Rally Sweden has been granted an extension for participation in all events in the northern Europe. The team has been suffering after being penalized for cutting the course in the Hungary events in December.
Lack of harsh winter conditions over the last couple of months have not been giving the team a competitive edge. The team trains in harsh winter conditions in the offseason so they have an advantage in the winter stages.
The current rally contract expires later this year and however Mitsubishi Auto Company reviewed and renewed the contract for the upcoming season. Additional funding gives the team a chance to place in the ranks. Event officials also confirmed to our media team that they have put into a new agreement that will extend until 2019.
