Halkias announces ERC Acropolis bid
Themis Halkias will fly the Greek flag when he contests his home round of the FIA European Rally Championship next month.
Halkias, the 2017 Greek Gravel Cup winner, is entering the EKO Acropolis Rally under the Halkias Racing Team banner to drive a Motorsport Italia-prepared ŠKODA Fabia R5.
“A dream of life is getting reality as we will participate in our national race with a top racing car and with an excellent team,” said Halkias. “We want to enjoy the car and offer great spectacle to the fans at special stages.”
Halkias was the top Greek finisher on the Acropolis Rally in 2013 when it counted for world championship points.
Meanwhile, Leonidas Mahairas, one of the most experienced Greek co-drivers with more than 150 starts and several victories, will navigate Halkias.
The EKO Acropolis Rally forms the third event of the 2018 ERC season and takes place from 1-3 June.
