Acropolis Rally data: Running order + itinerary

More than 50 crews will tackle the Greek classic this weekend. Here are all the Acropolis statistics you need


One of the world’s most demanding and unforgiving rallies is back in the big time this weekend, as the Acropolis Rally makes its much-anticipated return to the World Rally Championship schedule.

There’s fewer stages than we’ve been used to on standard events this year – but that’s fitting as this is no ordinary rally. Of the 11 unique stages that contribute to the 181.56 miles of competitive stage running, only three are repeated in full, though the Tarzan test that doubles as the powerstage is run in two different lengths.

The roads are predicted to be smoother than expected, but the organizer has already promised the same ‘Acropolis Rally of Gods’ challenge experienced in the past. Add in the fact that the weather has also hampered the preparations of the crews on recce, and we should be in for a classic.

Here are the key points to be aware of as the WRC returns to Greece.
