Result – Rally of Turkey.

Sebastien Loeb makes it four WRC wins in a row with victory on the Rally of Turkey, over a minute clear of Petter Solberg. Marcus Gronholm takes the final podium place while the one off return of Carlos Sainz is rewarded with a fourth place finish.

In the Production Car World Rally Championship, Toshi Arai battles back from problems earlier in the event to overhaul Marcos Ligato on the very last stage and take victory, while Brit Mark Higgins retires from second on the final stage...
