Wonder woman

The first woman to win a world championship rally, Audi's Michelle Mouton caught the public's imagination. Liz Turner talks to her. Living legends were thick on the ground at last year's Goodwood Festival of Speed and the paddock was full of cars powerful enough to shatter the eardrums of anyone who got too close.
