Pirelli Introduces New Sottozero Ice 1 Tyre For Sweden

Pirelli Introduces New Sottozero Ice 1 Tyre For Sweden


Sweden is one of the most specialised events on the world rally calendar, calling for the ultimate in grip and traction over surfaces that are often too slippery to stand up on. On this year’s event, Pirelli introduces a new tyre: the Sottozero Ice 1.

Compared to the previous Sottozero Ice, the Sottozero Ice 1 benefits from a new design on the external part of the tread, which makes the blocks even stronger and helps to retain all the studs: 384 in total, featuring unique tungsten tips. The total number of studs is the same as last year, as is the seven-millimetre protrusion. So effective are these studs at penetrating through the surface layer of snow and biting into the compacted ice below, that the traction on offer to the drivers is actually superior to most gravel rallies.

Winter Sport, Rally Style - Volkswagen Full Of Ambition Ahead Of Unique WRC Round In Sweden


Unbeaten on this turf, and lining up with three duos hungry for victory – Volkswagen goes into the Rally Sweden (11–14 February 2016) brimming with confidence. Three-time world champions Sébastien Ogier/Julien Ingrassia (F/F), who have two Rally Sweden victories to their name, once again start as World Championship leaders. Their toughest opposition looks likely to come from their own team-mates: Andreas Mikkelsen/Anders Jæger (N/N) and Jari-Matti Latvala/Miikka Anttila (FIN/FIN). All three pairs were in contention last year, with Ogier and Ingrassia ultimately clinching victory in the closing metres in a dramatic finale. The Rally Sweden is of particular significance to Volkswagen. The maiden victory for the Polo R WRC in 2013 heralded an unprecedented success story, which continues today with 35 wins from 40 rallies. Since this rally, the top spot in the Drivers’ and Co-Drivers’ Championship has always been occupied by a Volkswagen duo.

Warm Temperatures Affect Opening Winter Round Of The FIA European Rally Championship


Rally Liepāja, the opening round of the 2016 FIA European Rally Championship, will not take place as scheduled because of uncharacteristically warm weather conditions.

The final decision to put off the event, which was due to take place on 5-7 February, was taken by the rally organiser on Friday following the latest in a number of recent inspections of the stages in Latvia.

The inspection found that rain and ambient temperatures above freezing over recent weeks have damaged the surface of the stages, causing concerns for competitor and spectator safety on the event. The rally also takes place on public roads that are in daily use and vital to the local infrastructure. Potential damage to these roads would cause disruption for an extended period of time.

The perfect start to the season for Sebastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia


As they did the last two years, Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia have got their WRC season off to a winning start by dominating the Monte6Carlo Rally.

The championship’s first event, a historic and selective one, comprised sixteen stages, with a mix of asphalt, ice and snow between Gap and Monaco. Initially battling it out with Kris Meeke and then moving into a strong lead after the Northern Irishman retired, the triple and current world champion won half the speed tests and also the Power Stage with its three bonus points.

So Sébastien Ogier finishes the first of the season’s fourteen rallies with maximum points. Having already won the Monte6Carlo in 2009 when it was on the IRC calendar, the VW driver remains unbeaten here in the WRC since 2014.
