With a total of 50 entries, the 2013 Acropolis Rally will host all the major WRC protagonists as well as all of the Manufacturers and WRC-Teams, totaling 13 WRC cars.

The Championship leader Sebastien Ogier and his team-mates will try to keep on their good series of excellent results in their first time on Greek gravel. At the same time no-one should underestimate the experience of Mikko Hirvonen in the Rally of Gods, or the passion of Mads Ostberg, nor the knowledge of Malcolm Wilson’s team on this demanding Greek WRC round.

The WRC 2 leader, Abdulaziz Al-Kuwari, will join the rally too and everyone expects him to keep on his exceptional performance after dominating in Argentina, although it is an open secret that both the spectators and the Media will focus on Robert Kubica’s performance, on his second entry in a gravel event.

As for the national drivers, attention should be drawn on Lambros Athanassoulas, driving a Ralliart Italy Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X. The Greek driver, who won the Production category on 2009 Acropolis Rally will focus on avoiding problems, trying to achieve the best possible result at his “comeback” to his country’s rally.

The 2013 Acropolis Rally also counts for the Junior WRC so all the 10 young drivers who will participate in the series will give their best during their three-day “battle” through rough surfaces and high temperatures.

This year’s event starts on Friday, the 31st of May at 17:00, with the ceremonial start in front of Zappion, and soon after entrants will face the Acropolis’ real nature in a 47 km Special Stage (Kineta-Pissia), just before the 26 km Special Stage Kineta which will run in the night.

The Acropolis Rally 2013 will be held from 31 May to 2 June and will host crews from 28 countries in its 14 special stages of 307 kilometers in total. Stay tuned for the 59th rendez-vous of Greece with the World Rally Championship!
