Henning Solberg and his co-driver Kato Menkerud were driving along the 3rd. SS of Rally Turquey, when all of a sudden a local hero in a blue Subaru hits them head to head in the inside of a corner ..

They get uninjured from the accident, but the problems weren't over yet .. the T?rk, which were going to start the rally in his Subaru which were now wrecked, didn't want to take responsibility for the accident, and the law says "if the parts don't agree on who's fault it is within two days, a court will decide"! So since this weren't an option for Henning, as he was racing the day after.

In small places in T?rquey, like the place the accident happened, the military police rules. So called "Jandarma's". They were in the mountains, they had to go to the police station, there sat 10+ "Jandarma's", and Henning was very nervous.
He asked: "how much to fix the car?"
They answered: "15.000 Euros"
He asked: "How much to buy the car"
They answered: "15.000 Euros"
So he had to sign a note which said, "I am Henning Solberg, and I am buying this Subaru"

He will get the Subaru, get it to Norway fix it and sell it again ..

He said he has never felt so fooled in his whole life ..

It's probably the pic he found of him... It's not from the accident, I guess.

Hmmm, well if he does it up, and keeps hush hush about the accident, he'll get a bit more cash for it. Might be of benefit (if he then sends the profit to a charity!)

Dirtbags. I suppose typical behavior of this type of Government.
