A broken fuel pipe forced Petter and Chris to retire from Wales Rally GB on the road section to the first stage this morning. – Suddenly there was a fire under the bonnet and the flames were all over the windscreen, says Petter. – We had no other choice than to jump out of the car and put the fire out. It would have been possible to repair the car and continue tomorrow, but we have decided not to restart.

Wales Rally GB is the final event of the season, and Petter and Chris were 4th in the overall classification when they had to retire. – I am obviously very disappointed, Petter continues. – This was not the way I hoped to the end the season or this rally. We were in a good position for a podium, and I believe we had the chance for a third.
