30 YOHAN ROSSEL/ALEXANDRE CORIA
“Nice stages, although they were rough. We had two punctures on the rear. We are satisfied so far, because we are competing for the Championship. We have different strategy with drivers like Ingram and Lindholm. We manage our strategy day by day”.
31 KAJETAN KAJETANOWICZ/MACIEJ SZCZEPANIAK
“We are in the second place, which is good! After the repeat of stage SS4, it was more dry than expected. Tomorrow we expect more mud. We have a clean drive and the car is working very well. First of all we need to check the car and then we will define our strategy”.
32 FABRIZIO ZALDIVAR/CARLOS DEL BARRIO
“We are avoiding all the rocks and had no problems with the car. We had no punctures. The stages were as rough as expected”.
34 CHRIS INGRAM/ROSS WHITTOCK
“Very good day. It’s our first Rally with Toksport Team again. The team with which we won the ERC. The stages were amazing, some of the best I have ever seen. Especially the stage in Athens was great. Today we didn’t have major problems. Of course there are lots to improve”.
35 EMIL LINDHOLM/REETA HÄMÄLÄINEN
“It was an interesting day. Similar to what we expected and not massively rough. I enjoyed SS Aghii Theodori both times, because the last section was very nice. To be honest, I don’t care so much about the result. I am here mostly for the experience, but still satisfied”.
40 LAMBROS ATHANASSOULAS/NIKOLAOS ZAKCHAIOS
Retired at SS3 due to broken steering arm.
41 ALEX TSOULOFTAS/STELIOS ELIA
Retired at SS1 due to broken suspension.
45 GEORGIOS KECHAGIAS/MARIOS TSAOUSOGLOU
“Everything was fine. We pushed in the first stages, which we knew better. After that we were more careful, so that we can return to the service”.
46 PANAGIOTIS ROUSTEMIS/KONSTANTINOS NIKOLOPOULOS
“Today was really difficult. We try to learn the car, but also how the surface changes. We try to save the car and come back to Lamia. Tomorrow we will try to do better in the stages of Lamia”.
47 PANAGIOTIS CHATZITSOPANIS/NIKOS PETROPOULOS
“It’s been a long time since we drove a rally car, and we have to get used to it. Especially at Acropolis Rally. The stages were difficult. We had a puncture in SS3. Today we made our first kilometres with the car, we started carefully, but after that we increased our speed. We are ready for tomorrow”.
48 VASILEIOS VELANIS/IOANNIS VELANIS
“Difficult day, but we achieved our goal. SS Aghii Theodori had a lot of stones. We drove carefully to protect our car. The new car is really good”.
49 IOANNIS PLAGOS/ALKIVIADIS RENTIS
“Today was difficult because there was dust in the car and we didn’t have good visibility. In SS3 we had a puncture and we changed in the stage. Our first experience on gravel after years was really nice. We are learning the car and I think we will improve during the Rally and push more”.
