Rally Sweden, second round of the 2007 FIA World Rally Championship has started tonight at 20.00 hrs.

The crews disputed the spectacular Super Special Stage in Karstad, opening stage of the race, under a light snow fall, that didn't discourage spectators that filled the arena.

This special stage has been added to the rally for the first time this year and has been created on a 1.86 km horse trotting track.

The crews run head to head on a parallel track, speed can reach 150 km/h. In the middle of the track there is a bridge with a 30 m jump.

Gigi Galli was satisfied of this first contact with rally Sweden and his Citroen Xsara didn't have problems.

Tomorrow the leg will start at 06.00 and the crews will be back at the last service park at 19.15. There will be 7 special stages.
