The third and final day of the Acropolis Rally of Greece offers another 110km of gruelling competition for the WRC crews.
After an early start at 0550hrs, drivers will tackle two identical loops of three stages in the countryside north-west of Athens split by a return to the Tatoi military compound for a 30-minute service.
The rally finishes with a second attempt at the short Tatoi Superspecial stage on the edge of the service park. The winning car is expected to reach the finish podium there at 1503hrs.
Weather conditions for the final day remained hot and dry. The early morning start meant the temperature was a cool 17 degrees Celsius at 0630hrs but it is forecast to rise to the mid 30’s by the afternoon.
Rally leader Sebastien Loeb will tackle Sunday’s stages first, followed by Petter Solberg and then Henning Solberg.
Here’s the rest of the WRC class running order for Sunday:
2. P. Solberg
3. H. Solberg
11. Al Qassimi
