Elfyn Evans says the revised Rally Argentina route will create parity between the drivers as the World Rally Championship heads to South America for round four of the 2015 season.

The M-Sport driver has enjoyed a solid start to his second full WRC campaign, improving in each round with his current high point coming in Mexico with a fourth place, equalling his best career finish.

The Welshman is in buoyant spirits ahead of Rally Argentina and sees the event's redesign as a potential advantage he can use against his more experienced rivals.

"This will be a completely different rally to last year where the focus was purely on getting to the end of the event," Evans said. "While we still want to aim for a solid result, I hope that we can show a significant improvement from this time 12 months ago.

"There will be a lot of new stages this year but they'll be new for everyone. That's a good thing for us because those who would have had six or seven years of experience could have had a big advantage, but now it's more of a level playing field."

For 2015 there is two new 50km stages to race in along with a mix of contrasting conditions. The fast and flowing tracks of the Calamuchita Valley will be complimented by rugged and narrow mountain tracks in Punilla and Evans feels they'll pose a difficult challenge.

"The biggest challenge is the nature of the stages themselves. Each day is really different but there is always very little margin for error. There is always something on the side of the road to hit so you have to run a fairly clean rally for the majority and keep mistakes to a minimum."

Evans completed a solid debut in Argentina last year by taking seventh place in the final classification.

The Ford Fiesta RS driver sits fifth in the WRC standings after three rounds but is the only driver in the top six without a podium appearance to his name.
