>>WRCITALIA lose one Prokop survives scare to take JWRC points IT was the only time this season that all the registered Junior Championship contenders would be seen together and it was another close battle, eventually won by Citroen driver Martin Prokop. After leading early on, Prokop suffered from a near- disastrous electrical failure on a road section but finally recovered to regain the lead from Michal Kosciuszko when the Polish driver had a puncture on the final day. Alessandro Bettega led for a while before impacting a rock which shot the car off the road, and he had to wait for spectators to help him. Aaron Burkart went cautiously to finish third. Kosciuszko now holds a six point lead in the series, with the next round of the JWRC taking place in his home country. took Portugal hit well Crash not as bad as Galli in Germany 08 Loriaux: Latvala’s car M-SPORT Technical Director Christian Loriaux talked about Latvala’s crash in Portugal during the Sardegna event. “It was, of course, a spectacular accident,” he said, “and because it was such a long accident it must have been very frightening, but it wasn’t the worst one we have had. “There was no massive impact at high speed. The car did very well. The accident for Gig Galli in Germany [last year], for me, was a lot more severe; hitting something immoveable very hard at high speed. “What impressed me most was that the main roll cage tube has not moved at all – not a millimetre. That confirmed the way the cage was designed. It was a success for using the pyramid system, which we started with the 2003 Focus, systems which other people have [since] followed.” CATALUNYA 1 Jari-Matti Latvala Ford Miikka Antilla 4:00:55.7s 2 Mikko Hirvonen Ford 3 Petter Solberg Citroen Phil Mills 4 Sebastien Loeb Citroen Daniel Elena 5 Evgeny Novikov Citroen Dale Moscatt 6 Matthew Wilson Scott Martin Ford Jarmo Lehtinen +29.4s +1:57.6s +1:43.7s* +5:11.8s +7:29.3s 7 Mads Ostberg Subaru Vanessa Engan +13:20.6s 8 Henning Solberg Ford Cato Menkkerud +13:21.2s Points: Loeb 55, Hirvonen 38, Sordo 31, H Solberg 2, P Solberg 20, Latvala 19. 41
