Sebastien Loeb has crashed out of the lead of the Jordan Rally in the most bizarre circumstances.
Loeb was involved in a head-on accident with fellow Citroen C4 WRC driver Conrad Rautenbach on a road section close to SS11.
Nobody was injured in the accident, which happened on a narrow, blind bend as Rautenbach was approaching the stage and Loeb was leaving it.
Both cars received heavy front-end damage in the crash and will be recovered to the Dead Sea service park. It is not yet know whether Loeb or Rautenbach will return as Superally entrants for Sunday’s final day of the competition.
