Petter is 2nd day 2 in Turkey

- I'm so happy about the day and the rally so far, says Petter Solberg. -- I'm not going flat out all the time, these stages are so rough on the car that I need to back off a little. We are a small private team, with limited resources so I need to be careful. Had a puncture 7km before the finish on SS16 today and that probably cost me some time, other than that everything has been perfect. And it is so great to actually be fighting in the lead with the big manufacturer teams.

The second day here in Turkey is completed, with Petter and Phil second. 8 stages have been competed today, and Petter and Phil have been fastest through two of them and second fastest through two other. Sebastien Loeb is leading the rally, while Mikko Hirvonen is third. The overnight leader from Friday, Sebastien Ogier, has really been on the pace today, but a puncture and stop on SS15 dropped him down to fifth. Latvala rolled on the first stage of today, damaged the car, and lost a lot of time on the first loop of stages.

Rally of Turkey continues Sunday with 114km and 6 stages. First car is on the road from 0910 (local time).
