    Have watched it basically every year and will again. Fun event with great drivers.

    Great news is that Estonian broadcaster is showing it.

    I was surprised they had originally planed to drive in the ocean, never heard of it anywhere in Norway.
    Don't know if it's normal in the Gulf of Bothnia?

    Normal winters you have roads on the ice in the Gulf of Bothnia so it is quite normal to drive a car on the ice there. The water is not particularly salty so it freezes quite easily.

    Schumacher on fire so far in teams classification

    The rally drivers should have a advantage I guess, they know how to drive on these conditions

    Predicting a Loeb victory tomorrow in individual
