The week of the 64th Acropolis Rally, round 3 of the European Rally Championship, began with the first tests for several top ERC crews in the classic stages of Pavliani and Kaloskopi.
Their aim, under a partially cloudy sky, was of course to familiarize themselves with the Greek gravel and to find the proper set-up of cars for the upcoming special stages –and even the possibility of rain. On Tuesday 29/5 the crews will start the official reconnaissance of the Acropolis Rally’s special stages.

“We know the race is hard. Our main goal is to see how the race will evolve, try not to have a puncture or other problems. These are the keys to success. Almost half of the special stages are new for us, while others have the opposite direction, so we need to write new notes. The conditions for all drivers will be virtually the same and this is positive.”
