Sebastien Loeb of France has won the Rally Bulgaria to clinch his fourth victory in this season's world championship.

The reigning six-time world champion led the 220-mile all-asphalt rally from beginning to end and finished 29.5 seconds ahead of Spanish teammate Dani Sordo, who was second in a Citroen C4 car.

The final day saw a tense battle for second between Sordo and Petter Solberg of Norway, who was also driving a Citroen. Solberg finished third, 6.8 seconds behind Sordo.

French driver Sebastien Ogier finished in fourth place to secure the leading four positions for Citroen - the best world championship result for a carmaker since Toyota posted a similar result at the 1993 Safari Rally.
