The countdown to the SEAJETS Acropolis Rally, round three of the FIA European Rally Championship, is well and truly underway as ERC regulars prepare for success on this legendary event.

Based in the town of Lamia and taking place from 2-4 June, the SEAJETS Acropolis Rally counts for ERC1, ERC2, ERC3 and ERC Ladies’ Trophy points as well as the revamped FIA European Rally Championship for Teams.

The event will feature 12 stages over a competitive distance of 229.74 kilometres with the action due to begin with the Qualifying Stage from 11h23 local time on Friday 2 June.

Alexey Lukyanuk, the winner of Rally Islas Canarias earlier this month, is set to contest the SEAJETS Acropolis Rally for Russian Performance Motorsport. He’s currently second in the standings behind Bruno Magalhães.

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.

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.
