2004 World Rally Championship

2004 WRC - Sweden - Round 2

The 2004 World Rally Championship season was the 32nd season of the FIA World Rally Championship. The season consisted of 16 rallies. The drivers' world championship was won by Sébastien Loeb in a Citroën Xsara WRC, ahead of Petter Solberg and Markko Märtin. The manufacturers' title was won by Citroën, ahead of Ford and Subaru.

For the first time in the entire history of the WRC and the 45 years old history of the Rally Sweden a non-Nordic driver managed to win this event! In altogether 6 starts with the 205 T16 and the 206 WRC, Peugeot took 6 wins, but this time they have to content with 2nd place. The show of the new Peugeot 307 WRC was a good one, Marcus Grönholm won 8 of the 19 stages, which is more than any other driver and manufacturer managed. But Marcus also had two big spins while pushing. And that is exactly what makes Séb Loeb’s victory even the more special.
