Passionate about motorsport from a young age, Cristina Gutiérrez has carved out a hugely successful career in the world of off-road racing. Regularly excelling in the Dakar Rally, her first taste of competition came in 2011 when she took part in the All-Terrain Spanish Rally Championships. Despite it being her first high-profile race, the Spaniard would finish top of the female category.

Cristina continued to dominate the Championships for the next five years, finishing top of her category on each occasion, while in 2015 she secured second-place overall in the mixed-gender category.
