The World Rally Championship (WRC) is in Sweden for the second rally of the 2019 season, and it looks like snow heaven. Of course, a number of rally spectators have posted videos from the stages on YouTube, alongside the series' official livestream from shakedown testing. This is a problem if you have real work to do today.

Of course, all the drivers are absolutely flat-0ut here, seemingly sideways everywhere and kicking up rooster tails of snow and mud while their turbos chirp away. It's a beautiful sight to behold.

Rally Sweden is one of the six races that nine-time world champ Sebastien Loeb will run this year, his first season back in regular WRC competition. It's not one of Loeb's best events, though—he's only won in Sweden once, in 2004. Citroen's Sebastien Ogier will be looking for a fourth win in Sweden, fresh off his narrow victory last month in Monte Carlo. Last year's winner, Hyundai driver Thierry Neuville, should be fast too, as well as Toyota's Jari-Matti Latvala, who's won Rally Sweden four times.

It should be a good one.
