    End of Day 2

    Subaru's Petter Solberg crashed out of the inaugural WRC event in Jordan in the final stage on Saturday.

    Petter, who had already had to retire on day 1, when he hit a rock in SS6 and damaged the suspension, was attacking in SS16 and running second fastest when he slid off the road heavily under braking, 5.3 kilometres into the 13.13 kilometre stage.

    "We had so much go wrong today," said Petter, who had clawed his way up from 28th overall to 16th.

    "We knew we had a brake caliper leaking, and in the last stage I braked and the car just didn't slow down enough. It's so, so frustrating and just boring, you know.

    "I want to be able to push and drive properly but we just haven't been able to this weekend."

    It was a disappointing end to the event for the Norwegian, and while it hasn't been confirmed if he will re-start on day 3, it's a real shame, as 'Hollywood' had set some good times - including posting the joint quickest time in SS1, as well as eight other top six times - and that shows what might have been.

    Chris Atkinson meanwhile ended the day in a solid fourth place in the sister Impreza WRC and unlike his team-mate he had no issues.

    "The biggest focus for us today was to get to the finish, make no mistakes and just hold position," added the Aussie. "We had no major problems and got here ok.

    "There is a big gap in front and behind of us, but we can't afford to lose too much time so we were still driving reasonably quickly, just not taking any risks by driving around rocks and things like that. I'm happy with fourth though."

    Sounds like he ain't trying. I know 4th is better than what Petter is doing, it just doesn't sound right. Maybe if he used a different word other than "happy".

    Day 3 - Congrats to Hirvonen !

    BP Ford Abu Dhabi's Mikko Hirvonen has come through to take the victory on the inaugural WRC event in Jordan.

    Mikko and his team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala both eased off in the final test on day two, in order to give them a more advantageous road position on Sunday and the tactic worked, leaving Dani Sordo to play the road sweeper.

    Initially Latvala took the lead in SS17, albeit just 0.3 seconds up on Mikko, but when Jari hit a rock in the next test and damaged his suspension he was left to limp through SS18 and SS19, and lost over 10 minutes.

    Mikko thus moved up into P1 and he was 5.4 seconds up on Sordo after Wadi Shuelb 1. The Finn then proceeded to stretch the gap further in SS19 and returned to service G, 7.7 seconds ahead, before taking more time on the repeat loop and eventually taking the victory - his first of the season - by over a minute.

    The result puts him back top in the drivers' championship, as Citroen's Sebastien Loeb failed to score drivers' points following a head-on collision with Conrad Rautenbach on day 2.

    Sordo meanwhile had to settle for the runners-up spot, and while he led throughout the opening day, he was at a disadvantage on days 2 and 3 as he had to run first in the order. He kept pushing to the very end however, and his off in the final stage, which cost him over 30 seconds, was proof of that.

    Subaru's Chris Atkinson completes the podium, having gained the position after Latvala had problems. He finished just over 5 minutes off the top two.
