Yvan Muller has announced his support of charity Mira Europe, which trains guide dogs for blind children.

“The idea arose last year while I was taking part in the Rally of France, when I met Francis Mattern, Mira Europe’s regional delegate for Alsace,” said Muller.

“He made me think about how privileged we are to benefit from eyesight and how easy it is to do something to help those who do not have this gift.

“This is why I have decided to support Mira Europe in its mission,”

Three-time WTCC champion Muller was joined at the Strasbourg press conference to announce the news by 13-year old Caroline Jacquart and her new companion, guide dog Flash.
