Loeb keeps lead in Monte Carlo Rally

BY foxsports • January 22, 2012

Sebastien Loeb kept his lead on the fourth day of the season-opening Monte Carlo Rally and Petter Solberg closed the gap on Daniel Sordo in the fight for second place on Saturday.

Although Loeb failed to win a stage for the second straight day, the Frenchman leads Sordo overall by 2 minutes, 41.6 seconds.

Loeb took few risks in his Citroen and only needs a conservative run in the short final state Sunday to win.
