TWO of the world’s greatest female rally drivers got together when France’s Michèle Mouton and Australia’s Molly Taylor joined celebrations at the inaugural WRC Gala in Sydney on Monday night.
In 1982, competing for the Audi factory WRC team, Mouton took four victories and finished runner-up in the drivers’ world championship. She is still the last woman to compete in top-level rallying, but has turned her efforts in recent years to roles in the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile, including safety and the development of women’s participation in motorsport.
She has also mentored the international career of Sydney’s Molly Taylor, who on Sunday at Kennards Hire Rally Australia became the first woman to win the Australian Rally Championship.
