Solberg takes first WRC home win for Subaru.
2003 World Rally champion Petter Solberg has won the first WRC Rally Japan today [Sunday], giving Subaru victory on home soil. The Norwegian cruised through the final day, and although he didn't set any fastest stages times, he was always 'there or there abouts', pacing himself and maintaining his lead over Sebastien Loeb.
Solberg, who had led from start to finish, eventually took the honours by 1 minute 13.3 seconds. It was his third win of the season.
