Stage description Stage description

The Västervik stage is a hybrid of last year's Sävar stage and the Västervik stage. The first part of the stage follows the old coastal road, previously used as the Sävar stage in the 2023 Rally Sweden but in the opposite direction. The stage features excellent rally roads with numerous rhythmic curve combinations.
The second part of the stage largely replicates the Västervik stage from 2023, with a new finishing point.
