All-female Swedish rally team set up

11:46 am on 27 January 2012

An all-female Swedish team has announced plans to make a challenge in the male-dominated sport of rallying in a black-and-pink Mitsubishi Evo X.

The Ramona Racing team, made up of driver Ramona Karlsson and co-driver Miriam Walfridsson, will compete in the Production Car World Rally Championship.

The 31-year-old, who has raced in rallies for 10 years, says she's always dreamed of driving in an all-female team.

The PWRC is a companion rally series to the World Rally Championship and is limited to production-based cars.

Karlsson and Walfridsson have spent the last year securing sponsors and raising funds for the project, and their aim is to finish in the top five of the championship.
