Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson finish second in Spain!

Rally Spain, 22 – 24 October 2010

Rally Spain is completed and Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson ended in second place. They finished the day 2 in second position, and managed to keep Dani Sordo behind until the finish line. Sebastien Loeb won Rally Spain, and Dani Sordo ended third.

Our second place today feels really good, says Petter Solberg. – This is a great result for both the team, and us and makes it extremely exciting for Wales in a couple of weeks. I had everything under control today, and drove on the split-times that was send to me in the car. Lost a few seconds when I didn’t get two of the splits, but caught up with that on the next one. Now we will look ahead to Wales, and make sure we are fully prepared, as I really want to win there!

Next event, and the season finale, is in Wales, 11. – 14. November 2010.
