Rally Sweden: Petter Solberg leg 2 summary

Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson are pushing to the limit for a win in Sweden.

Second day in Sweden is completed, and Petter and Chris are still third in the overall classification. Even with a total of 20 seconds penalty, there is only 8,9 seconds between the third and the first place. Petter where given a 10 seconds penalty yesterday for being late out of service, and got another 10 seconds today for checking in to late on SS10 (due to traffic on the road-section).

- I am definitely going for the win now, says Petter Solberg. - I know we still have 6 more stages to go and that anything can happen, but I have to try. Everything has worked out well so far and I get to know both the car and tyres better and better now. Lost some time on the second pass through today, but that was mainly caused by the starting position. For the stages tomorrow, I think my road position is quite good.

Mikko Hirvonen is the overnight leader, while Mads Шstberg, yesterdays leader, has now dropped down to second. Sebastien Loeb is sixth.

Rally Sweden continues Sunday with 6 more stages. The last stage is the Power Stage, which is broadcasted live on TV, and also offers extra points counting in the worldchampion-points for the top three drivers.
