Patrik Sandell and his co-driver Staffan Parmander tested before the Rally Acores this monday. At least the test roads seem really nice and fast. Question is how Patrik will perform after a doubtful start of the season where he has been followed by various problems, not least punctures. The team have now switched tyre brand to Pirelli, which they hope will solve the problem and enable Patrik to go for the win. Personally, I’m not convinced it will be enough to reach all the way to a victory, but maybe he can at least get a step closer…

Petter Solberg, who has previously done both tests and a few test rallys (Svully Rally Dahbi in Norway and Finnskogsvalsen in Sweden) during the recent weeks, tested his Citroën C4WRC in Sweden once again yesterday. In a short post on his blog Petter said that driving the car was good fun and that it’s really fast. Today Petter is probably checking in for the rally and tomorrow starts the recce that will take place during Tuesday and Wednesday.
World rally champion Sebastien Loeb warmed up for Rally Sweden yesterday by testing in northern Värmland. Loeb did a full day test arranged by Citroen and former Citroën driver Thomas Rådström. At the afternoon, even Kimi Räikkönen showed up and did two rounds with Sebastien in the co-driver seat of the car. However, Kimi was there as a private person and didn’t do any tests himself.
