Ogier takes charge of season-ending Wales Rally GB

CARDIFF, Wales (AP) — Sebastien Ogier is on course to finish his title-winning world rally campaign with another victory after taking a 20.1-second lead after two days of the season-ending Wales Rally GB.

The Frenchman won four of Friday's six stages to pull clear of Volkswagen teammate Jari-Matti Latvala. Thierry Neuville, who drives a Ford, is more than a minute off the lead in third place. Former Formula One driver Robert Kubica crashed out of his first WRC event, rolling his Citroen on stage four. Organizers say Kubica and his co-driver, Michele Ferrara, were unharmed in the incident.

Ogier clinched his first title in front of his home fans last month.
