Follow bestfromgreece on Twitter











Date: 16/Jun/2011

The Acropolis Rally is a well-established round of the World Rally Championship (WRC). Despite being a tradition in Athens for over 50 years, this car race changed location in 2009 and is now held in the town of Loutraki.

The race won the award for WRC Rally of the Year in 2005, when the Olympic Stadium's Super Special Stage wowed an audience of around 60,000 fans. The HQ and the Media Centre will be based at the Club Hotel Casino Loutraki, located on the sea side.

The FIA World Rally Championship has a global television audience of more than 800 million people in almost 200 countries.
