Podcast: Why this year’s Acropolis could be like no other

The latest instalment of SPIN, The Rally Pod focuses on the Acropolis and the WRC's future


The Acropolis is back – but perhaps not as we know it. Unseasonal weather has transformed the look of the stages, and could greatly alter what we should expect from the rally.

That’s the main talking point in the latest edition of SPIN, The Rally Pod. Lisa O’Sullivan chairs the discussion between senior staff writer David Evans, former WRC team manager George Donaldson and Colin Clark who joins live from the scene in Greece.

Could we be in for another Sébastien Ogier masterclass? What must Elfyn Evans do to respond? And what inroads can Hyundai make on Toyota’s advantage?


Plus, following a presentation from WRC Promoter in Munich this week, there’s a discussion about the future direction of the World Rally Championship. Is the new three-year Rally1 rule cycle enough, or should rallying be making further strides forward?

Listen to what our experts have to say and then leave us your thoughts in the comments.
