Speedy stamps

Norway’s first World Rally Champion celebrity is now the subject of his very own stamp, produced by Norway Post to commemorate the inaugural Rally Norway, according to a post on the website.

The stamp, derived from an original painting by Jorn Jontvedt, depicts Petter Solberg and co-driver Phil Mills at full flight in their Subaru Impreza WRC. The stamp has undergone a special printing process which has embossed chrome on some parts.

Two other Norwegian rally favourites – Petter’s brother Henning and Thomas Schie – are also featured on stamps in the collection.
