Never Mind the Snow, Smell The Wood Smoke - Rally Sweden 2018

This weekend the kind folk at Toyota invited me along to Rally Sweden as a guest of Toyota Gazoo Racing. I talk about the experience quite a lot on this week's News Show (Episode 163), so here's a small selection of the videos and photos I took when I was there.

Atmosphere

Some of the action from Rally Sweden 2018

A rally, as a spectator, is all about the atmosphere. Whether that's a small local one, or standing in a Swedish forest then it's all about the noise, the smalls and the visuals. I can't bring you the smell of woodsmoke, strong alcohol and cooking sausage but here's some of the noise and some of the sort of views you get of small cars being thrown through snow at motorway speeds.


Pits

15 minute tour of the Rally Sweden 2018 Service Area

The teams are very protective of their pit areas, but the service area at Torsby airport was about a quarter of a mile long. Naturally, I made like an influencer and did a livestream tour.

It wouldn't really be motorsport for me without taking photos. I wish I'd taken my longer lens, but I had a lot of fun taking these!
