Subaru's world champion Petter Solberg led from start to finish to win the inaugural Rally of Japan on Sunday. The Norwegian, roaring back from a big crash in Germany two weeks ago, was in control from Day One on the fast gravel roads of Hokkaido. He beat Citroen's runaway championship leader, Sebastien Loeb, by a commanding margin of one minute and 13.3 seconds. Loeb leads the standings with 84 points to Solberg's 54, with five rounds remaining. The next rally is in Great Britain from September 17 to September 19. (AP)
