Ford M-Sport driver Teemu Suninen believes that he can achieve a strong result on his first appearance on RallyRACC Catalunya in a top-level WRC car.

Sunninen, who won the WRC2 class on the Spanish mixed surface event last season for M-Sport wants to show he has the speed to be challenging at the top of the overall standings alongside title contender and teammate Sébastien Ogier on the 2018 edition of the rally.

“I have contested Rally Spain every year since my debut season in 2015 and it’s an event I like a lot. I’m looking forward to heading back there this year and attacking the stages for the first time in a world rally car.” said Suninen ahead of the upcoming weekend.

He added: “We had a test on the Spanish asphalt last week and the car felt good immediately. The set-up for this sort of asphalt is pretty unique and you can really attack the stages like you would on a circuit. The gravel stages are quite narrow and similar to those in Portugal.”

Rally RallyRACC Catalunya – Rally de España begins on Thursday evening and continues throughout the weekend.
