Kevin Abbring says he wants to show everyone what he can do as he gears up for the start of his four-event stint in this year's World Rally Championship for Hyundai.

This weekend the Dutch driver competes in the European Rally championship at the Kenotek Ypres Rally in Belgium, which will act as his final preparation for WRC's Rally Poland next month.

It was recently announced by Hyundai that the 26-year-old had been rewarded for his efforts this year with a four-event deal to team up alongside Hayden Paddon in Hyundai's second string team, which means four Hyundai i20 WRC machines will contest the premier class.

Abbring has competed in WRC already this season in Sweden when Paddon was promoted to the first team to fill in for the injured Dani Sordo, while Abbring slotted in for Paddon. Abbring took a career-equal best 11th place finish at the snowy event but feels Poland will mark a new chapter in his burgeoning WRC campaign.

The Dutchman has fond memories of Poland after claiming his maiden Junior WRC rally victory in 2009 for Knaf Talent First while he finished an impressive 11th in the overall classification.

"It's a very fast, sandy rally with narrow bits in the forest," Abbring said. "The fast roads over crests are really nice. It's my first gravel event in a WRC car and I'm still getting used to the car so it will be important to get the pace notes right and to build up a rhythm.

"It'll be good to see four cars lined up in our service park and I hope to show everyone what I'm capable of."

Rally Poland will mark the seventh round of the 2015 World Rally Championship, scheduled for the 3-5 July.
