You know hello to everyone. I and i have been president of the women in winter. Sports commission for less than us and we have been working on different objectives than different aspect. The men wanted to close to anchorage and to help the more participation of women in all areso hours that means not only competition but also you know engineering. Technician make any official team principal communication. We all the different areas. We also want to demonstrate that Motorsport is open to all. This is very important for me. I was sports. It's almost unique sport. Where men and women can do compete together unequal term. So it's really important to show that we can we can make it And also the the third aspect we have been developing of course different social and educational program for you know from the base of the pyramid to the top level. We have been working hard. And i think we have now a good pass way all the way through from the button to the base with our different programs. Finally the last mission would say is that we want to promote the place of women in our sport. Tender with the faa we. We tried to get so more women in leadership position for example So we we have quite a enough work if we want to sunday. Sounds like it now. The latest initiative is the goals on track rising stars competition which is all now and and concludes at the end of this week. You scout the world for the best female driving talent. H twelve to sixteen and through a series of evaluation camps. You've arrived at the shortlist of full and obviously they'll be shooting out in maranello a chance to become. I believe a ferrari academy for probably dr academy member and potentially the first female ferrari driver in the at four series next year so obviously getting towards the closing stages now how how is the program going in a. What's the standard like i in. No it's really living up to all expectations we can have. It's those lisa fantastic and very innovative program to detect the female talent for the future in the force. The a big step forward for youngsters you know. We can help them to reach their their professional career really a critical age when they often stock motor sports. Because they don't see any future. And also i would say the collaboration with ferrari's for us fantastic oppourtunity. It's a real recognition of The progress we continue to make after ten years work of the commission. It's also a four year program which is very important. That means we know it's a Ability the program and the lots of expectation so we really up too soon to be able to see the first female ferrari-driver by joining them the academy so it's really great We had that the castellano last week. with winfield racing schools organization the shootout than the training camp. One were very good success. We have twenty goals a nice fourteen nationality different nationality so it was a good potential a good that most and then i would say very strong fighting spirit. We could see the girl. They will really motivated so the standard is quite high. Some girls where for example a very close to the time of the male reference lap. So we could see great great probation of the drivers. Does it feel to you that you're getting more engagement now from from younger girls to get involved in motorsport since the goes on track program started. Can you see a kind of a. if it's not yet as soon nami can you see at least a wave growing. Yes absolutely we. We know we have attracted to you know at least thousands of young girls with our program and i tried to open their the ice on motorsport. The original girls on tracks program started in two thousand eighteen With the eu founding the it was a competition modell at grassroots level for the twelve to eighteen years old Gus with the cutting challenge. Since then we've partnered with the sousa vote and the formula and the now it's a also an educational model for the eight to eighteen years old which allows to increase the number of the girls participating so this program includes on enough tracks activity all connected to the stem subject It's appealing to many and the we try to open the high. You know with the developing cutting media workshop bor we have a road safety activities of course and the environmental awareness. We do also piddling to engineering. We cover quite a lot of a subject. We have also developed a tool kit for our is said to us them. National go on track events around the world and this is also attracting more young still so finally. All those programs are helping us to to get more young outs because we have to fill in this base of the pyramid geno. It's a very important michelle. Let let's look more widely the topic of women in more just bought. I mean first of all. It can't be right. You're still the only woman to win world championship rallies kenan. Yeah you know it's City because if you look okay. I my time. We had a lot of women in running today. We are struggling to find women in rallying. We have more women in racing so hard to explain. You know it's it's it's it's tough first of all stefo everyone to go to the to the top of the discipline you know especially in formula one. Only few men are city. How many name you can you can say you know. Maybe maximum planty so. It's not easy to to reach the top of the pyramid then compared to men our base. It's very small and that's been too small so of course fewer could rise to the top. It's evidence but for me. I am convinced. The best way to get out is to you know i w- increase base of pyramid. Have more girls interested in motorsport then to go and continue fighting in a mixed championship. This is very important and maybe also to give more opportunity. An insert material to to to women. It's it's very necessary to progress in to increase your motivation. You know it's Reaching a you know your limit and going up you know when you have good condition and we can see now you know so. This is a work. Our commission is to create more opportunity to work with professional team and also manufacture now. And i think we we're nearly there you mentioned. Its ten years that you've been you've been at the helm of the women most commission what have been some of the highlights in that time. And how will you sort of focusing for. Throw things forward now. How are you focusing the mission looking ahead. So the next ten years yes over. The past ten years Many program and initiative of course have been conducted the to support our missions. If i have to say some for me very important. Flush the drivers assessment that we did navarro provide us with the really concrete to data on all the top females drivers since then we have been approached by professional teams to discuss our selection list and work with them and so this was really a big step because suddenly when you have the confidence and the trust of the professional team will manufacture. It shows you on the right way. I sing and now drivers getting Testicle -tunities endurance in two years. The iran dance teams are very successful in. Gt full from this year on. Thanks to reach meetings Racing team we had the first female crew in olympia to it's really a fantastic tunde. Boosting finished nine position that limo in in great condition so it's it's a very tactical achievement for for us and the. What is more important is that they are continuing progressing in improving and i can tell you that the team principal in olympia to is very pleased with their performance. Incredible the progress. They have done since since long. So the second point for me the highlight is of course the golsen track program at the time. It was a very ambitious programme with a the eu and the the we had eight a aisin faulkners around europe rope. It was a great success and now we have over girls from track. Rising star with showing manufacturers interest than support for girls is a great possibility to to be part. Oh for this famous theory academy so Hold that for me. Demonstrate that The the work of the commission. We have been progressing and the we are getting more support now and and this is really the key for me the key of the of trying to find solution of the church.

"One Thousand Nine hundred seventy mark a shift in the race as it was the first time since nineteen twenty six than an unser family member didn't participate in the race. However, a new generation of family would soon begin racing with Bobby Unser Jr. entering the race in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six, the nineteen seventies also saw changes the open-wheel Division. As, low slung mid engine cars started to challenge the more upright front engine sprint cars which had previously dominated L. Ever. It was the eighties that would see the biggest change in the race center's inception with the creation of the rally division in Nineteen eighty-one the addition of rally would bring wave of excitement and change the pikes peak hill climb as Europeans. Like Martin Shock Ari Vatanen and our girl Michelle mouton got involved nineteen eighty-four Michelle placed second in an Audi sport. Quattro s one with breezy upon is riding shotgun nineteen ninety-five mouton returned to try and seal the deal this time driving solo in her words towards my WRC car short wheelbase be out the US one but modified we worked a lot. On a Tude Electric's unlike current drivers mouton had no paddle shifter just manual gearshift when she recollected, it's what you know. So you just got on with it, and of course, Audi had also introduced all wheel drive to the Colorado rockies forever changing how the course was attacked. Wow. That was the first time in all wheel drive car that is think about. Michelle's words the track was smooth gravel, very wide open. You started at around fifteen hundred meters above sea level in the forest and reach forty five hundred meters in less than twenty kilometers and twelve minutes. So it's quite few. One time I drove up with clouds beneath me in some drivers in open top cars had excuse me masks I didn't find the altitude at problem I do off what high altitudes I get real bad altitude sickness like I went camping one time and in the Sierra. Nevada's near Bishop and like the town is at like eight thousand feet, which is fine. But like our campsite was up at like ninety five hundred and then we went on, we like went even higher at like ten thousand and I was like I was dying. Did you just get sick or I've never had autism altitude sickness or a really bad headache it's easier to get dehydrated to. And like just really short of breath of course but mostly had headache was the worst part for sure one is she that was somewhat surprising for an uphill course was the actual drops in elevation many of which were near the top of the course. The took driver's a great deal of trust in the downforce of their car to take the down slopes at speed and trust they wouldn't just lift off the track of. Course Michelle wasn't exactly welcomed by the race's organizers. They find her for speeding on the practice starts in, pulled her in front of a hastily assembled tribunal mu. Thomas convinced that they quote didn't want me to win. So they find something they believe can be a big penalty. She took the setback in stride and the course by four setting a blistering all-time Track Record of eleven minutes twenty five seconds point three, nine, hell yeah. Dos. Queen as the Europeans invaded, it seemed like it was the end of an era of. Family although his nephew Allen's our junior and won the event in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three in a Waugh's Awad key wells Coyote Chevy uncle. As was known had retired and was now living in New Mexico. That was until he received a phone call from an unlikely source. Audi. Are you saying Howdy howdy they're not Howard. You'll be saying Lt Lt Hardy. Stanzi. They built a one of a car in five thousand CS quattro wanted to fly bobby out to tell data set some new records. There was an offer. Bobby couldn't refuse to combine the clearly superior car with bobbies. Unmatched Knowledge Pikes, peak, and break their own record that Michelle had set the previous year. But this time with an unser of peek behind the. Wheel Bobby couldn't refuse and Audi flew him to Talladega at a test drive a heavily modified turbocharged five thousand C. S quattro bobby set sixteen new clothes, course records nearing speeds of two hundred and twenty miles per hour the bobbies words at traffic three years and spent millions of dollars never could get there two hundred mile per hour record that they wanted. I did that on the first run that I did. Next Bobby wanted a chance to drive an Audi at the course. He'd made his Rocky Mountain playground big old Pike's highest peak out. He had accomplished German rally driver Walter Rodgers in mind for Pike's peak. But Unser had a trick up his sleeve to get his spot according to bobby when I did Talladega never signed a release and there I got them a whole bunch of world records. So I just nicely. told him. If, you want to advertise Talladega you're GONNA have to do pack speak with meet. Walter role or Laura would ever can go next year. That's how I got my ride in the out a deal. My brother Al tells me I'm crazy. I see shit up Al Bobby you're crazy. Crazy al.. Hair weird though he's writing them parody songs. Bobby might indeed have been crazy. He hadn't won pikes peak since nineteen sixty eight and he was now fifty two years old six, hundred and fifty horsepower WRC. Car He was driving at pikes was vastly different from the muscle cars driven in multiple victories in the sixties his blown away by the turbo boost which was operated by what he called a little dinky. On and off switch. Among other modifications, bobby insisted upon for the all wheel drive, he demanded that the limited slip differential on the front be removed entirely enabling one tired of turn independently of the other although he was warned, it would cause the car to run dangerously hot bobby didn't care and the results spoke for themselves. Bobby drove his Audi sport quattro Sol straight through Michelle moutons eighty five record beating it by nearly sixteen seconds with a time of eleven minutes. Nine seconds point to to Audi proudly put out an ad boasting bobby unser climbs eighteen thousand feet on all fours. Nice. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, seven, the Audi hot streak continued as bobby stepped aside to finally give Walter. Roll, his shot at the course at first the accomplish German rally driver struggled according to Bobby who is now in a coaching role for the German role was treating Pike's peak like a rally course. Bobby reminded him the courses constant elevation made it unlike any circuit course and encouraged role to watch tape of? Previous runs apparently, a bobbies advice paid off because role managed to shred Bobby's record by nearly twenty seconds. Now, clocking in at an astounding ten minutes, forty seven seconds, and for context that was nearly five minutes faster than the first post. World War Two record set in nineteen, forty, six by Louis Unser in only past five years the record had been brought down by nearly a minute all this brought up tantalizing question. Could the ten minute barrier?.

"Speed. And then he drives away nine hundred miles an hour. Pop up up up up up up up. A. Do say. I think I'm in love with that man. Oldfield actually had a pretty incredible story. He'd started out as a bicycle racer before segue to car racing after a chance meeting with Henry Ford ever heard of him at this time Ford was just starting to build cars. Oldfield Race Ford's car number nine nine originating the style of sliding through turns like a motorcycle racer instead of breaking as was common practice at the Time Aka frigging drifting stews, the og drift king, and it's kind of foreshadows like how Michelle Mouton drove on the mountain 'cause like was that the second to last turn where everyone had to slam the brakes she? Just went for it and like slid out and use that those rally skills. Yeah. As we'll see, burner oldfield also became known for stunts including a so-called championship of the universe series sick. We raised a Fiat against the biplane which did laps around the track overhead. He was also the first driver to top one hundred miles an hour at the Indianapolis speedway. Hell. Yeah. What a man sky. What a man? What a man what a man what a turn of the century. As noted, in the Los Angeles Times article, the fire starting of this annual contest over the highest highway in the world will include a Classy, which is two hundred and thirty cubic inches and under a class C, two, hundred, thirty, one, two, three, hundred cubic inches, and a class D free for all for the looney tunes. Ladder event is for the pence challenge trophy bonds. Valued at ten thousand dollars. The course measures twelve miles and twenty, two, hundred feet, and in order to negotiate this hill climb to the summit of the famous mountain, cars will have to conquer a rise of six, thousand, six, hundred and eighty six feet with a maximum grade of ten point, five percent and an average grade of seven percent and exciting contest is issue x eighty, three, you want an onion. Own Field was driving a French dealer automobilia also in the field according to the LA Times too hot sins three cadillacs, studebaker special pues Yo three traumas, cars, and several kings in a number of other specials from Detroit and Indianapolis factories the article boasted that the event promises to draw the biggest crowd that ever visited Colorado spree you. Know, the reporter just fell out of the window. It wasn't Oldfield who distinguished himself however, instead, it was an unknown twenty, two year old driver named Ray Lenz, the youngest and the field who scaled the mountain in a respectable twenty minutes and fifty five seconds beating Yang and Felker's time by eight hours and forty minutes. He drove a Romano Demon special as car in the field somewhat ominously Pike's peak official facebook page notes that Lynch was never heard from again after winning visas He just did his thing and then just got the hell out of there. You what if he was a ghost? Oh, that's it. Dude. He was a ghost he was in how and the devil was like, Hey, man. IF YOU WANNA get out of how you gotTA drive. My car. They. Romano. Special. As. Me All regular mom. And then rea- was like all right I'll drive your car and then he did it and then he got to go to heaven. Where he met up with Lil, peep to pot the pope and freaking Eddie Van Halen. Unfortunately, immediately, after the inaugural race, the event was put on hold as one preoccupied the globe. Yeah preoccupied. That's a bit. Understand. Yeah we were preoccupied one. Yeah. Listen I. Know I haven't texted you back in a couple days. Like. World War going on yeah, I've been preoccupied. Rocky Pied, with trench warfare. Peace and pikes peak would return in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty as the hill-climb grew into an annual event. Early days of the race were rough and wild drivers drove with mechanics shotgun. So they could fix their rig. If it broke down shortcuts off the road were also common occurrences apparently didn't specify that you had to stay on the track dominant in the nineteen twenties. Races was Glen Schultz, who won the open wheel title seven times and a ten year span these like Schumacher of hill. Climbs. He drove a stutz winning eighteen minutes twenty five seconds in Nineteen, twenty seven. Every racing event seems to create dynasties and Pike's peak was no different in the thirties. A driver named Louis Unser started competing at pikes peak Schultz in his stutz and unser would become fierce competitors at the event with Schultz winning five times for his part. Unser would win nine races from nineteen thirty, four to nineteen fifty-three kicking off an unser family tradition that continued for decades. Yeah. The unser named very recognizable. In racing circles big time big time racing family there. Yeah. After pausing for World War Two, the next era of pikes peak was known as Indycar era with the event in some years actually awarding points for the USA see Indycar Championship most drivers later modified indy cars with dirt tires and beefed up suspension. Following the Q. Raya Lenz cars got smaller and lighter over time as drivers realized that downside of heavy on a constant incline in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three, the Sports Car Club of America the S. C. C. A. also became a sponsor as a wider range of cars began to compete in various divisions. The progression on-track was relentless with the course record getting broken every year for the next decade in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four at the thirty second edition of the race the fifteen minute barrier was shattered by local. Colorado Keith. Andrews. Many of the best drivers were locals who Were used to driving in the rockies in nineteen fifty five Louis answers nephew bobby unser debuted at pikes peak Bob who would go on to win the indy five hundred in Nineteen Sixty, eight, seventy, five, eighty one was a fearless racer who who'd served as sharp shooter in the Air Force. You got to be a pretty good shot to be a sharpshooter in the air force shoot from a plane. Anyway. Bobby had big shoes to fill when he started racing at pikes peak excuse me which some called Unser speak because of his uncle's success uncle anglers piece. Peaking. Bobby finished fifth in his first race which you'd think would win him some family respect until he looked at the standings and realized that two of the four guys that beat them whereas brothers. Talk about in rivalry edson uncomfortable Thanksgiving am I right The next year Bobby would win his first championship. The first of thirteen on the mountain unser pushed the course record steadily down nearly every year from the fourteen minutes the thirteen to the twelve eventually notching twelve o five, point eight, nine, nineteen, sixty, two with his unser special which we'll take a look at right here I feel like every. Every race car. From like back in the day is called the blink special. Yeah. This is basically a sprint cars looks like it looks like a quarter midget maybe not maybe a quarter midget with with a dirt tires on it. That's pretty that's sick dicey do yeah crazy. Yeah. Imagine driving up a dirt road at speed in one of those. Riding around the turns. That's insane. Anyway for much of the fifties and Sixties Bobby was the undisputed King of the hill. By.

This episode I'd say that's one of the more icon cars of the Grand Juries Mo- franchise. Absolutely it's a definitely a huge memory from my childhood. Yeah I don't know a lot about it. I know it's a wild wild ride I know they recently paved it yes. Is Dirt for a long time I know a lot of times they bring out like some very experimental technologies as they do the cars very wild looking. A lot about it already. I think Volkswagen do they have like the electric record right now the ID are yes. Yeah. It's called. The. It's Short for the OPTOMETRIST's. Go so fast it'll fix your vision, which is why I'm hoping my co pay can cover it. No but you're right the the the Volkswagen Idee are has done really well, as we'll see in this episode I, don't know too much about the actual course but I do like just from writing so much about different people in different cars and companies and stuff I know that like Hennessy took his like gt three, thousand there something I know that Michelle Mouton took her outy they're the most recent one is that like? The. Porsche bill that's all carbon fiber. I can't remember who did it but it was like super thick car and it went to the last pikes peak and I think it did really well. But yet the cars are sick they are they're very sick there Imagine dear, viewer or listener a group B. Carr at least in the eighties and nineties there was like a groupie car with more Arrow nowadays the the the the cars they bring are a lot more prototype in nature in terms of design more superior shapes not necessarily based on production cars at all But yeah, this is an iconic event in the World Motor Sport. So sit back, strap yourself in. and. Let's go to the top. Pike's peak is a giant among giants. It's the highest mountain in the front range of the rocky mountains. It is formed from billion-euro old granite. That's right. Billion with a B. and was first named by the native people who lived in shadow the called the mountain.

"Their car again and get back on the road. Oh Yeah. The different different breed men who tom pushed on and the nineteen eighty two season still proved to be your best. She clinched second place at the C. which. Made out of the first German mark to win the manufacturers world title. That's amazing wow. That was the first time at the season's, and she placed thirteen points ahead of idol turned teammate, Hannah Mikola. But despite edging out her rival role in multiple rallies remained twelve points behind him in the standings and placed second overall narrowly missing the championship. Her amazing season did not go unnoticed however and that year she was given the international rally driver of the year award at the inaugural autosport awards gala even for Breezy upon one big receiving the how the trophy, the highest honor for co-driver not only is Walter rural like I my like view of him has gone down since reading all this his name is also really annoying to pronounce yeah. Like every time I, see it in the in the script I'm like. Walter Roll. Roll rural rural. Too much. going. On Your name dog. DOTS and alienated up. You're not. You got three consonants in a row dog. Get some veggies in their. Is Invalid in there you Dork. When. You were in school where Utah like that continents were boys in vows were girls what what's way kindergarten? In kindergarten, all the vowels were girls at all the incidents were boys and I guess. Why is like? Fluid. androgynous. Yeah. I didn't I never heard that. I think it's like like there's like this teaching kit that included like some like personified like letters. that. Whereas on our wall I think it came with a song. You know. J. The letters. Yeah and all the continents were there was like I'm. As cucumbers and And all the vowels were girls. I mean, that's I don't. That's weird. How like once you start realizing how everything is so gendered yeah it's crazy. Yeah it's it's bizarre letters. Like, literally do not have gender but we're GonNa make twenty one of a man. Now here's here's my question where do number what were the numbers like? They weren't. Nothing they were just numbers. That's so weird Bonnie it's like it's like somehow somehow they figured out how to make women less represented in the alphabet. Everyone knows S, is a woman, right? Guy. What S S is like a curvy woman yea. Yea. Let's. That's unreal. Now I that's so crazy. Looking back perhaps for the best that moutons father a man. So concerned with his daughter's safety passed on when he did because an even more perilous league of rallying was about to be born. In Group B if rallying was already an extreme sport, nineteen eighty three's emergence of group B. Took things to an insane next level just finishing these races of live was a feet. So naturally, Michelle Mouton with her world famous tenacity and need for speed was all in. Group B, is awesome Groupie cars are some of the coolest cars ever built group B. is a bad idea. While Group A cars had more restrictions and were essentially production cars turned into rally cars. The Group B rally class had very few restrictions and its cars were designed for rallies specifically then turned into production cars They're basically like in. McLaren series we talked about the Canam cars in the seventies. These are basically Canam cars that you drive in the woods. Yeah. Driving the woods in Finland. group-group. Your B. is like if he took the NFL right, you took football and then you're like, all right guys no helmets no pads. You don't have to wear any of that stuff. Also, you're allowed to do any drugs that you want. You can do steroids you can do math you can do for PCP though. Start. Your engines have to wear pads you can do drugs and also here's a car. So if you have cars. Yeah. So groupie cars needed a roof two seats and you had to keep its weight as low as possible, and that was pretty much it. These lax regulations resulted in superlight aerodynamics speed racer's with all wheel drive and huge engines. Then some cases cranked out more than five hundred horsepower. These machines were perfect from return who never shied away from cars that were considered too difficult to drive more and more manufacturers entered into the sport spectatorship rocketed Groupie had ushered in the Golden Age of rally.

"In the halls of racing. Audi yes. That Audi extended an offer to mouton derive for the manufacturer in the one, thousand, nine, hundred, one season and she enthusiastically accepted she said quote we. Signing without he meant. Sheared. The on a team with her longtime idol how new Michaela enland he was always way up there for me says, mouton one of the greats Meka proved an enthusiastic mentor. He shared his tricks of the trade and taught her left foot braking, which radically improved her driving. I that's crazy. She got this far without doing that. That is, yeah. He also helped adapt her driving style to fit out radical new rally car that they'd be debuting that season the turbocharged. all-wheel drive quattro s wind. Audi's Quattro s one was two point one liter fuel injected straight five to to making five, hundred, forty her spurs to the crank beyond that it was the first turbocharged and first all wheel drive rally car a vehicle that would revive interest in the sport and also changed the game forever like like we people say changed the game forever a lot but rarely does something literally changed the game forever you know. Like. This is like a new ball in basketball like this is like the three point line like I think it's like like in flubber when he puts flubber on the bottom of his shoe and he's really good at basketball. Yeah. Remember when the talked about that in the last dance that was like such a huge moment for the NBA. Yeah. That then they were finally able to beat them on stars. And take take their back or whatever happened but beyond Mikola or the legendary quattro perhaps the most notable thing Audi gave Michelle Matan was twenty six year old Italian co-driver Fabrizio ponds ponds was focused calm and endearingly quirky with her thick oversized grandma glasses. She likes really like now she looked looks like a hipster like if she lived nowadays but back, then it's like you're twenty six year wearing these like granny glasses. She's cool. She's super cool. She had formerly been a motocross racer and rally driver before. Switching to co driving experience and knowledge that undoubtedly improved her work as a navigator cars coming go. But the partnership between Mouton in ponds would last a lifetime Audi debuted the quattro at money Carlo in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one, a handled the treacherous snowy roads like a champ totally outmatching the rear wheel drive cars like Opel a scanner four hundred and the Renault five turbo unfortunately though Mikla and baton were both forced retire Mikla after a crash and Mouton do her feel being contaminated with sand. Sanit gets everywhere. But even so they're stunning performances and speed in the earlier stages. Prove the Karachi was a force to be reckoned with things went better at the WR. In Portugal Mouton, was the first Audi to finish and took fourth in the rally overall. But then the season took a dip camshaft gave way in Corsica forcing her to retire and she was excluded from the Acropolis Rally after. They were discovered with her and her teammates cars in. Finland. When Nikola squeaked out a finish third mouton was back in thirteenth. Then came the serpentine multi surface car destroying rally in San Remo. With ponds calmly uttering directions mouton tore through the course over tarmac and gravel. But. On the final day, they're driveshaft broke but they were in first with Finnish driver Henri toivonen pushing hard and second with one stage to go mouton turned to her co-driver and said quote one, of us, meaning her Henry will make a mistake and not finish the event. So for me, I will take the stage as if it was the first stage of the. Rally not the last one like there's not any pressure on anything. That's exactly how she drove and sure enough. Henry Toivonen made the error mouton ponds beat him by over three minutes making history in the process Michelle Mouton. Not only secured the first win for Audi and all wheel drive car but became the first and to this day only woman to win a WRC rally. So the drive shaft broke, did it just become like two wheel drive then? I would assume so. I'm betting that the drive shaft like probably get win the two wheel drive and they were able to limp it to the end stage, replaced the shaft, and then just drive calmly. But high fliers don't fly for long ask a bird following the San Remo Victory Mouton saw stretch of crashes and finished eighth at the end of the season compared to her teammate Mikolas third. One thousand nine, hundred, two seasons started with a return Monte Carlo Rally that proved problematic from Utah time and time. Again, it was stage twelve. You just set the fastest time for the treacherous Cold Tarini Mountain Pass was cruising in third when she hit a patch of ice slid off the road and slammed into a stonewall at seventy miles per hour ish co-driver. Upon. Suffered a concussion mouton knee injury. But both made a quick recovery. They return to the rally stage this time in Sweden. So just to clarify on that San remo rally that she won her crew. helped. Repair the broken driveshaft, but it cut it cut the lead down to thirty six seconds. They were like three minutes ahead. They broke the driveshaft the dudes came to fix it, and then she barely got back in time to like maintain her first place. Wow. That's insane. So it broke on the course and they she was so far ahead that even fixing it on the course wasn't an yeah to while bringing back. That's crazy. We'll get back to more passed. Over sponsors.

"Zygotes. Other reason she's really it's really funny. Man It just never changes dude. It's the same that you'll. I'll be like I watch a lot of like I've been getting into NASCAR oval racing a lot lately and I've been watching the ARCA series, which is like one of the feeder series for NAS car and. One of the competitors is Haley Degan. Brian deegan daughter. Just social media presence of like any driver she and you know that. Like. It's just. Like she can't catch a break when it comes to like people like particularly people in twitch chats. It's like if she's not having a good race which happens a lot in oval racing and it's just like it's it's a it's a flip the coin like she gone, and then like if she is doing well, then somehow it's re the racist rigged to make her look good. It's like no, like you guys were all the same people watching this every week you guys know how Oval Racing Works Right? Like she's a decent drivers she's good like give her a chance. They don't say the same things about like. Other drivers in the series, and it's just because Haley is a woman and it's very frustrating but it's Even more frustrating to read this about people saying. Musha moutome was heavily different engine. Now. Especially in gene anyway. Sorry. Continue much like Haley, begin who on ignored the haters s she geared up for the real event of the season, her driver debut at the nineteen seventy, four world rally championship at the Tour de Corsa we're only a year earlier she had competed in first race ever as a CO driver just twenty two years old Mouton drove her out in one. Ten to finish twelfth out of one, hundred and two an amazing achievement for first time. WRC driver at their first international rally. But Muthana held a more personal victory in all of this finishing this high in WC, round meant her car was subject to a thorough check by officials insuring it met regulations and complied with class rules it of course did and so the rumors about her. Engine stopped. By the season's end Mouton was crowned both the French and European ladies champion the following season. Her car was upgraded to a one point eight liter. She bumped her twelve place toward a course of finish up to seventh and she maintained the title of Overall Ladies Champion Hell Ya, and keep in mind. This is a rear engine rear wheel drive car that she's taken all these courses on. So that's pretty cool. I E. IT'S A squirrelly boy. Do you ever heard a snap oversteer? Don't lift off the throttle in the turns Michelle I know I don't have to tell you that I'm just saying explaining. remains. One of the greatest drivers ever drive a car I've never driven. Outside of W. R. Rutan Dabbled and other types of racing and nineteen, seventy five she entered the twenty four hours of the Maw with an all female team made up of two other French racing. Christine, detrimental, and Marianne. Their chariot was Simcoe powered Moi net ellen seven five with the transact transmission from a porsche in the middle of the race it began to rain hard while other drivers slowed to adapt the elements. mouton threw caution to the wind charged full speed ahead on slick tyres she started passing car after car even more powerful ones as her crew radioed in repeatedly demanding that she pit to change to wet tyres but Michelle Mouton didn't like to be told what to do. She ignored them. You must come Tuesday Pete. We must put the tires with this with grooves on. By beep. Michel she has turned off zero I can't hear anything. She hung up on me she. Anyway she ignored her team and she switched on her rallying brain and continued on the slicks. The team ended up finishing first in their two liter prototype class and twenty first overall class victory not bad. Baton says she was pushed to do more circuit racing after this especially in formula three, which might have led you know up to formula to perhaps like Ayrton Senna maybe up to Formula One. But she said quote, it wasn't my cup of tea. It was not my cup of Merlo I loved racing alone against the clock. My character wasn't cut out for circuit racing. You know they can only call it Merlo it's from. I was GONNA say trader Joe's Merlot boxed wine That's the real real deal stuff while she didn't leave the sick Dila soft with a thirst for this kind of racing she did leave with the interest of her first major sponsor, the French oil company known as Elf. In. I've always actually wondered what else was because I've seen that on a lot of vintage race cars and now I know it's a French oil company. So not very surprising elf-sponsored Mouton for the nineteen seventy, six rally season where she earned an eleventh place finish at the WRC rally Monte Carlo, as well as an impressive second place finish at both the rally by own Basque at the ER criterion out being. Not. So mouthful however, car trouble prevented her from finish the rallies at San Ramo anti-bse and the grueling car breaker tour Decossa or only eleven of eighty eight crews even made it to the end. Wow. The seventy six season SOM- UTANS switch cars for the newer a three ten but moutons career would really pick up speed in one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven when she was signed by Fiat she was now officially a factory driver she had made it to the other side of the snowbank. Have you seen this a-3 ten I've never seen this car before it's so cool. Things pretty sick. Like A. It's got French. Three hundred Z X. Vibes I wonder if Our Boy George Eto design this. Oh. It looks very data. Yeah Dude if you had that, you're like the king of every west La car show did like if you if you should up to dais in that. Oh. Man You get a free coffee for sure. So many bees would be jockeying you. You'd get high five to death. This is like the most leather gloves driving guy car I've ever seen. This was huge from Utah who drove not only for herself but for her earliest supporter, her father he loves driving she later said he loved fast cars and I think he would have loved to do what I did. Peer father had been a prisoner of war for five years and never had the opportunity to compete rally but his daughters rising success allowed him to live vicariously they were off to Fiat. The. Nineteen seventy seven season Fiat had mouton driving the one thirty, one, a barth and Muthana. Hated it. She said it was like a big truck mounted car and called it terrible to drive, which is hilarious because it's a tiny car. Yeah. I'm sure Fiat was totally excited about regardless of her feelings about the avars handling mouton achieve consistently good results in it over the next few years and at one point she also raised Lancia Stratos. H F driving it to seventh in Monte Carlo. That's cool outside of the WRC however, Mouton was searching for a car. She felt more kindred with than the Barth and she found one in the Porsche nine eleven career are s I'll hell Ya this classic rear engine, Rear Wheel drive car was a step. Up from the Fiat and a perfect match from utahns fearless driving style, she drove the portion of victory at the race rally in Spain, her first R, C victory, as well as three second place finishes at smaller National Races. In France, that year she finished runner-up in the overall ERC to rally icon Bernard Darn each back on the WRC states twenty-seven-year-old Mouton was racking up podiums in her Fiat one thirty one a bar here in third at the rally den tabs again, the eclipsed by our Nisha Darniche. Again. Being eclipsed by Dr Niche but won the nineteen seventy-eight toward a France automobile a huge accomplishment the season she plays fifth in the standings and fourth in the FA Cup for drivers she was on the rise on the path to being a great driver, but it was an unexpected call from an automotive giant would put.

I think we providing seamless behind the the point the point w was coming on anything everything is done such an attention grabbing controversial way whether it's iran has massively massively capitalized bringing the women debate right back to the forefront and we've still action the brands hatch. I think the d._t._m. Needs w series. Maybe maybe moten w series i am now. It may impact <unk>. It's not just started a conversation. It's is made women being racing drivers much more of an everyday thing already. I would say and yeah that's mega. I agree. I don't want to have to do another special issue. I don't have a special cover. I want us to this suggests be facts that you buy out his ball go towards bought dot com and you read about both men and women as standard every other week forever dasa expirations of heaven but it's interesting isn't it because it has taken such a long time in the in the special magazine as a outing elisabeth unique who race in the two thousand season season <hes> <hes> very very quick driver and so they always have been women around but never this this focal point. I guess of a single angle a single championship so i guess that kind of a full consolidation as well as as wade how and other things in the supplement and features running online covered as well but it's wait how in some ways well the world has gradually gotten better for equality through the decades in a steady curving away most dealing with go backwards it was more common to see female competitors and had michelle mouton being <hes> well right championship star star of the eighties and that sort of thing <hes> in have might have more women racing one in the seventies than we have done since then yet you look back at the seventy s as kind of <hes> goldie carry on the film in in it's actually it's two women now say not that i was there. I'm not that old by previous conversation suggestions forty it really quickly. He's done lots reveal how you did it. In series of lottery wins the the most likely way of a doing a beer it is we have seen other things going on that she that the issue covers <hes> <hes> covers women drag racing in the mona had the old female <hes> seem lemond this year and then it goes jamie chadwick being being at the having so little for holding formula one with with that. I guess that's the thing that everyone wants to look forward to kind of the the big lightning rod which would be a female formula one drive coach needs to kind of happen organically and on merits i guess rather than through <hes> so that posted discrimination if you like but that would probably be the moment where the needle moves the most isn't it yeah i think so and that's that's completely speaking to debit card at the weekend and he said that <hes> they ah regardless of what happens moving forward any driver right now he wants to get from one has to think that they're capable of competing with mac sapard and that's a really terrifying prospect. I think for anybody so yeah well yeah exactly so i think it does have to happen completely completely organically incomplete enough today this harmon like vitamins like there's no harm in helping things he's been yeah the best analogy but yeah they do check out that issue also sport magazine with jamie chadwick on the cover.
