Rally - Snow tyres

Thanks to Michelin’s ‘Sweden Spikes’ and according to the Volkswagen team, the grip generated by the World Rally Cars is greater on the ice and snow of Rally Sweden than it is on a typical gravel rally. 

Last year the three Polo R WRCs took an average 124.87 metres to accelerate from nought to 100 km/h at the start of each stage at the Rally Argentina. In contrast, it took an average of just 107.32 metres to hit the same speed on the early tests on the first full day of rallying. Just thought you’d be interested, hmmm?
