From WRC.com:

Petter Solberg excluded from Rally Sweden

Subaru World Rally Team driver Petter Solberg has been excluded from Rally Sweden after Stewards received a report from the Clerk of the Course that he was not able to start the penultimate stage of Leg 3 at the given time within the maximum 20 seconds.

Even though Solberg and co-driver Mills got out of the car to push it over the starting line for about 100 metres into the stage where the car started and continued, the Stewards considered it a violation to Art. 19.4 of the 2006 FIA General Prescriptions.

Yet Loeb can crash out - not finish a stage - get a 5 minute penalty and end up on the podium?

Some how it just dosen't make sense?

My thoughts exactly - someone needs to think about these rules!

This isn't new. Ever hear of illegal headlamp bulbs in Minis?
