MORNING CHAPS,

THIS IS THE FOURTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR,WE ARE ABOUT TO TAKE THE ADVENTURE ONCE MORE....15TH-18TH FEBRUARY

THE FOLLOWING FOUR DAYS,WE SHALL BE AT THE MERCY OF MOTHER NATURE...

IT TAKES A HUGE AMOUNT OF PLANNING,AND A LITTLE LUCK,EVERYTIME WE GO....


http://rallysweden.com/en/the-race/



IT IS LITTLE KNOWN,THAT THE FORTHCOMING 'RALLY SWEDEN' RUNS THE 'HISTORIC EVENT' BEHIND THE MAIN 'WRC' ONE....

IN FACT,THE 'HISTORIC' ENTRY LIST ALMOST OUTWEIGHS,THE 'WRC' ENTRY !!! IT HAS A HUGE FOLLOWING.....7 SAABS ENTERED NO LESS !! AND SOME FAMILIAR NAMES OF OLD.....

'RALLY SVERIGE' IS A THE BIGGEST FESTIVAL ON THE SWEDISH CALENDAR,THE NATIVES REALLY DO MAKE THE MOST OF THE WINTER CONDITIONS....

http://rallysweden.com/en/the-race/entries-historic/

PLENTY OF PHOTOS,TO COME....

HERE IS A LINK,TO FORMER YEARS,SOME OF THE PHOTOS HAVE BEEN LOST OVER TIME,BUT IT GIVE'S YOU SOME IDEA... :oops:

http://www.saabrally.com/forums/viewtop ... f=1&t=4020



HOPEFULLY

BIRDIE

Looking forward to hearing about your adventures - this is definitely one I must get to sometime. Used to go up to the Hagfors and Torsby area practicing many years ago but never at Swedish Rally time.

Excellent pics and proper snow, rallying at it's best!

Any info on the Sonett, I'm struggling to find any details on the official rally website?

I must try and get to see this event next time.
