Mikaela Åhlin-Kottulinsky Facts

  1. When Mikaela won the Norisring leg of the 2014 season of the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup Germany, she became the first female driver in history to win a race in a Volkswagen supported championship.
  2. When Volkswagen decided to fold the event at the end of the 2014 season, Audi Sport replaced them with the Audi Sport TT Cup. 165 drivers had applied for participating in the 2015 edition of the series and Mikaela was among the 18 drivers selected.
  3. In the 2018 season of the TCR Scandinavia Touring Car Championship (TCR STCC), her 2nd, she became the first female driver in Swedish touring car history to win a race, when she won the 2nd race at the Karlskoga Motorstadion leg of the season. Her result was canceled later that evening after a protest from rival teams was accepted where they claimed that all cars from her team, PWR Racing, were running with non-regulation exhausts. PWR Racing appealed against the ruling and won the case a month later which meant that Mikaela’s win was reinstated.
  4. The following season, 2019, she became the first female driver to achieve a pole position in the competition, a feat that she achieved in the opening round of the season.
