This is information that arouses amazement, in the middle of a day of competition, and the arrival of a world-class rally. Nathalie Maillet was found dead. The first information suggests a feminicide, but this is not confirmed. The facts took place at his home in Gouvy. The president of the circuit Melchior Wathelet refuses at this stage to give the slightest precision on these events.
Before arriving at the head of the “most beautiful circuit in the world”, she had managed an architectural firm. Daughter of a pilot, passionate about racing cars, she was very early in the world of motor racing. She took office just five years ago. She had simultaneously bet on the past prestige of the Ardennes ring, centenary, and on cutting-edge technologies to digitize or even virtualize the show. In addition to the family tragedy, it is a heavy loss for this economic tool of primary importance.
