Sordo out to play his part in Norway

Daniel Sordo is feeling 'fired-up' and determined to do well on Rally Norway this week, even though snow is far from his favourite surface.

The Spaniard claimed his best result to date on snow last year, when he finished sixth in Sweden. Although the WRC's winter fixture takes place in Norway this season, he remains bullish and keen to again get solid points.

Furthermore a good pre-event test has bolstered his confidence and helped eradicate memories of the inaugural Rally Norway, where he only finished 25th after going off on the opening stage on day two.

"I've put my modest performance in [Norway in] 2007 behind me and, anyway, so much has changed since then,” he noted.

“I have more experience, considerable work has gone into the car and our recent testing has also helped boost my confidence.

“I'm not saying that snow has become my favourite type of surface, but I am extremely fired up.

“I want to play my part in scoring another top result for Citroen following our recent 1-2 success in Ireland."

Citroen Total WRT boss Olivier Quesnel meanwhile added that Norway is likely to be a lot tougher for them than Ireland.

"After kicking off the season on asphalt, we now move on to a very different sort of terrain. It's true that we are not favourites to win in Norway,” he added, ”but we will do our best to spring a surprise!”

“The engineers and crews have worked hard to prepare for this specific event and, with just 12 rounds counting towards this year's World Rally Championship, we will need to profit from every opportunity we are given to extend our lead in both championships."
