Minor began competing under her maiden name, Petrasko, before her marriage to rally engineer Gavin Minor. Her successful partnership with fellow Austrian Manfred Stohl ran from 2001 until the end of 2007 when Stohl’s lucrative support from oil firm OMV dried up following a frustrating campaign. Minor continued to work on WRC events as part of Henning Solberg’s safety note crew and was a natural choice to partner the Norwegian when he sought a new co-driver for 2010. A back injury sustained in a crash alongside Stohl on an Austrian championship event forced her to skip the season-closing rallies but she made a full recovery in time for the 2011 season, which she completed by winning the prestigious Michael ‘Beef’ Park Trophy.
It looks likely that Minor will co-drive for Evgeny Novikov in the 2013 season following his move to the Qatar M-Sport World Rally Team. When Novikov was left without a co-driver following the injury of Denis Giraudet last year, Minor assumed navigational duties and formed a successful relationship with the Russian.
