The Mercury: Fatal crash mars GB rally [19sep05]

"Citroen's race leader Sebastien Loeb, who would have clinched his second successive championship as a result, then took time penalties to ensure he did not win in such circumstances."

The circumstances was the death of one of the co-drivers Michael Park. If he had not taken the penalty he would have won the series as the rest of the stage ahad been cancelled. Pretty decent of him to not win in these circumstances.

This is one of the great things about Rallying. Competition more often than not is with oneself and not the kill em' all attitude that other sports require. Now if only the showcasing of Rallying was made better:(
