Action from the 2nd round of the 1986 World Rally Championship took place in the snow covered forests of Sweden. Henri Toivonen, still fired up from his win in the opening round at Monte Carlo was confident he could maintain his early lead in the very fast Lancia Martini. Stiff competition was expected from Ford who used this Swedish round to debut the new RS200 and with Juha Kankkunen in his Peugeot ready to show a clean pair of heels - this is rallying at its slipping, sliding best. Strong challenges from Eriksson’s Golf GTi Audi, Mazda, Rover and Citroen were expected. Would Toivonen triumph, or was there a surprise in store?
