Citroen number two driver Dani Sordo has retired from the Rally of Turkey today in the final loop.

Sordo, who had been running third, went out near the end of SS21, the 16.76 kilometre Deniz 2 test, due to suspension issues. Sebastien Loeb meanwhile set the pace in the test, 5 seconds up on Mikko Hirvonen, to increase his overall lead to 28.9 seconds.
