Aussie Molly Taylor is the British Ladies Rally Champion

We may have lost the Ashes, but it's not all bad for Aussies in Britain ...

Competing in her first full season in the United Kingdom, Sydney's Molly Taylor has become the MSA British Ladies Rally Champion.

The 21-year old – tipped as a driver to watch in the 2008 Wheels Yearbook wrapped up the title with a solid result on last weekend's Ulster Rally, round five of the six round British Rally Championship.

Taylor, daughter of champion co-driver Coral and flamboyant rear-drive rally specialist Mark, is also a big chance to take out the Swift Sport Cup title at next month's final event, the Rally Yorkshire.

After taking victory on the opening two gravel events of the Swift Sport Cup series, Taylor and co-driver Jemma Bellingham are hoping to upstage the blokes and add the Swift title to their growing CV.
Taylor is the first obverseas driver to claim the British Ladies crown.

Rally Yorkshire will take place on September 26.
