With the Sibiu Rally (Romania) scheduled from July 25th to 27th, the European Rally Championship enters its decisive phase and the United Business crew wants to shine.
Despite the setback in Ypres Rally, where they had to retire while they were fighting for the 2WD standings, Molly Taylor with Seb Marshall await the start in Romania with utmost determination and motivation, knowing that a positive result would be a great support for their championship ambitions.
“I hope that in Sibiu luck will be on my side … it would be high time to reward all the work done in the last months, I hope so both for me and for the team” – said Molly Taylor – “we did not need the off in Ypres Rally, our Citroen DS3 R3 had no problems, the tyres were right, unfortunately we paid dearly a small mistake in difficult road conditions, but this will not be an obstacle to our desire to do a good event in Romania. I do not know Sibiu Rally at all, but I am told that it is a very tough race for both car and crew, obviously knowing nothing of the roads which we will drive on we will certainly be at a disadvantage compared to local drivers or to those who have already tackled this rally. For this race United Business has not scheduled pre-event tests, the race is new to me, I will have to commit myself to the utmost to get straightaway the right confidence with my DS3 R3″.
Sibiu Rally will start with the shakedown and the qualifying stage on Thursday 25th, followed by a presentation in the town centre and the ceremonial start. On Friday and Saturday the crews will face 14 stages for a total of 228 timed kms.
