Provisional entries for the 2018 Swedish Rally, round 2 of the FIA World Rally Championship, are over 50% higher than last year.
As has become traditional, entries closed (last night) after the Norwegian Henning Solberg presented his entry!
Last year only 41 cars started, this year the list stands at 67.
There are 15 World Rally Car entries, 12 for the registered WRC teams, in addition to cars for Yazeed Al Rajhi, Lorenzo Bertelli and Solberg.

A major source of extra entries are up to 14 cars to be entered in the Junior World Rally Championship, strongly boosting an otherwise very poorly supported WRC3 category, in which only two other cars have entered.
There are also four locally assembled Mitsubishi Mirage cars running under the FIA National non-championship points scoring category, which admit regionally eligible cars.
This year a much increased availability of R5 cars in their country for private Swedish drivers has made an entry in their country’s major event more attractive.
