Molly Morter

Type of Racing: Off Road

Race Series: CORR, Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, SCORE

Introduction: At 5'3"and a mere 100 pounds, twenty-six year old Molly Morter may just be the perfect poster child for today's strong, dynamic, powerful, young woman of the new millennium. A rising star in her PR firm, Golin/Harris, by day and a top notch off-road race car driver on weekends, Molly is shooting off the charts with energy, ambition and belief in herself.

Although it has been said that she was a 'tom boy' at birth, Molly Nann Morter didn't start her off road racing career until 1995; ironically she studied ballet instead! Growing up in a racing family Morter was influenced by both her father and brother to get behind the wheel.

Morter's off road racing career expands from piloting 1600 Volkswagen dune buggies to 4-wheel drive trucks. Molly credits both her short course and endurance off road success to many people, some of which have moved on to the highest ranks of stock car racing. Brendan Gaughan and Jimmie Johnson, both former off road competitors and friends, have been influential in her racing career as well as her father, Guy, a former off road racer and her brother, Andy, the youngest pro rookie in the CORR series.

In 1998 Morter won both a CORR class championship and the prestigious CIORA Off Road World Championship title. Since that time she has been a contender through two different classes of modified dune buggies. In 2000 Molly was presented with the opportunity to compete in the Baja 2000 in a Class Three, short wheel base Blazer, 4-wheel drive. That historical race along with her recent second place finish and Rookie of the Year in the 2002 Pikes Peak Hill Climb include the highlights of her racing career to date.

Current Season: In 2002 Molly expanded her off road racing experience to include a much bigger vehicle and much steeper terrain. Slated by Mike Ryan Motorsports, Morter made her debut in the No. 33 Sirius Satellite Radio Sterling, a 1000-horsepower, 10,000 pound Big Rig she raced in the 2002 Pikes Peak Hill Climb.

Molly took home a second place finish in the tandem-axel division of the Big Rig class. Not only was Morter the first female to race a big rig up the mountain, she received the prestigious 'Rookie of the Year' award.
Morter achieved her goal of reaching the peak with a posted time of 15:56.4 on the 12.4-mile grueling racecourse.

Molly has tentative plans to race in three exhibition events this fall to promote STRANA, the Super Truck Racing Association of North America, a series which will feature semi truck racing on road courses in 2003. She also has plans to compete in a few of the CORR events as well as a future Baja event in the fall.

Racing Goals: Morter's racing goals include competing in the 2003 STRANA Series as well as developing her rally racing experience. She would also like to expand her talents to include oval and road course racing.

Personal: Molly has been very successful in promoting her off road racing career, being one of the only women in the country to compete in off road and semi racing, it certainly attracts a lot of attention. In the past two years she have been featured on CNNfn, MTV's "Girls Kick Ass", Stock Car Magazine, the Chicago Tribune and in May; Molly, her father and brother competed on Junkyard Wars, a very popular TLC show.

When Molly is not behind the wheel she is a very successful public relations executive at Golin/Harris International managing their motorsports division. Working daily with clients including Dodge Motorsports, Team Lowe's Racing, and Sirius Satellite Racing provides Morter a look from the other side of the fence.

Special Thanks to: Special thanks to Molly's family and friends for thier unconditional support as well as Sirius Satellite Radio, Sterling Trucks, Detroit Diesel, Shell, ZF Transmissions, Michelin, Allison, and Golin/Harris International.
