Nathalie Richard - five-time CARS champion co-driver and teammate of Antoine L’Estage in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mitsubishi Lancer - took some time out of her busy schedule to talk with CARS about her very successful rally career and why she loves rally:
You’re one of the most successful co-drivers in the history of the sport in North America, having competed with two multiple-time champions on both sides of the border. How does it feel to be at the top of the sport?
It feels great to be where I am in this sport! I love what I do and I'm privileged to be able to do it at this level. We've been to so many places and seen so many things that I would ordinarily never have the opportunity to see and do if it weren't for rallying. You don't get to our level easily or without absolute passion for rallying. We definitely put a lot of work into it and for the most part, it pays off!
