Itinerary[edit]

The itinerary for the 2013 rally sees a mixture of the same stages from 2012. The first stage will be a Super Special Stage held at the rally base in Karlstad. WRC fans had the chance to vote on the Rally Sweden Facebook page as to who they wanted to see starting the rally head-to-head. The majority of fans voted for French Sébastien Loeb vs Sébastien Ogier who are bitter rivals from when Ogier was the number two driver at Citroën.[2] Other 'dream heats' include Finns Mikko Hirvonen and Jari-Matti Latvala going head-to-head as well as two young Scandinavian drivers Mads Østberg vs Pontus Tidemand.

The first full day of the rally will be made up of seven special stages to the north of the rally base, mostly taking place in the region of Hagfors. Stages four and seven take place near Torsby. The day ends with the second and final running of the Karlstad Super Special Stage.

Day two will have eight stages across the region of Hagfors. Day three starts with the longest stage of the rally which is the 27.07 km (16.82 mi) stage of Mitandersfors near the region of Torsby and crosses the border into Norway. The next four stages take place near the Norwegian town of Kirkenær while the final stage of the day goes back to Sweden, taking place in Torsby which is also the Power Stage.
