Queen of Speed tells the incredible story of one woman's rise to the top of the male-dominated world of rallying in the 70’s and 80’s. From the streets of Monte Carlo to the deserts of Africa, Michèle Mouton defied the odds as she broke her way into the motorsport world at a time when rallying was at its fastest and most dangerous.

She made history as the first and only woman to win rounds of the FIA World Rally Championship and the last woman to compete in top-level rallying, cementing her reputation as one of the greatest motorsport drivers of all time.


It’s a marvellous documentary focusing on the fearsome, high speed and often terrifying Group B era of rallying in the 80’s when Mouton went up against the best drivers in the world and beat them at their own game. The film is a reminder of what a different age it was, exemplified in the spectacularly sexist car ads it gleefully re-runs The Guardian

A classy film….a time of seriously sexy Porsches The Times
