SEBASTIEN Ogier and Team Volkswagen have World Rally Championship glory at their finger tips - they just need to overcome the challenges of the Aussie bush to win a maiden title.
Ogier is shaping up to be the big story of the Coates Hire Rally Australia - Coffs Coast.
Many say he just has to finish the four-day rally, starting Thursday, to clinch his first WRC drivers' championship.
To do so would cap off a dream run for Volkswagen in its first campaign to win the manufacturers' title with the VW Polo.
"This is my chance to secure the title for the first time and it's definitely my big target," Ogier said.
"When you try to push the limits in a rally it's always a place for mistakes.
"So it's our job to avoid the tricky things out there and to finish the title off as a team."
Taking time out from their preparations for Rally Australia, Jari-Matti Latvala, Andreas Mikkelsen and Ogier were happy to pose for photos at the Coffs Harbour International Marina.
The guys say they hope the next team photo shoot will be a champagne spray on the podium on Sunday.
