There will be a global TV-production from Rally Sweden 9-12 February. The decision was made public some minutes ago at a press conference in Karlstad.
We are doing this for all our fans, to save the championship and its organisers and teams and not least for our own sake and our sponsors, the CEO Glenn Olsson says.
Rally Sweden will be the first rally for twenty years where the TV rights have been handled by the rally itself. Svenska Rallyt AB has been fighting against the clock to finanze the production.
– This is a multimillion project and as we are not ready with the economics this is very hazardous for us, Glenn Olsson said.
