    It doesn't necessarily have to be close to the Norwegian border or at an large altitude. Vännas has plenty of snow and is only 200 meter above sea level.

    Also about the RS's partners (sponsors) most of the major sponsors have no connection to Värmland area. Swecon (listed first) are based in my home city,
    some 300 km east of the rally area. The other tow major partner Toyota Sverige and Skruvat are both based in Stockholm.

    Some of the other partners/suppliers are based in Värmland but far from all of them.
    If the swedes that know SS road potentials and Hotel capasity around the Østersund and Umeå areas, what area of the two would you choose?

    Will probably me more incar after next week's Rally-SM round in Vännäs.

    Curvy forest roads like most other rallies in Sweden.

    Apparently Jämtland's motor club is trying to get the rally next year to Östersund. They claim to have 950 km roads suitable for stages within a 60 km radius. They have three options for a route.

    I don’t think many people have doubted the ability to hold the rally there from a roads point of view.

    It’s just a question of who will pay for it....

    And also, the question if Värmland has the rights for the two following years or if Sweden's ASN can change who organizes their WRC event already for next year.

    (the article doesn't talk about this, only my own thought)

    I think Swedish ASN isn´t that strong. Like in Finland to me AKK looks more integrated in Rally Finland, than Swedish Bilsportförbundet is to RS.

    So in the end it comes up to Organizer in Värmland to adapt or not be sure of having the rally any longer.
