Rally - Solberg wins rally

Mr and Mrs Solberg celebrated Valentine’s Day by winning Rally Sweden Historic, which finished in Hagfors this afternoon, 10 years after Petter's dominant victory with the Subaru World Rally Team.

Petter and Pernilla ste times in their Ford Escort Mk II which were quicker than WRC R5 machinery on most of the stages.

Petter said: “I’m a rally driver again and it was fantastic. I loved it. Driving at home in Norway, in front of the big crowds was unbelievable for me yesterday and then it was the same for Pernilla when we were competing here in Sweden today. What a great event and, not a bad result either, eh…”

Pernilla added: “Petter did a very good job for the last two days. He drove really well and I think we definitely entertained some of the fans. For sure, we entertained them in Vargasen, when we came over Colin’s Crest. I could feel in the car that we weren’t lifting off – we flew so far! I’m sure we could hear the cheering inside the car!”
