Driving through the desert at 200km/h isn’t a sport for the faint hearted. Molly Taylor swapped equestrian for rally car driving as a teenager, and since then she has become the World Champion, Australian Champion, European Ladies Champion an d British Ladies’ Champion in the sport, she won the 2021 Extreme-E Championship and finished the iconic Dakar Rally, racing 8000km through the Saudi Arabian desert, earlier this year.

Molly sits down with host Sam Squiers to discuss:

  • Learning from her Mum, Coral, who was a four-time Australian champion co-driver
  • What rally car driving actually involves and the complex language shared between driver and co-driver
  • The challenges of competing in Europe in the early days
  • Getting the call to compete in the Extreme E Championship from former Formula One World Champion, Nico Rosberg, and how it felt to take out the win
  • The reality of competing in the Dakar Rally for 14 days in the desert
  • And the profound impact she’s having on young girls getting into the sport and her peer and close friend Harry Bates
