The start of the Acropolis Rally will take place on 9th September, under the Sacred Rock of the Acropolis, and later the action will continue with the unprecedented special route around Parliament Square in the heart of Athens.

Thanos Marinos, managing director of Betsson Greece commented on the news, saying: “It’s a great honour to be part of one of the traditional WRC races. EKO Acropolis Rally is engraved in the DNA of the Greek motorsport fans with more than 50 years of presence in the WRC calendar.
“We are happy that we are sponsoring the event as the Official Betting Partner and for having the opportunity to be on the field among the fans”.
