    Four-time Rally GB winner Petter Solberg showed his rivals a clean pair of heels on the shakedown run for this year's event, by going quickest of all as he bids to throw a spoiler into Sébastien Loeb and Mikko Hirvonen's World Rally Championship (WRC) title fight with a fifth victory on British shores.

    The four-hour shakedown was conducted on a 4.95km gravel stage in Margam Park, 40 miles from the rally's Cardiff base and in typically cold and wet conditions a world away from the dry pre-event reconnaissance run – throwing an extra challenge into the mix for competitors, with slippery and muddy roads to cope with.

    Citroën Junior Team star Solberg set his best time on his final run, and the 2003 WRC Champion afterwards professed himself in buoyant spirits, optimistic about his prospects on what will be his first loose-surface rally in the C4 WRC – and confident that he has his best opportunity to shine on the event in years.

    The head-to-head showdown for the 2009 drivers' title between Mikko Hirvonen and Sebastien Loeb was the star billing before the Rally of Great Britain, and on today's opening day the fight certainly lived up to the hype.

    Five-time World Rally Champion Loeb got his quest for a sixth crown off to a great start, ending the opening day as rally leader, but after a thrilling nip and tuck scrap for the lead only 5.3 seconds separates him from Hirvonen in second place.

    Loeb began the day the stronger driver, winning the opening three gravel stages in a classic mix of rain, mud and fog for which the rally is renowned. The Frenchman brought his Citroen C4 WRC to the midday service with a lead of 8.9 seconds over Hirvonen in second.

    The afternoon, however, was a different story, with Hirvonen quicker on the repeat passes through Hafren (SS4) and Myherin (SS6) to keep himself firmly in winning contention.

    As he completed the day's final stage, Loeb was happy to be leading but baffled by his speed on the repeated stages. "It's been difficult this afternoon, I don't really understand why I was slower here and on the first one," he said. "On both occasions I didn't get the grip, and the car was understeering. Still, I'm happy to be first on the road tomorrow. Mikko is very fast, though, and it's a really exciting fight. The important thing is I'm in front for the moment, we'll see what we can do tomorrow."

    With no split times available from Loeb's car on the final stage, Hirvonen had no idea how quick he was until the finish control. Told that he had narrowed the gap on Loeb by another two-tenths, Hirvonen laughed. "I tried to fight back but I didn't know how close I’d be," he said. "It was so slippery in there and we had a lot of moments, but now it’s going well. It’s a great fight. I've really enjoyed myself. Okay, my driving wasn't perfect this morning but it’s been better this afternoon. Now I must keep this up tomorrow."

    Sebastien Loeb was quick to respond to Hirvonen's stage winning performance on SS7, completing the Crychan stage which followed a massive 10.2sec ahead of the Finn - his biggest single stage gain of the rally so far.

    After Saturday's opening stage in south Wales, crews journeyed 60km north to Crychan, for the first of two adjoining stages close to the town of Brecon. Weather conditions remained gloomy, however, with persistent rain and a chilly temperature of 13 degrees Celsius.

    First to arrive at the finish control, Loeb was very satisfied with his performance. "I was very fast in there," he acknowledged. "After taking it a bit easy on the first one (SS7) I was absolutely flat-out. I'm feeling good and the car is perfect."

    Hirvonen, in contrast, said nothing at the stage end and set off immediately on the short liaison section to SS9. After setting the third fastest time the gap between the Finn and Loeb had grown to 13.1sec.

    Spaniard Dani Sordo was the closest to Loeb's time, and almost as happy as his team-mate. "Difficult conditions, but the feeling in the car was good. I'm happy with that," he said.
    Petter Solberg was fourth-fastest and still driving defensively as a result of his wiper issues. "I can only keep them in the slow speed setting - any faster and they lock up," he explained. It's not easy, but apart from that everything's fine. I'm trying all I can to get some time back from Sordo. I'll try!"

    Mikko Hirvonen's chances of claiming the 2009 WRC drivers' title took a knock on this morning's stages in the Rally of Great Britain.

    The Finn had reduced Sebastian Loeb's lead by 2.4s on Saturday's opening stage but when competitors moved into Crychan forest, SS8, Hirvonen dropped more than 10 seconds on Loeb's Citroen.

    At the end of the stage Hirvonen said: “It's a driveshaft problem, but we don't know what type.”

    Yesterday, his BP Ford Abu Dhabi WRT team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala was slowed dramatically by a broken driveshaft and currently lies down in eighth place, over 7 minutes off the battle for P1.

    After dropping another 10 seconds on the next test - Halfway, SS9, Hirvonen was less specific about the problems he was facing.

    Shaking his head in disgust at the time card he said: “Something is wrong. I'm having a good drive but not going anywhere.”

    After losing 1.2sec of his rally lead on Sunday's opening test, Sebastien Loeb admitted he's given away 'a bit too much' though the following SS14, when his title rival Mikko Hirvonen was a massive 11.2sec quicker.
    Heading to Sunday's midpoint regroup, before repeating the same stages this afternoon, Loeb's lead stood at 18.2sec - down from 30.2sec at the start of the day.

    Arriving at the finish control of SS14, the slippery Rheola stage, Loeb said his fourth-fastest time was due to an overly cautious approach. "Yes we're slower than Mikko but it was very, very muddy and tricky so I didn't push too hard," he said. "I took it easy, but for the moment it's okay. For sure we lose a bit too much in this one, but we'll see what we can do on the next."

    Next to complete, a fired-up Hirvonen said he was absolutely on the limit to keep the pressure on his rival and his title hopes alive. "I'm doing all I can," he said. "It’s so, so slippery but I'm doing my best. The car is sliding all over the place, and again we had a couple of worrying moments but I took some more time out. It’s flat-out now. Yes, there's still a big gap to go but I'm not giving up. I'm going to give everything on the two which remain."

    Behind the thrilling duel for the drivers' title, the battle for the final podium place on Rally GB raged on between Dani Sordo and the man chasing him, fellow C4 WRC driver, Petter Solberg. Solberg had the edge on SS14, as he had on the first stage, taking another 7.4sec from Sordo's leading margin, narrowing it to 18.2sec. "It was very slippery and muddy in there but I pushed hard and this fight is on definitely still on!" said Solberg. "I really want third and I will take some big risks to get it. Bloody hell it’s good fun!"

    It all came undone for Mikko Hirvonen's title bid on Rally Great Britain's penultimate stage: flying fast down a straight, the wind picked up his works Ford's bonnet and flipped it over onto the windscreen. The Finn had no choice but to stop and remove the bonnet, losing a minute in the process and all but putting an end to his championship chances today.

    "Now I need a miracle," said a devastated Hirvonen, helpless to do anything else but finish the rally and see how things play out as the season comes to a close. "We'll do that last stage now and see what happens."

    End of Day 3 - Sébastien Loeb wins and secures 6th Drivers Title



    The 2009 World Rally Championship season has concluded with a 54th rally victory and more importantly an amazing sixth world title for Sebastien Loeb.

    Seconds after crossing the season's final finish line at Rally Great Britain in Wales, the Frenchman and co-driver Daniel Elena jumped onto the roof of their Citroen team C4 and pumped their fists into the air as the crowd cheered on the freshly-crowned 2009 champions.

    "It has been a very difficult season," said an emotional Loeb, going on to describe the mid-season low points which saw him lose the lead of the championship until today. "We've done it but it was big, big pressure."

    Referring to the strong challenge presented by Mikko Hirvonen this season, Loeb added that "It will be tough next year for sure," but the 2009 title fight "was one of the best, the battle was intense."

    Winning his sixth World Rally Championship crown is "an incredible feeling!" Loeb exclaimed.

    Mikko Hirvonen took second place in Wales and appeared as the 2009 Vice-Champion.

    After congratulating his rival, the Finn was already thinking of picking up the 2010 drivers' championship fight: "I need to go back and find speed for next year."

    In a shock development on Sunday evening, the winner of the Production Car World Rally Championship category of Rally GB, Eyvind Brynildsen, was excluded from the results after his car was found to be fitted with non regulation brakes.

    At the rally's post event scrutineering, Brynildsen's Skoda Fabia 2000 was found to be fitted with rear brake callipers which did not comply with the homologation form for the car. The callipers fitted in Wales carried the correct homologation number, but were fitted with smaller pistons than those homologated for the vehicle.

    The Stewards later summoned representatives of Brynildsen's team, Errani Team Group SRL, to appear before them to explain the non conformity.

    On being questioned, Bynilden's engineer, Yannick Willocx, stated that the car was in the configuration as supplied by Skoda. A further spare calliper was supplied in evidence, which had the correct homologated part number on the box and on the calliper, but the measurements were also incorrect. Accordingly he stated that Skoda had supplied an incorrect item.

    The Stewards agreed that there was no deliberate intention to deceive but nevertheless decided to exclude the Norwegian from the event.
    Brynildsen's team did not to appeal the decision, which means Mitsubishi driver Martin Prokop was promoted from second to first place.
