When Saab Rally cars were driven by a woman
In 1950 Saab cars went rallying and their cars were driven by Rolf Mellde/K G Svedberg and Greta Molander/Margaretha von Essen who took part in the famous Monte Carlo Rallye in January. The two cars had chassis numbers 7 and 8 respectively.
Greta Molander came in 55th overall, 5th in her class and 2nd in the Ladies Class. In the Rikspokalen in November, at that time Europe’s most gruelling event, Saab is the overall winner with Rolf Mellde, and is the best marque team with Mellde, Svedberg and Greta Molander, who also wins the Ladies Class.
