Dusty is out on the road, and has lended the responsibility of this Fantasy WRC preview to the local
expert village idiot.
After the regular Ogier-winning start of the season in Monte Carlo, Tell a Finn and Hermann took the early lead in our championship while others felt the wraith of Monte with several of their favourites crashing out. Let’s move on to more familiar surroundings in Sweden and Norway please.
Since last years rally were threatened by thawing roads and little to no snow, the organizers have moved the rally further north and higher up in the terrain. Reports say that there is a good ice cover on the roads, and snow has started to fall on the stages. There is still time for more of that to come, and the rally should go on as planned as cold temperatures are expected. The service park is set in the rural town of Torsby, current home of Petter Solberg and the place to stock up on essentials before watching motor racing.
