WRC Sweden Rally 2017
February 9-12, 2017 -- Rally Sweden begins with the traditional night super special at Karlstad trotting track, which is repeated 48 hours later. It is the only true winter round, characterised by frozen roads lined with snow banks deep into the remote forests of Sweden and Norway. Drivers “lean” cars against the banks to guide them round corners, but in warmer temperatures the banks disintegrate on impact and cars can get stuck in the snow. This year the service park and effective rally base switches to Torsby, a more northerly location aimed at ensuring full winter conditions.
