WRC Team MINI Portugal driver Paulo Nobre is set to start Rally Sweden this weekend, second round of the 2012 World Rally Championship and one of the most exciting rallies of the whole season. Going from the +30 degrees C of his native Brazil to the deep cold of Rally Sweden, the flamboyant Brazilian is looking forward to starting this new adventure on his Swedish debut in a WRC car.

Nobre is not new to these conditions, his first outing in Rally Sweden was in 2010 in the PWRC and he returned to Scandanavia last week in a Group N when he pick local expert Patrik Sandell’s brains on how to drive on icy and snowy roads. Being aware that this is a specialists’ rally where the Scandinavian drivers have the advantage of knowing exactly what to expect, the Brazilian’s goal for the weekend is to finish Rally Sweden unperturbed and bring his MINI John Cooper Works WRC, run by Motorsport Italia, safely to the finish.

Keen on making the most of the weekend, Nobre is determined to enjoy every single stage in his MINI John Cooper Works WRC: “I’m really looking forward to Rally Sweden. Each WRC event is a new experience and a new challenge for me. It’s my first time here in a WRC car and I can’t wait to get out on the stages in my MINI. My goal is to complete all the stages with retirement like in Monte-Carlo and I promise that I will enjoy each and every one of them. I’m very happy with my team, we are all working very hard to male this a fantastic event and I will do my best to make them and Palmeirinha proud.”
