Like Mother, like daughter
‘Whether your male or female, your gender is irrelevant in rally driving. There is defiantly no reason as to why a women can’t be as good as a man in the car. You only know your limit until you go over it’
Molly grew up around motor as both parents are rally drivers. Her father stopped competing once Molly was born and her mum still continues to compete. Her mother was a co-driver with Toyota rally team for 15 years. She never had any pressure to become involved, and it was never a planned career path, it just naturally happened. In 2007, Molly made her debut in the Australian Rally Championship and won the F16 class. In 2009 Molly moved to the UK to compete in the Suzuki Swift Sport Cup, a one-make sub-series of the British Rally Championship. Molly competed across Europe in six WRC rounds in 2011, taking two top 5 results and finished 2011 on a career high, with a stage win for the final round in the championship at Wales Rally GB. In 2013 Molly competed in a 7 round European Rally Championship in the Citroen DS3 R3T, winning the inaugural FIA European Ladies Rally Championship. Her results also elevated her to World Rally Rankings Number 1 International Female Rally Driver.
