Rally of The Midnight Sun

Frolander and Lundstrom jumping their Austin Healey 100-6 in the 1956 Swedish ‘Rally to The Midnight Sun’…

The rally was first held in 1950 and is the antecedent event of ‘Rally Sweden’, since 1973 a round of the World Rally Championship, the ’56 event was won by Harry Bengttsson in a VW.

The big Healeys were effective rally tools, never European or British Championship winners mind you but an Austin Healey Sprite won the RAC British Rally Championship in 1959 in the hands of John Sprinzel and Stuart Turner.
