Stobart Ford's Henning Solberg is hoping for a change of luck in Poland after the frustration in Greece.

Solberg struggled with the set-up of his car during the recent Acropolis Rally and had his podium challenge ruined on day two when he hit a rock and damaged the suspension on his Focus RS WRC.

Since then though he has been working hard with his engineer on getting his car more to his likening and now he is hopeful he can make a strong start to the eighth round in this year's World Rally Championship, which kicks off on Thursday night.

Furthermore he believes the fact the Mikolajki-based event is new to the WRC could also help him as he bids to take his sixth points finish of the season - and ideally put it on the podium, like he managed in Argentina.

"I'm looking forward to Poland and I enjoy the challenge of a new event," said the Norwegian, who has 21-points in the bag so far.

"As we saw in Greece, events with new stages can mix up the results and it puts the non-factory drivers on a more level ground.

"I think the stages will have a bit of everything so the secret will be adapting to these new conditions as soon as possible and making an accurate set of pacenotes on the recce.

"I've been unlucky with a few events this year so hopefully that will stop now and we can concentrate on the next gravel events."
