The North West Car Club has scored a major coup for its final event of the season, the Rexel Electrical Supplies Isandula Rallysprint on Saturday.

A capacity field of 32 cars will include 2016 Australian rally champion driver Molly Taylor, who has just returned from Chile, where she was competing in the final round of the Extreme E World Rally Championship.

Taylor and Swedish navigator Kevin Hansen, finished third in the championship.

On Saturday she will drive the same Subaru WRX in which she contested the 2019 and 2020 Australian Rally Championships.

Taylor says she’s looking forward to reuniting with car owner Craig Brooks, of Burnie, promoting her passion for women in motorsport, and supporting grass roots rallying and the North West Car Club.

Saturday’s rally sprint will be held in the Isandula forest South of Ulverstone, with spectator guides available on the North West Car Club website and Facebook page.
