Britain's Matthew Wilson has predicted that he should be able to score points on the RallyRACC Catalunya-Costa Daurada this weekend.

With several weeks break since the previous World Rally Championship round in New Zealand, Wilson is hungry to get the ball rolling again and in addition to his usual fitness regime, the 21-year-old spent a day with renowned driver coach Rob Wilson last week to fine-tune his tarmac skills.

He also contested the Colin McRae Forest Stages Rally at the weekend and having taken a dominant win there - up against a raft of rallying superstars including four former World Rally champions - he heads into the twelfth event in the championship on something of a high.

Speaking ahead of the Rally de Espana, the Stobart Ford man added that his main wish is for dry conditions and no rain.

"It will be nice to go back to a consistent tarmac event in Spain and hopefully things will stay dry for us," he stated.

"I prefer the nature of these stages to Germany as the roads are consistent over all three days whereas Germany there was a lot of variation.

"Being with Rob [Wilson] recently should be good preparation for the event.

"We are back scoring points for the Stobart team and I am sporting my lucky number 7 so looking forward to starting the event.

"The weather again will play a big part and if it is consistent and we can get off to a positive start during the shakedown I think a points' finish is certainly on the cards for me."
