Rally Sweden: Rally route

The format is a familiar one, with the rally based in Karlstad, a single service park at Hagfors Airport and stages in the Varmland and Dalarna regions. Seven of the 11 stages (each is used twice) are identical to last year, with only two new venues. Friday's Lovhaugen test is unique in that it starts in Sweden, before crossing into Norway and returning to finish in Sweden. Sunday's Gustavsfors stage is also new for 2011. It has not been used since the 1980s and forms the season's first Power Stage -- broadcast live on TV and offering bonus points to the fastest drivers. The rally begins with a super special stage at Karlstad's trotting track on Thursday evening. Friday's opening leg is the longest and journeys to the rally's most northerly point in western Varmland, before the second day ventures east of Hagfors. The final leg is the shortest, staying close to Hagfors before returning to Karlstad for the finish. Drivers tackle 22 tests covering 351.00km in a route of 2059.89km. <pre> RALLY SWEDEN ROUND 1 FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP 10 - 13 February 2011
