Despite damage in the first special stage at Geko Ypres Rally, Molly Taylor and co-driver Seb Marshall have fought back well to reach the finish. The event is a dual event in both the European Rally Championship and the Intercontinental Rally Challenge and takes place in the picturesque town of Ypres in Belgium.
During the first day of competition, the United Business crew experienced a slight off in the first special stage, but despite the damages they were able to complete the first three special stages and to return to service where the team promptly repaired the Citroen DS3 R3 allowing them to continue and to complete the first leg. During the second and final day Molly and Seb, progressively improved their results also thanks to the increasingly greater feeling reached with the car from BP Racing.
"After the time lost in the first stage we stuck to bringing the car back to service, where the Team did a fantastic job to put it back on track" Molly commented after the event
"Then in the second loop on Friday and on Saturday we chose only to gain experience rather than overdoing it, there is so much to learn!
"On the special stages on Saturday we went always better even though not as fast we wanted, but we focused on reaching the finish.
"This is the first race, a very difficult one which I did not know, as it was the first time I drove the Citroen DS3 R3 at the event.
"To take it to the finish was the goal that Pier Liberali of United Business had given us, we reached it."
"For the next races in our programme I know that we will always do better, because of what I have available, Pirelli tyres, car and team are a great sporting and technical package. Race after race, we will have plenty of satisfaction".
The next event for the United Business crew will be in Italy at the Rally Coppa Città di Lucca followed by Neste Rally Finland and lastly the ADAC Rally Deutschland.
