Rally Norway is the Norwegian rally which has been part of the WRC calendar in 2007 and 2009. This rally and Rally Sweden are the only two rallies part of the WRC calendar which are mainly held on snow, with the Monte Carlo Rally also featuring snow on some years. Like the Swedish rally, its stages take place in forest tracks, although tracks in the Norwegian rally are much narrower.
The rally springs from Rally Finnskog Norway with base in Kongsvinger, but the center of the event will, due to better accommodation and hospitality services, be in Hamar. The Vikingskipet ("The Viking Ship") is used as an indoor service area.
The rally was won by Henning Solberg. Throughout the first leg Daniel Carlsson was right behind Solberg, but went off the road at SS12 and had to retire the rally. The young talents Mads Østberg and Anders Grøndal took the second and third place on the podium.
The candidate race was by FIA given the grade "B", which outstands several current WRC-rallies.
