Studded tyres will be the order of the day as the championship takes on its only true winter round, with heavy ice, layering ice-covered roads, expected in the forests of Sweden. This will require the mastering of snowbanks for those who expect to be among the front-running drivers.
The opening contest of the weekend requires competitors to take on the 5.96km Torsby Reverse challenge, with midday sun likely to produce glare in the eyes of the drivers.
Following the high-speed trip through Torsby Reverse, the second test of the weekend is the 14.10km Knon. Apply brakes with caution on the bendier sections of this stage.
Sami-Joe will be aiming to continue to build on his good form to start the season, taking out the opening round at Rallye Monte-Carlo. Nexl and Isamusing are once more expected to be giving Sami-Joe his biggest challenge.
The eSports WRC Championship is open to all players of WRC 9.
