With just 10 days remaining for the start of SEAJETS Acropolis Rally 2015, the stars of both European Rally Championship and Greek Rally Championship are preparing themselves for the most demanding event of the two calendars. 29 crews will be able to gather points for the ERC, while 17 of them are international competitors. The Greek crews will have a strong presence in the event, in both terms of quantity and quality. The 2-day event will be based for the 6th consecutive time in Loutraki and will be held in 10-11 October. It is worth noting that although the main surface is gravel, 27% of the stages will be tarmac and this leads to a very high amount of complexity, maybe the highest in Acropolis’ recent history.
The SEAJETS Acropolis Rally 2015 welcomes the top contenders of the European titles. Both Craig Breen and Kajetan Kajetanowicz in the Peugeot 208 T16 and Ford Fiesta R5 respectively, are about to go "head to head" in the Greek mountains, with a view of the title. A nice surprise is the entry of Alexey Lukyanuk, who seems capable for the best, as his previous outings show. The driver in the Belarusian flag will compete behind the wheel of a Ford Fiesta R5 and is one of the drivers expected to be loved by the spectators, due to his highly spectacular way of driving!
Another attraction will be the presence of highly competitive Greek crews, as Lambros Athanassoulas-Nikos Zakheos and Lambros Kirkos-George Polizois, who will drive Skoda Fabia R5 and Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX. The crew of Athanassoulas-Zakheos will be looking after a good result in the overall classification, while Kirkos, the Greek Rally Champion will be among the favorites of claiming the victory in Production Category, whilst it is widely understood than in this event, he will try to seal another national title.
A very pleasing fact is that the Greek spectators will have the chance to watch closely some top spec cars. Amongst the top drivers are the Czech Jaromir Tarabus in a Skoda Fabia S2000, the Frenchman Charles Martin in a Peugeot 208 T16, the Portuguese champion Bruno Magalhaes in a similar car, the French Robert Consani in a Citroen DS3 R5 as well as our fellow compatriot Iordanis Serderidis in a same car.
Returning to the Greek participants, a number of crews will compete for the victory in Production Category and of course, for the victory of the Greek round, as the 2015 SEAJETS Acropolis Rally is the 5th and 6th round of the Greek Rally Championship. Amongst them, there are experienced drivers such as George Philippides, behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX, while the Greek Champion of 2012 Grigoris Nioras, will also be in action after several months of absence, in his Subaru Impreza N12.
