Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson ended second in Wales Rally GB 2010, and secured a third in the 2010 Championship.

Petter Solberg drove in to his 8th podium finish for the season today, when he finished 2nd in Wales Rally GB. Sebastien Loeb won the rally, while Jari Matti Latvala ended third. Rally GB were also the last event on the calendar this year, and with his second today, Petter secured third place in the 2010 Championship.

- This is so great, says Petter Solberg. - We started the season with third in the Championship as our goal, and to be able to full-fill that dream today is just unbelievable. And it is a great payback for all the hard work that my team has done this year. I really thought I should be able to catch up with Loeb today, but unfortunately it was not possible for me to beat him and his works-car. I would also like to send a big thank you to all my sponsors, team and Phil Mills. Phil, you did half the season and are a big part of this!

The 2010 Championship is then over, with Petter Solberg on third in the overall standings. Sebastien Loeb secured his title in France a few weeks ago, while Jari Matti Latvala ended second.
