SEAJETS Acropolis Rally organisers have promised a breathtaking route for round three of the FIA European Rally Championship.

Taking place from 2-4 June, the legendary event is based in the Municipality of Lamia in the Central Greece region.

Nikos Stavrogiannis, the Mayor of Lamia Municipality, said: “The rally route, designed by OMAE with the complete support of Lamia Municipality as much as of the other contracting members, passes through breathtaking routes of the Roumeli Mountains. Thermopylae, a reference point of Ancient Greek history inextricably linked to bravery, courage, fighting spirit and honour, defines the ideals of this year’s event.”

He continued: “Our municipality and all local authorities are doing their best to prepare the infrastructures of the event. Our unique goal is to give competitors and spectators challenging Acropolis Rally stages in the best condition, in order to offer pleasure and spectacle to everyone.”

This year’s SEAJETS Acropolis Rally features 12 special stages over a competitive distance of 229.74 kilometres.

The SEAJETS Acropolis Rally in Greece hosts round three of the 2017 FIA European Rally Championship from 2-4 June. Key event details and information appear below.

Nikolay Gryazin revved up for next week’s SEAJETS Acropolis Rally by beating Kalle Rovanperä on Rally Talsi in Latvia last weekend – by 0.74 seconds.

Marijan Griebel turned back the clock last week when he got back behind the wheel of the Opel ADAM R2 he drove to the FIA ERC Junior Championship title in 2016.

Bruno Magalhães will continue his bid for FIA European Rally Championship glory after entering next month’s SEAJETS Acropolis Rally as the top seed.

Former FIA European Rally Championship title winners Jan Kopecký and Esapekka Lappi were among the star performers on events in Czech Republic and Portugal last weekend.

Tibor Érdi Jr says winning ERC2 on Rally Islas Canarias was just what was needed in his bid to claim the FIA European Rally Championship category title.
