In addition to the results, maybe this map of the 1952 Travemünde Rallye is of interest - it belonged to Adolf Brudes (2., together with his friend Edgar Kittner)

I have never been interested in the rally sport, but I have copied what I have found about Midnattsolsrallyt, because there were so many racing drivers that participated.
I have results from '50 and '52, but only for the separate classes. And for 1950 only the placings in the classes. I think the whole rally was decided with a brake-test at Kiruna.
Could it be of any interest?

Thank you Tomas. The classification in classes is published in the book "Full fahrt over Sverige", but no points are mentioned there.
According to that book co-driver to PF Cederbaum in 1950 was Bertil Sohlberg and you wrote Jacob Douglas. Anybody can help to explain who is right about that?
Looking at the points scores in 1952 we can guess that Hanstein, Stalheim, Hemmingsson and Hertz were classified in 3rd to 6th positions. Anybody can inform us more precisely on it?
Same about Sandström, Bärgman and Bengtsson. They probably were 6th, 9th and 11th, but who was on which of these positions? Who knows?

You are right! It should be Bertil Sohlberg in 1950. Douglas was co-driver in 1952. Sorry to confuse you.

In the book "Full fart genom Sverige" you can find class results only. In 1953 there is mentioned a class IVB (seriessportvagnar under 1300cc) with only two finishers: J.Dahlström (MG) and... the second is unknown, marked with "?" The book does not mention about final points but I found a list of all finishers (with points) in the net. That was a scan of a swedish newspaper. It didn't mention about the class IVB results. Maybe it wasn't scanned. Does anybody know who was the second classified in IVB and what were the final point scores of Dahlström and that mysterious "?". On the scan there was a black drop instead of point score of C.Berglöf (12th in class I - över 2000cc). Anybody knows how many points scored certain Berglöf?

This is your lucky day! There were more then two finishers:

Midnattsolsrallyt 1953 class IVB

1. Jonnie Dahlström/ T.Westrin MG 21
2. Ivar Andersson/ H. Ohlström MG 22
3. Joakim Bonnier/ KG Kanrell Porsche 26
4. Rune Sköld/ B.Holm MG 38
5. Prins Friedrich Karl von Preussen/ G. von Heuduck D Porsche 56
6. Å. Sjunneson/ S. Claesbom Porsche 59

There were some problems before these results was official, because Bonnier protested against the MGs. They were examined and found to be legal.

Class 1

12. Carl Berglöf/ Herbert Gustavsson Citroen 31

It was my lucky day, indeed. Thank you Tomas a lot! It looks like you can't be sure even if you got information from a Swedish Rally bible.
By the way what is the proper name of the rally: Midnattssolensrallyt or Midnattsolsrallyt?

In 1950 it was: SVENSKA RALLYT TILL MIDNATTSSOLEN

In '51 I have seen: KAK:s Midnattssolsrally

And from '52 it seems to have been called just MIDNATTSSOLSRALLYT.
But I think that the numberplates still had: SVENSKA RALLYT TILL MIDNATTSSOLEN printed on them, so I am not sure of the official name. But anyway, it was called Midnattssolsrallyt.

I seem to have omitted one "s" in all my earlier posts... I hope my old Swedish grammar teacher isn't a TNF member. :blush:

The 53 rally started with what was called a "startrip", where the drivers drove from different places to the "real" start. I only know that one of the pre-starts was at Gothenburg.
The real start was at Rättvik in Dalarna, from where the drivers drove north up to Jokkmokk and then returned south to the finish at Saltsjöbaden outside of Stockholm (the route changed a lot over the years).
142 cars started from Rättvik June 13th and 118 reached the finish at June 16th.

Do you know start and finish cities and dates of start and finish of the Midnattssol 1952? ...and number of starters/finishers?


The '52 rally started from Stockholm and finished at Rättvik. But before that the drivers had started from some different cities in Sweden to meet up in Stockholm. 172 started and 137 reached the finish (one source says 141...). I have no note on the dates for '52, apart from June, sorry.

Thank you Carles and Tomas. I have two more questions concerning Midnattssol Rally. In the book "Full fahrt genom Sverige" authors of the book didn't mention name of driver classified 11th in class V (högst 750cc) /1955/ there is only:
11) S ?/S Jansson, Lloyd
Th same situation is in 1958 class Standard 1.001-1300cc:
8) ? / Fred Bolin, Alfa Romeo Giulietta TI
Who can help to fill the missing names?

It is a question rather to Czech and Slovak forummers. In 1948 there was held 14th Rally of Poland (official name you can translate as The International Rally of Polish Automobile Club - Grand Prix of Poland). There is nearly nothing about that event in polish sources, I mean no results, just class winners. There were 7 classes, 5 of them were won by Czechoslovak drivers. I guess in Czechoslovak sources should be something more about as the rally was a big success for Czechoslovak crews. Anybody can help me and provide with results of that rally?

Thank you Carles for trying. In fact asking the question it is allways better to give a date of the rally you are asking about and some more details... So:
The 14th International Rally of Polish Automobile Club - Grand Prix of Poland was held from June 26th to July 4th 1948. There were 80 starters and 58 finishers. All what I know are class results without point scores.
class I (-750)
1 Ivan Hodac CS Aero-Minor
2 Jaroslav Vlcek CS Aero-Minor
3 Viktor Mraz CS Aero-Minor
class II (-1200)
1 Vaclav Bobek CS Skoda
2 Jaroslav Netusil CS Skoda
3 Josef Cemper CS Skoda
class III (-1500)
1 W.Perkowski PL Lancia Aprillia
2 Stefan £¹czkowski PL Opel
3 Julian £¹czyñski PL Lancia
class IV (-2000)
1 Frantisek Dobry CS Bristol
2 Zbigniew Borowczyk BMW
3 Kustosz PL Willys
class V (-3000)
1 Jiri Pohl CS Jaguar
2 Jaroslav Hausmann CS Tatra
3 Wasilewski PL Willys
class VI (3000+)
1 Józef Sucharda PL Jaguar
You can see that competition was dominated by Czechoslovaks, so it is why I hope the Czechoslovak sources should contain more information, more results and more details.

I have two more questions concerning Midnattssol Rally. In the book "Full fahrt genom Sverige" authors of the book didn't mention name of driver classified 11th in class V (högst 750cc) /1955/ there is only: 11) S ?/S Jansson, Lloyd


Sorry, but in the lists that I have there is only ten results from that class.

Th same situation is in 1958 class Standard 1.001-1300cc: 8) ? / Fred Bolin, Alfa Romeo Giulietta TI


The author of the book has probably the same source as me, because the printer has messed up the result list and there are some lines missing in the magazine "Racing" from '58. So I can't help you.
