Britain's Matthew Wilson will be looking to build on his steady performance in Ireland and collect more points on Rally Norway this coming weekend, the second round in the 2009 World Rally Championship.

Wilson finished seventh on the season opener in his Stobart Ford Focus RS WRC08 and having notched up two points is now keen to get some more and add to his tally.

The Englishman hasn't had much luck on snow over the years and while he was on course to take fifth in Sweden last year, disaster struck in the penultimate stage, when a mechanical problem put him out.

Despite that though, he does like competing on the 'white stuff' and a pre-event test yesterday [Monday], should help give him a valuable insight into the conditions he will face.

"I really enjoy snow rallies, they are a unique experience, and I can't wait to start in Norway," said Matt, who will again be in the 'third' car and not nominated to score manufacturers' points.

"I've seen some photos of the stages and they look to be in fantastic condition.

"The only unknown factor will be the new tyres, but we've heard good reports from previous tests and I will get a chance to try them when we have our own test on Monday.

"We started well in Ireland and now the emphasis for me is to continue to collect driver points and build upon our consistent performances."
