Citroen Junior Team man Sebastien Ogier has said that his goal this weekend in Norway, just like on the opening round, will be to get to the end as he continues to get to grips with the C4 WRC.

Ogier has had a great start to the year and followed up his IRC Monte Carlo triumph with a sixth place finish on the Rally Ireland, the first round in the 2009 World Rally Championship.

That was only the Frenchman's second outing in a World Rally Car and while snow is very much a step into the unknown for him, he is still very much looking forward to the second event in this year's championship.

"We learnt a lot in Ireland," said the 2008 Junior World Rally champion. "The kilometres that we covered on an asphalt rally - if you could call it asphalt, in those extreme conditions - will be very useful for the future.

"Every time we get into the car we discover some new things and make progress. The Rally Norway will certainly be more enjoyable, although not necessarily any easier.

"I can't wait to be there although we'll be up against people who have much more experience of snow rallies.

"I've already driven a Group N car in Sweden, and I'll be able to have a day of testing before the recce. One of the key objectives of that test will be for me to get used to the tyres and the driving style needed on snow.

"Then, just like Ireland, the goal will be simply to get to the end of the rally without making too many mistakes.

"We'll have to see where we are after the first few stages before we fix any targets in terms of results."
