Protasov, who was also the Rally Class winner on Vodafone Rally de Portugal, dominated the one-make series for DMACK-shod, near-standard Subaru Imprezas run by the Symtech Racing organisation in Greece.
The Ukrainian said: “I am really pleased to take my second Rally Class win on such a tough event as the Acropolis Rally. To win you need a car that’s well built to withstand the rough stages, but fast enough for the quick sections. We had no dramas, no problems with the car thanks to Symtech Racing and I was able to set some fast times. Winning [Class 3] as well ahead of the first Production Car World Rally Championship finisher is also special so I am very pleased. It’s been a great start to the season. I can’t wait now until the next round in Germany in August.”
Mexican Ricardo Trivino finished second in Rally Class in Greece with Indonesian Rifat Sungkar next up. Andis Neiksans dropped out in the closing stages with suspension damage.
Next up for the Rally Class crews is ADAC Rallye Deutschland from 24-26 August.
