Highlights from the 2012 WRC Rally Sweden

Never thought I'd say this but I'm getting snow withdrawals this Winter. No snow in the Northeast except for a freak storm on October 27 last year and then a couple of inches in January. I really miss driving on snow. That's probably why the 2012 Rally Sweden highlights look better than ever! Check out the insane jumps starting  ~ 2:41.

One oddity about Rally Sweden is that it has been won by a non-Scandinavian only once in its 62-year existence. That was accomplished in 2004 by Sebastien Loeb who I consider to be the best driver in any series today. This year's rally was won by Finnish driver Latvala in a Ford-Michelin. It pays off to learn driving on snowy roads from a young age, especially when the roads stay like that for 6 months every year!
