Petter Solberg has run into difficulties on the Acropolis Rally after hitting a rock in the penultimate test of the day.

The Norwegian, who had been in a strong second - 21.9 seconds behind rally leader, Mikko Hirvonen, managed to make it through SS11, the repeat run through Ghymno 2, however, it is not yet clear if he will be able to get through SS12 and back to service due to suspension damage.

"I was attacking," said 'Hollywood'. "We hit a rock and destroyed the left front top mount. The bumper popped out of the bonnet. I don't know if we can fix it, it is a pity."

Petter meanwhile wasn't the only casualty this afternoon, as Mads Ostberg also went out with suspension damage. Ostberg had been fourth overall in his Adapta-run Subaru Impreza.

Day two has now claimed five notable scalps, with Sebastien Loeb, Dani Sordo and Henning Solberg all victims this morning.
