Rally Sweden essentials and timetable – the fastest rally ever?

Day one of Rally Sweden is here.

Craig Breen is prepared for what he believes will be the fastest rally on record

“It’s very fast, very straight, not so many crests or jumps, but where it’s narrow it’s really narrow and also bumpy. But for sure it’s going to be the fastest average speed ever,” he said.
