VOLKSWAGEN'S Jari-Matti Latvala claimed three [...].
Latvala claimed three consecutive victories on special stages 12 to 14 after Andreas Mikkelsen claimed the fastest time in the opening two outings of the day.
World champion Sebastian Ogier, who had dominated Friday's rallying with four wins from six, failed to win a stage, with Thierry Neuville taking SS16.
However, Ogier will take a 20-second lead into the final day of the Rally GB today.
"Sometimes you really get a big kick when you do a good stage," Latvala said.
"Ogier has been really quick but he is also human and he cannot do a perfect run in every stage."
Russia's Evgeny Novikov crashed out when he lost control of his Ford Fiesta RS on a fast right bend six kilometres after the start of the 21.90km Dyfi stage.
Robert Kubica also crashed out on the second stage, blaming a pace-note misunderstanding for his misfortune which could end his rally.
"We hit big rock but I think we just had a misunderstanding in the pace notes," Kubica said.
"In a place where I should be braking I was still flat, and by the time I saw the corner it was too late."
