After a great performance of Robert in Greece, our appetites really grown. Robert is still learning, of course, but we always knew that he can afford a victory. Now that he was able to reach them during the Acropolis Rally, we believe that the bad luck finally left the Pole and now there will be only downhill.
Drivers will begin competition on Thursday, when there will be a qualifying section. This will affect only WRC series drivers, and Robert Kubica will not be involved in it. Previously - on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, drivers will get acquainted with the route.
The rally will start for good on Friday, and for the drivers it will be a very busy day. The start of first SS will be just before 8:00. That day will end at approx. 22:00. There will take place 8 SS’s.
On Saturday there also 8 SS - from 8:00 to 17:00.
In total, the drivers will travel throughout the rally until 1073 km including 304.5 km of special stages
