    Well it doesn´t look good. However they probably captured the most bad place on the stage. It´s easy to see sun has melted everything at the place. Yes. It will be muddy.

    But. Do we remember Sardinia Power Stage? Looser than that I promise, it´s not.

    In Sardinia you are not going with studded tyres...

    Ice-gravel-ice and losing studs is just something the driver's have to manage. Its not the first time in Sweden these situations have happened.

    First sane comment I've read in the "Rally Sweden 2020"-forum in a long time. Rally is, to a huge part, about adapting to conditions.
    Adapting to icy patches in Monte,
    adapting to heavy rain in France,
    adapting to to icy slushy Welsh roads in Rally GB,
    adapting to HUGE rocks in the road vs sand in Turkey...

    but no, we never hear as much whining/negativity/complaints from everyone as when Sweden is coming up... either too much snow or too little, too little ice etc.
    This year is a freak of nature, an oddity and will most likely not be happening again in at least 20 more years if we look at weather statistics.

    So please folks, 24 hours until rally start... lets focus on the driving, the powerful cars, Ogier's last season, "comeback" of Breen and Latvala, the speed and action in the forest, the junior WRC premiere, the fight of the R5s and the lovely thrill that is WRC!

    EDIT: Also, Skalla is only allowed for P1 and P2 drivers. So this is the only shakedown for other drivers.

    EDIT2: Two cars at the same time would result in broken lights and windscreens due to rocks flying
    We’re is this info concerning Shakedown for others than P1&P2?

    Actually the bulletin says Priority 1 only. One article said ”WRC and WRC2”.

    Yes, but crews should have enough sources to adapt. As there are allowed ONLY studded tyres in Sweden, it is so dangerous to drive on them on normal gravel, especially if it will not be frozen. On Monte you have proper tyres (or at least you can choose what suits you better), here you have no option...

    It means that Priority 1 has to do ONLY 1 run since normally 3 runs is mandatory.

    Nothing about cancelling rest..
