R2 Rally Sweden February 11-14
Last year’s winner: Sebastien Ogier Based: Karlstad The season’s only all-snow rally – providing the sub-zero temperatures play ball. When the weather’s right, standing stageside to see cars cornering at more than 100mph on a surface we could barely stand up on is a sight to behold. When it’s raining, it’s rubbish. And a stud-saving farce. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain. As usual, the crews will cross the border to Norway for the opening.
