Chris Atkinson attended Rally Finland last week where he completed reconnaissance of the event.  

The former Subaru World Rally Team driver told World Rally Radio that he would also do the recce for Rally Germany next week.  

Atkinson is desperate to get back into the WRC, but funding has been a problem.

With Sebastien Loeb’s possible move to Volkswagen, the World Rally Radio team asked the Australian about the chances of him taking Loeb’s seat and driving for Citroen.

Atkinson recently Tweeted that his hopes of contesting next month's Rally Australia have come to an end.

"This doesn't mean we have given up on our WRC dream. And let's get Rally Australia the permanent place on the calendar that it deserves!"
