Finland again turns out to be a really good time, but all things must end and so does week 49. @NME1 managed to eke out an early lead for himself and presented some good times only to be overtaken in the last minutes by @doomy just barely edging him out and off the top spot. Congratulations to @doomy again and well done to both of you, very good show.

Sweden has long stood as an out of reach challenge that just seems impossible to grasp so this week we’ll have another go at it.
Elgsjön (Not to be confused with Älgsjön) is a bit longer than the last Swedish stage we tried, but it has some wider stretches and also a couple of really decent straights where you can unleash your power. Just make sure you’re able to keep it steady for the turns beyond. As with every other Swedish stage however the main hazard is not so much the lack of grip but the snow banks on the side which will grab you and throw you into a roll if you’re going too fast.
The 2010 cars proved very pleasant and fun to drive, so we’re banning them this week. Feel free to pick anything else you fancy, though I would recommend going for something with 4WD, for example:
Group B - A lot of power and low weights makes for very fast cars, but can you control them well enough to use that advantage?
Group A - Weaker but more clever cars, slower but steadier and with more gears to make the power output more even.
2000 - Still very good cars, almost as comfortable as the 2010s, can the other groups stand up to them?
Every other group is open, so if you do prefer front or rear wheel drive then go right ahead.
The Swedish Rally runs in January, so we’re starting early before all the pros get here. Week 50 of the Chrono Rally is now open.
Show us what you can do!
