Rallye Deutschland: Back pain sidelines Kosciuszko

Michal Kosciuszko forced out in Germany
Michal Kosciuszko has had to retire from day two of Rallye Deutschland after injuring his back this morning on the opening loop.

The Pole had been on course for another top ten, when he was forced out in his Lotos Team WRC Ford Fiesta RS WRC car following SS5.

“Suffering from severe back pain following some heavy compressions, Kosciuszko was left with no option [but to retire] as this afternoon's tight hairpin junctions have the potential to cause further damage,” read a statement to the media.

“Following a consultation with the team physician, Kosciuszko has been taken to hospital for further checks and a decision remains as to whether he will restart under Rally 2 regulations tomorrow [Saturday].”
