The Rally Sweden is the only truly winter rally on the WRC calendar. It sees drivers heading into the wintery forests of Sweden and neighbouring Norway, where they take on frozen tracks lined with the iconic feature of this rally – snow banks.

Drivers are leaning their cars into these banks to retain speed in corners, but if temperatures are too high, the banks can collapse. Everyone runs on studded tyres, which brings fresh challenges as drivers must break differently and deal with the sensation of floating. And with drivers and crews having to cope with temperatures as low as -25°C, the Rally Sweden is one of the most daunting dates of the season.
