Natalie Barratt and her new co-driver, Australian Dale Moscatt, want to score WRC points at the last event of the FIA Production Car World Rally Championship at this weekend’s Rally of New Zealand.

Barratt’s car is also a novelty as for the first time she will steer a Mitsubishi Evo IX.

Barratt and Moscatt completed 80 kilometres of testing earlier this week.

"The tests were very important for us. We experimented with different suspension adjustments and co-ordinated the pace notes. Everyone has their own special way to write down notes", says the OMV driver, "but since all but two special stages are new we won't have the time for that during the recce."

Barratt will compete at the Rally New Zealand for the fifth time. For her co-driver, and reigning Australian Rally Champion - it will be the second time at a WRC run in Kiwi Country.

Following the first day of recce the OMV duo agrees: "The new special stages are much more difficult and also very slippery at times. The average speed will definitely be lower - especially if the predicted rainfalls set in."
