Why Acropolis was the ERC turning point for Nobre
Ever-present FIA European Rally Championship competitor Paulo Nobre has picked the EKO Acropolis Rally as his best moment of 2018.
Nobre scored ERC points for the first time on the Lamia-based event in June, which coincided with an upturn in pace from the Motorsport Italia-run Brazilian.
“All rallies were new for me and every rally had it’s own characteristic and you can like or don’t like,” said Nobre. “I try to take the glass full always and try to enjoy the best of every one. But if I would take one moment I would say in Greece where we were top 10 and where we start to drive a little bit better. We changed a little bit our speed and our confidence and we could make some points in the next rally in Cyprus if we didn’t have the flat tyre.”
Nobre and co-driver Gabriel Morales placed ninth on the EKO Acropolis Rally.
