Marcus Gronholm's prot?g?, Kosti Katajamaki has said that he will be after a 'good result' on the Rally Finland this coming weekend, his fourth outing in the Stobart VK-backed Ford Focus.

Katajamaki was last out with the Stobart VK team back in Greece, however to date this season his results haven't been especially good and after a sixth place finish in Sweden, it was all down hill in Sardinia, where he retired and in Greece, where he was eventually classified in 26th position. This weekend though he has high hopes and he will be hoping to utilise his local expertise and show he has what it takes to succeed at the pinnacle of the sport.

"It is obviously my home rally so I will be trying for a good result," he noted. "It is a very fast rally and I like my rallies that way as it is how I am quickest; twisty and narrow I don't like so much. To be fast you have to choose the right lines and be committed. I will have a lot of my fans and sponsors there so I will be trying hard for them."

As for if he has a specific target, he added that his only aim is to improve his stages times as the event goes on: "The only target I have for the rally is to be faster and faster on every stage and progress all the time," he confirmed.

Katajamaki won't be the only driver in action for the Stobart squad though and in addition to Matthew Wilson, Stobart will also again run a car for Barry Clark, who will be competing in the FIA Junior World Rally Championship and the Fiesta SportingTrophy International.

"I've never been to Finland so it should be an interesting event," stated Clark, fresh from a tenth place finish in the JWRC class in Germany and third in the FSTi. "The aim is the Rookie championship in the JWRC but we also have the competition of the other Fiesta STs and I expect Kalle Keskinen will be a good measure of pace there as it's his home event. It looks like it's going to be a lot of fun but we'll just have to see what happens when we get there."
