Mouton arrives in Dunedin for Otago Rally
The 2008 Otago Rally’s biggest drawcard, French woman Michele Mouton, has arrived in Dunedin for this weekend’s Dunlop International Classic Rally.
Mouton, the winner of four World Rally Championship events for Audi in the 1980s, will drive a Ford Escort RS1800 this weekend.
It will be her first drive in a special stage rally for 24 years, and the first time that she has paired with former co-driver, Fabrizia Pons, since she retired.
Mouton tested the Escort yesterday (see the TV3 footage below) and will commence her reconnaissance of the event tomorrow.
