Next month’s SEAJETS Acropolis Rally will be as close as it gets to a home round of the FIA European Rally Championship for top Turk Murat Bostanci.

Turkey hasn’t hosted a round of the ERC since 2012 when the Bosphorus Rally, run close to Istanbul, formed part of the schedule, meaning the SEAJETS Acropolis Rally is the next best thing.

“We will feel like competing at ‘home’ on the Acropolis Rally because Greece is as close as ERC gets to my home country Turkey.”

Bostanci, who drives a Ford Fiesta R5 for Castrol Ford Team Turkey, has fond memories of the Acropolis after winning ERC3 on the event last season (pictured). This year’s event takes place from 2-4 June and counts as the third round of ERC 2017.
