WRC is of course an international event, and in Sweden we can expect participants from 21 different countries. Every nation’s flag blow in the wind at each side of a bridge over Klarälven in central Karlstad.
The World Rally Championship series is of global interest. The 13 rounds of the championship are well spread over the world and are followed by enthusiasts all over the world.
Rally Sweden is the only rally in the championship run on ice and snow. It´s exotic and many drivers are longing for this winter rally. Just take a look at the three drivers from the United Arab Emirates.
In Karlstad the community is always glad to welcome all foreign guests by showing the national flag of all participating drivers.
– Even this year we succeeded in finding all the flags and we had all but one on stock, Sören Andersson on Karlstad Community tells us. But Peru´s flag we had to order.
The nations represented in the 2011 rally are
