    WRC Rally Acropolis Greece 2021

    It is official! After 8 years, Rally Acropolis is back!! I am so happy!!!
    It replaces Rally Chile (9-12 Sep).

    https://www.wrc.com/en/news/2021/wrc...2021-calendar/

    Known as the Rally of Gods, Acropolis Rally Greece will start from its traditional location beneath the famous Parthenon temple in Athens, restoring one of the sport’s famous picture postcard images to the WRC.

    Details of the host city and itinerary will be issued following the regular route inspections by the FIA and WRC Promoter.

    Chile is a nice rally as well. However, now the 2021 season will have a slow and rough rally, something that was initially lacking (although now there's no Wales nor Chile as a mid-speed slippery twisty autumn rally)

    I am curious to see in which location it will be held: Loutraki (Corinth) or Lamia? I personally prefer Lamia, the region offers great stages but Loutraki is closer to Athens.

    But Loutraki has better hotel base. Both locations are beautiful. Maybe Lamia stages are bit more classic :0

    From Lamia, could they drive the legendary Meteora stage? Or would it be even possible? It's about 150 km away

    Nope. Everything is tarmac there now. As most of classic Acropolis stages.

    This is bad for the friends from Chile, personally I like the rally and also the people there.

    But these are awesome news for us Greeks.
    Last year I have gone to the Toyota tests with Ogier at SS Kaloskopi.
    These cars with top level drivers are so fast and spectacular, just amazing...

    I prefer the stages to take place mainly at the region of Fokida, which is the most classic.
    But in any case it would be fantastic to have the WRC back again, the stages do not matter so much.
