MOLLY TAYLOR REIGNS SUPREME AT THE MAKE SMOKING HISTORY FOREST RALLY

 

Molly Winner 200

Molly Taylor and Bill Hayes have reigned supreme at the Make Smoking History Forest Rally in Nannup, Western Australia today.

 

“I’ve been chasing this victory for a while, it’s my favourite rally, so I’ve always wanted to have this win and after a disappointing start in the first round to come back with this in round two was more than we could hope for,” Taylor said.

 

Nathan Quinn/Ben Searcy finished the day, and the rally, in second outright with the local crew of Brad Markovic/Toni Feaver in third. Both crews proved that staying below the radar and remaining consistent all weekend was the key to standing on the podium at the end of the event.

“It’s been really close out there which has been exciting and that’s what been great so far in the Championship, how close everyone is, so we’re just trying to do the best job we can do inside the car and that’s all we can do,” Taylor said.

Top Competitor Release 200px

 

Set up gremlins have caused a late vehicle change for Eli Evans and Glen Weston heading into the second round of the CAMS Australian Rally Championship® (ARC) in Western Australia this weekend.

 

Despite the team working around the clock to get the Mini Cooper AP4 ready for its Australian debut at the Make Smoking History Forest Rally, time was not on their side as they waited for parts to arrive.

 

“We’re still working on the tune of the Mini; basically we need some new injectors as currently the car is only capable of producing about 70% of the power that it should but the new parts didn’t arrive in time for us to get the car over to Western Australia,” Evans said.

About the Rally
 
The origins of the Karri Rally was the TOCOAN Rally back in the early 1980’s. TOCOAN was an acronym for They Only Come Out At Night and was run by the SWTCC.

The rally started in Australind and run through the Ferguson Valley, Brunswick Plantation and Stirling Dam. Around 30 years ago the club was short on helpers and asked the WACC to help and after a few years the WACC took over running the rally.

It was moved to Harvey, RallyHQ was next to the Hotel and Pizza Cafe and run through Stirling Dam and renamed the Stirling Stages. Then the local Police OIC didn’t like rallying and refused to give permission for the road to be closed in Harvey for a Service Park.

The WACC renewed their association with the SWTCC and moved HQ out to their Autocross Track in Benger and run up to Stirling Dam and back.

In 2016 Donnelly Mill wasn’t available and with an increased need for good telephone coverage the rally was moved into Manjimup and renamed the Karri Rally.

For 2017 some of the 2016 stages had been washed away and so the rally moved to Kin Kin and renamed the Kin Kin Rally. And now in 2018 it is moving to Nyamup and renamed back to the Karri Rally, although there isn’t a Karri tree anywhere near the place, but there are plenty of Jarrah trees.
