Drivers and cars face extremely cold temperatures well below freezing point. The surface of the special stages usually features snow and ice.
Drivers have to challenge high speed sections with very low grip for the pleasure of all enthusiastic rally fans. A real show to live once in a lifetime. The particular atmosphere created by landscapes, temperatures, rally cars, and spectators make Sweden a truly special rally.
The surface conditions of the Rally Sweden usually consist of ice and snow. Selecting the right tires therefore is not an issue at all - there is only one type available for the teams: studded winter tires.
Rally Sweden was first held in 1950 and was called "Rally to the Midnight Sun" - with start and Finish at separate locations.
