Event Overview:
In the season’s only back-to-back pair of events, the crews make the short hop across the Mediterranean direct to Corsica from Catalunya. The second asphalt rally in two weekends, Corsica is the most stunning of the year. Once nicknamed the rally of 10,000 corners, the tight and twisty routes that wind through the Corsican coastal mountains are well known for their steep drops and sharp hairpin bends. As, over time, portions of the route are resurfaced, there are a number of surface changes from new smooth asphalt to the original rough pot-holed tracks, making predicting the change in grip difficult. With the service park nestled into the Port of Ajaccio and the stages tracing the shimmering coastline, is it a spectacular rally and one of the year’s greatest challenges.

Day 3 Brief:

Sebastien Loeb took his fourth win in succession in Corsica on Sunday, but the end of the event was somewhat marred by Ford's use of tactics to move Mikko Hirvonen up to second.

Loeb completely dominated the thirteenth round in the World Rally Championship, and just like in Spain last weekend, was in a class of his own, leading from start-to-finish in his Citroen C4 WRC car much to the delight of his home fans.

In total he won 14 of the 16 tests, eventually triumphing by over 3 minutes - although the strategy adopted by the 'Blue Oval' prior to the last test made the margin look double what it should have been.

It was Seb's tenth victory of the year and his fifth in a row - following wins in Finland, Germany, New Zealand and Spain. Loeb now extends his championship lead to 14 points and with just two rounds to go only needs to score 6 more points to make sure of a record fifth title - something never before done in the history of the WRC.

BP Ford Abu Dhabi's Mikko Hirvonen had been second pretty much throughout, until a puncture in the first test on Sunday dropped him behind fellow Ford runners Francois Duval and Jari-Matti Latvala. He still took the runners-up spot though, as Duval and Latvala purposely picked up time penalties prior to SS16, which dropped them behind the Finn and down to third and fourth.

Petter Solberg completed the top five for Subaru - he also lost time with a puncture on the final day SS14 - while Chris Atkinson was sixth in the sister Impreza WRC2008 and Urmo Aava seventh.
