WRC Rally Sweden 2016

11th February 2016 - 14th February 2016


  • The only true winter round and a classic Rally Sweden will be characterised by frozen roads lined with snow banks.

  • Drivers ‘lean’ cars against the banks to guide them round corners. But in warmer temperatures the banks disintegrate on impact and cars become stuck in the snow.     

  • Studded tyres are essential and provide remarkable grip but drivers must acclimatise to the ‘floating’ feeling and different braking points.

  • When temperatures hover around freezing, the studs tear up the road surface and exposed gravel rips them from the tyres to leave little traction.

  • Outdoor servicing in temperatures as low as -25°C makes normally routine jobs slower and tricky for gloved mechanics.
