BFGoodrich Cars Win Swedish Rally

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) Finland’s Marcus Gronholm dominated the 2006 Swedish Rally by winning the first five of the day’s seven special stages. His nearest rival, four-time world champion Sebastien Loeb, won the remaining two to reduce Gronholm’s lead to 25.1 sec.


Gronholm, who drives for Ford, said after Loeb won stage six: “That was about as fast as I could go – the tyres were finished at the end – but I am enjoying this fight.”


Loeb won the event’s longest stage, by shaving 2.3 sec off Gronholm’s lead. “I had the tyre choice right and I knew what Marcus was on,” Loeb said after Vargasen 2.

The top two positions were taken by the BFGoodrich-quipped Ford of Marcus Gronholm and Citroen of Sebastien Loeb. Local driver Daniel Carlsson took third, while fourth position was taken by the Pirelli equipped Mitsubishi of Gianluigi Galli.
