M-Sport World Rally Team's Elfyn Evans is looking forward to the World Rally Championship's Rally Poland, with the promise of a high speed event pleasing following a series of slower rallies.

Friday will be especially challenging for teams, as they need to be careful as well as fast, with 155 kilometres of running without a midday service stop.

"This is a really fast event which will be a bit of a shock to the system after a series of relatively slow rallies, but I'm certainly looking forward to another new challenge," he said. "I think a lot will come down to the character and the nature of the stages themselves.

"Last year we saw something of an ebb and flow in terms of road position. Some stages saw a lot of cleaning, whereas others cut-up and become slower.

"We'll have to wait and see how it is this year but either way we are in the middle of the pack. We won't get the optimum advantage from road cleaning, but we shouldn't be disadvantaged too much should the stages deteriorate."

After a disastrous Rally Portugal, Evans has bounced back to form with a fourth place finish in Italy and will be hoping for maintain his momentum this weekend.

"I think there have been some real positives over the past couple of rallies, but for various reasons some of the results haven't quite been what we wanted," he explained. "We need to refocus and concentrate on the positives. I really want to enjoy this one, and hopefully everything will come together for us."
