Dumfries rally driver David Bogie has run into problems in the second half of the Malcolm Wilson Rally.
The Scottish champion was lying in second place going into the afternoon stages but picked up a puncture, which caused suspension damage.
"It was at the start of stage five, we went out a bit wide. We changed the puncture and continued into stage six but there was obvious rear suspension damage which made the car difficult to handle.
"We've lost a lot of time."
Penrith driver Paul Bird is leading with two more stages to go.
