DRIVERS around the world are revving their engines in anticipation of the FIA World Rally Championship in Coffs Harbour this September.

The only female driver who will be tackling the course is Australian Molly Taylor, who is continuing to wow competitors and spectators during races all over Europe.

During a particular race in Estonia, bad luck seemed to follow the young driver, causing her Ford Fiesta R2 to cut out on several occasions.

Never letting a little bit of trouble get in her way, Molly still managed to post some impressive times.

“Obviously having the car cut out when you least expect it is not the ideal way to compete in a rally.

"We lost a lot of time, but when we were going, we were doing really well,” Molly laughs.

“My aim with this event was to narrow the gap to some of my fastest WRC Academy rivals in terms of seconds per kilometre and we achieved that.

"We were about half a second per kilometre away from Craig Breen (champion Irish driver) and because we were able to do that consistently, we’re now at a level where we know how to close the gap.”

Tickets for the ‘Ultimate Dust Up’ on the Coffs Coast, are on-sale via Ticketek.

Tickets are priced from as little as $15 for an adult.
