Loeb claims 3rd straight Wales Rally GB title

World champion Sebastien Loeb won his third straight Wales Rally

GB title Sunday by finishing 19.1 seconds ahead of Petter Solberg

in the season’s final event.

The French driver, who was already assured of a seventh world

title, began the day with a lead of 4.8 seconds over his Norwegian

rival and extended his advantage in all four stages Sunday to claim

his 62nd career win and eighth this season.

Citroen driver Loeb says ”it was definitely the longest battle

I’ve had this season.”

Ford’s Jari-Matti Latvala came third in the stage to snatch

second place overall, two points ahead of Solberg, and teammate

Mikko Hirvonen was fourth.
