    Well at least Sweden had two car manufacturers and both were prominent in rallying, something that Finland has never had.

    Which shows what really matters. Money. And people willing to invest i good drivers. Swedish carmanufacturers put money maybe 40-50 years ago. Only one still remains. As chinese company.

    Tidemand is missing the pace mentioned in my opinion. Feels like he has hit the roof and he is not exactly young anymore.

    There isn't much in the way of talent that's coming either and after Bergkvist who doesn't seem to be able to progress either, the Swedish rally hopes are pretty much gone.

    Oliver Solberg? Swedish citizen? Yes? Our only future. (But PT has the speed and what it takes, but as said too many other have as well)

    Are you really sure about that, when Oliver did his first rally with Petter, Oliver had a Swedish flag on the car and Petter a Norwigan flag.....

    Has Johan Kristoffersen ever driven a rally? Could he be fast on a rally like Ekstrom was with the Skoda? Contender for a VW R5 drive when it is homologated?
