Kris Meeke is hoping a leveller playing field will work to his advantage as the World Rally Championship prepares to return to Poland for the first time since 2009.

The British driver, who is currently seventh in the overall WRC standings with two podiums, competed in Poland back in 2006 driving a Citroen C2 before it was included on the world championship calendar for just a single season five years ago.

With that in mind, Meeke is hoping its relative newness will help him in his quest to get on terms with his more experienced rivals as they tackle the stages for the first time.
