    Can you please explain all the drama about no snow at Rally Sweden? If they were so concerned about the roads why couldn’t they amend the rules to let them run on non-studded tires instead of shortening the route?

    1. Hey Brett! Thanks for the comment, and sorry for just now getting around to it. It appears the auto-notification feature isn’t working like it used to. Anyway, the way I hear it, it’s mainly because of the cost of road repairs, regardless of studs or not. When Sweden is a proper snow rally, the repair costs are very minimal for the organizers. They basically just need a fresh snow plowing of the stage to fill in the damage and it’s done. The actual roads underneath are untouched. If they used a non-studded winter tire or a soft gravel tire instead, the gravel roads underneath would still get really rutted up and require a lot to repair. At least that’s the primary reason.
