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.
