    Seajets Acropolis Rally 2017

    Acropolis is only four weeks away now.

    Guess the entry list might not be quite so good for Acropolis as it's not a JERC round.

    I presume Lukyanuk and Kajto are going though? Sounds like Bouffier is missing Acropolis but going to Cyprus.

    Hopefully Magalhaes may get the budget to go after his excellent start to the season?

    @N.O.T Are you going to visit the rally? Or are their too many nobodies competing? I guess it's way below your level, isn't it...?

    Any know the reason why Acropolis and Cyprus were the events left out of the Junior ERC ? There are 4 tarmac events and only two gravel rounds in the JERC. #justasking

    In ERCJ should be only 6 events, to have chance for this championship to have lot of participations. And at least of the costs for running cars, Acropolis and Cyprus are very rough and most expensive (as cars are almost destroyed). Especially R2 cars have problems to survive so rough events. So for me it was good decision not to include this two events to ERCJ.

    Yes, I can imagine that Acropolis and Cyprus must be car killers for those tiny R2 machines.

    Crusar Team said that Grzegorz Grzyb should be present in Greece.
    Habaj also wanted to come, but he damaged the engine in that crash on Canarias and nothing is sure now.
    Kasperczyk doesn't come. He already has 1 Million views on YouTube and doesn't need more fame

    Socrates Tsolakidis, 2003 Greek Rally Champion, will make a return to the Acropolis Rally with a Fabia R5.

    Fair points re these rallies being too rough... but then the ERCJ is now biased towards tarmac 4/2.

    Bit strange when the full ERC & WRC are gravel-biased and what the Juniors are aiming for and need experience for...
