WRC Backstories: Michele Mouton

Behind the wheel of a rally car, Michéle Mouton transcended the world of rallying to become an iconic athlete of the eighties. In this captivating chat with Becs Williams, Mouton reveals that the career that redefined boundaries might never have been were it not for a chance encounter at a rock’n’roll dance off.

The 1982 WRC runner-up goes on to recall her rivalries with Ari Vatenen and Walter Röhrl and her special friendship with teammate Hannu Mikkola. Nothing is left untouched in the first edition of WRC Backstories for 2023 as she speaks openly of learning of her father’s death just hours before competing in the 1982 Rallye Côte d’Ivoire as well as the adversity that drove her to breaking the then-record for Pikes Peak in 1985.
