One of the most successful female motorsport drivers is in the country.

Michele Mouton chairs the delegation responsible for safety in WRC rallies, so she is here to check our rally route, safety, planning and special stages ahead of the WRC return to Auckland at the end of September.

Mouton was the first woman to win the German Rally Championship in 1986 with Peugeot, the first female to win a major championship and she has had success all around the world, earning her an induction in the Hall of Fame.
