Rally Route

As in 2007, the rally is based in Hamar, 125km north-east of Oslo.  It hosts the main service park at the spectacular 9,000 capacity indoor Viking Ship stadium, built to host speed skating events during the 1994 Winter Olympics.  The route is based in the same region as the previous edition, but more than 44 percent of the 360.90km of competition is new. 

The action begins with an all-new super special stage at a trotting track in Oslo on Thursday evening.  The first full day in the forests of Kongsvinger, south-east of Hamar, uses opening leg tests from 2007, but most are in the opposite direction.  The only opportunity for service during the day will be a 15-minute remote service zone in Kongsvinger.  The second leg is centred to the north in the mountain region of Lillehammer, host city of the Olympics, but also includes a short test in Hamar itself. 

 The final day is the longest and more than half is new, including the final stage at Hedmark mountain plateau which runs through a corridor of three-metre high snow walls.  Drivers tackle 23 tests in a route of 1230.15km.
