    The Red Barn Arena

    The epicentre of Rally Sweden. This is where it all happens, and where the day ends. A nice walk or a short trip on the free bus from Umeå city centre. This is the WRC’s hottest arena, in what’s known as the I20 zone. Spectacular jumps and top-speed straights, Food Courts, VIP areas and live artists. This is the place to get the full Rally Sweden experience, with a festive party atmosphere for all the family. And after the day’s races, on Thursday to Saturday it’s time for After Rally in the party tent.
