was really good in places and this took me by surprise. I was braking early many times.”

In Myherin, Oliver could only manage fastest by 3.1s and this time Petter was just eight down.

After that, Saturday went south, but Sunday demonstrated more speed and more potential before he rolled in the penultimate test.

Oliver said: “The end of the event wasn’t like we wanted, but the dream really has come true for me to be here. Wales and the World Rally Championship wasn’t like my Papa told me it would be. It was evenbetter.”

AND NOW FOR MORE… AL-ATTIYAH CONSIDERING FULL ERC CAMPAIGN

 

 

Nasser Al-Attiyah celebrated his sixth Cyprus Rally victory on Sunday evening by revealing that he’s considering a full FIA European Rally Championship campaign in 2020.

Al-Attiyah, from Qatar, has enjoyed a long run of success in stage and cross-country rallying at both regional and international level.

He’s yet to tackle more than a handful of ERC events in any one season but that could change next year.

“We are thinking to the European [championship] next year, we will sit with the team and we will see,” said Al-Attiyah, who drove an Autotek Motorsport-run Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 to victory in Cyprus.

“To compete in different race [is the reason], we know everybody, the atmosphere in this European championship is really great, a family, and a lot of media. And when you win you win the race.”

In addition to a possible ERC bid, Al-Attiyah also confirmed he hopes to represent Qatar in skeet shooting at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
