Rallying: Latvala repeats his British triumph
Monday 17 September 2012
Finland's Jari-Matti Latvala won the Rally of Britain for Ford yesterday, while Citroën's Sebastien Loeb moved closer to a ninth successive world title after finishing second.
Latvala's victory, the 27-year-old's second in succession in Britain and first race win for seven months, ended a run of five in a row by Frenchman Loeb dating back to Argentina in April. The Norwegian Petter Solberg was third for Ford while his compatriot Mads Ostberg – a long-time podium threat – nursed his Adapta Ford home for fourth as engine issues affected his final leg.
