Weather too good so WRC Sweden stages cut

The season's only pure winter event, with cars using special studded tyres on frozen roads covered with snow and ice, will start on Friday and end on Sunday.

However, rain and daytime temperatures of around four degrees Celsius in the region around Hagfors had triggered fears that the studded tyres would damage the soft surface and make conditions too dangerous.

Organisers submitted a revised route on Monday, cancelling Thursday's opening super-special stage among others. Colder weather is forecast for later in the week.
