Retirement, then a robbery
Argentina - Petter Solberg World Rally Team - Finish
Sunday was a bad day for Petter Solberg: firstly, he retired from Rally Argentina, and secondly, his team got robbed at service.

"This was not what we came here for," Solberg said when he returned back to service
after his retirement.

"We were third, and I intended to keep that position, but then we lost the fuel pressure," he explained. "Five kilometres before the finish line it all stopped. No fuel pressure at all, and there was nothing we could do about it. We had no other choice than to retire."

The weekend started well for Solberg and co-driver Phil Mills with a stage win on Friday. They had to tackle a few problems on Saturday when they lost the boost and later on dealt with a puncture and an overheating engine on their Citroen Xsara WRC.

But the Petter Solberg World Rally Team duo managed to finish Day Two in fourth position overall. Sunday started out good but came to a sudden end when they lost the fuel pressure and had to retire.


Then, just as the team members were packing everything at the service park, someone stole Team Manager Ken Rees' briefcase. Within it were documentation, plans, a laptop, money, and passports.

"What a day," Solberg sighed. "First we got ripped off from our third place, and then we got robbed. When you travel around the world like we do, the briefcase is your office and loosing that is a disaster. The money can be replaced, but can you imagine all the work hours that briefcase contained!"

Solberg will recover from the Argentine efforts and letdown with a week's holiday together with his family.

Afterwards preparations begin for the next World Rally Championship challenge: Rally d'Italia Sardegna from 21st to 24th May.
