Will national rally miles give some the edge in Sweden?

Ott Tänak, Esapekka Lappi and Takamoto Katsuta all got extra seat-time last weekend


If there was one buzzword around the World Rally Championship right now, it’s testing.

A reduction in the number of days for all Rally1 drivers has led to comments and discussion in the media, and all three teams sending at least one driver to national events last weekend as extra preparation for this week’s Rally Sweden.

But who got the most out of their extra running at the weekend, and how much of a disadvantage will the others be at having done just a single day’s pre-event test?

That’s a key point of discussion on this week’s SPIN, The Rally Pod as Lisa O’Sullivan chairs the Rally Sweden preview with analysis from Colin Clark, George Donaldson and Luke Barry.

And make sure you stick around to the very end to hear Donaldson’s rather bold prediction for the event!
