Today marks the day of the beginning of the Sweden Rally. This will be an incredible rally to keep an eye on if you can!
They’ve created an atmosphere like none other, with the spectators lighting campfires to keep warm and at the same time crossing frozen lakes to get to the stage.
New for their 2012 rally is they’ll be spending all of Friday on stages in Norway. Expect to see similar wintery conditions such as last year’s in Sweden. It takes a special kind of rally driver to fight through these conditions compared to others.
With Volkswagen being the Official Car this year and the biggest partner we can be certain to see a large VW presence before, during and after the rally with plenty of events planned for partners and all customers!
