Rally Sweden started off the 2010 World Rally Championship racing season the end of last week. After the Shakedown and first Super Special Stage (SS1) on Thursday, the three main days of actual racing got started on Friday, February 12th.
If you're like me, and don't have the HD only channel (Discovery Channel's HD Theater network) that provides coverage of WRC, you can watch it live online at WRC.com. After it was dropped from the Speed Channel, and only made it back to telly in 2009 after a few years absence, I suppose we should feel lucky that it's on at all.
Anyway, I thought I'd post some of the videos of the rally for anyone whose interested and hasn't seen any of Rally Sweden yet. If you've never checked out the WRC before, even these few short clips should show you why fans feel it's vastly superior to oval track racing, such as NASCAR. Even if nobody crashes, it's really interesting to watch these drivers and their navegators push it to the limit, through the different stages. It's got to be both scary and fun zooming across the ice and snow covered gravel paths.
