    Ogier wants the loose snow to be ploughed away. He also thinks it will be a bit slower with the snow banks but not a slow rally.

    Use the snowmobile tracks om the sides of the road!

    And people that stands in wrong places going to be removed, by police if necessary, even media!

    Stages going to be cancelled if police is needed in to a stage.

    30 minutes before 000 car, or 30 minutes before first WRC car?

    I think it's 30 min before first car, because 000 car time is usually not announced and the 30 minutes is reserved for faster safety cars like 000.

    The various stages are mentioned on the website. Be sure to be there one hour upfront as you might be walking a bit sometimes to get to the actual stage or need time parking. Hagfors is a good one at the skislope to get soe of the action. Closeby and a jump but no high speed. Vargĺsen, do Colins crest as it is a must have. Torsby as it offers the service park and a closeby stage. I am not the biggest fan of the SSS as its more a showthing and few things happen but thats a personal taste i would say. Further on, check the maps for some things and take your time. Most people do not drive around from stage to stage but tend to get to the stage early morning and stay over the historics till the second pass. But you can do a few different stages if you would want to every day. Distances can be significant so plan carefully. And bring a coat! ;-) Have fun!

    Please see the yellow road I've highlighted on the attached map, which in theory gets you into spectator point 4 (if I am correct) on Svullrya.

    Does anyone with local knowledge or experience of spectating on rally sweden think this area will be accessible in a front wheel drive car?

    If I remember correctly form last years visit, there is a gate at the beginning of this road which was not locked but we got stuck with our VW Passat after some 500m. There is one steep hill you need to cross, no way with 2WD.

    Good day of Recce today. Stages are looking amazing and can’t wait to tackle them at speed! Some small pacenote changes needed to allow for the narrower parts (bigger snow banks) but everything going well. #paddonspack

    Thanks for info, very helpful.

    Did you walk from there or go to the stage end and walk in?
