The Monte Carlo Rally used to be a snow race but global warming has pretty much turned into a straight tarmac rally.

Thursday,  Sebastien Loeb consolidated his lead while Mini's Dani Sordo, who Spanish papers say took a 30% pay cut in order to get the seat, moved into 2nd followed by Petter Solberg in a Ford.

Sebastien Ogier crashed his Skoda hard, a scary accident that luckily resulted in just a minor injury to his navigator, Julien Ingrassia.

  1. what i found strange is that the accident happened on the second loop, he'd already been on that stage, so big mistake by Ogier.

    Anyway up until that moment he was UNBELIEVABLY quick, considering he is driving an S2000... 4th overall after the first day, 6th overall at the moment of the crash... impressive! can't wait for 2013 Polo WRC
