The last pictures…

…of my trip to the Acropolis Rallye of Greece in September last year. Something I haven’t done before, but this post will contain more than one photo. All are taken at the Karoutes stage (8/11) on Saturday.
Again it was a perfect event and a perfect weekend and as always, a pleasure to have been there.

Thierry Neuville

As you might know, there is always a purpose behind travelling to rallyes: taking pictures in the dust. It all started at the 2006 Acropolis Rallye of Greece, went over to Rally Italia Sardegna on the beautiful island of Sardinia and in this year I finally went back to the Rallye of Gods in Greece.
In this picture: Thierry Neuville in his Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC at stage 8 on Saturday morning. This stage was near the town of Itea, located on the north coast of the Gulf of Corinth.


Acropolis of Athens

After sad and/or unlucky circumstances in the past years, this years trip to another WRC event was the first time, where we went as a complete travel group again. Exciting for me, as we finally went back to the Rallye of Gods, the famous Acropolis Rally of Greece. Haven’t been in Attika since 2013, the last event before this rallye got ditched from the WRC calendar.
The first thing we usually do after arrival: grocery shopping and visiting downtown Athens to enjoy the strange atmosphere in that city and going up Philopappou Hill to catch the view over to the Acropolis.


Dustiness at a glance

A last one from Sardegna this year. The whole scenery in the valley between Tergu and Osilo. Dust hanging in the air while the stage is still running.
Our camp at the “wild boar field”. Yes, we saw them and slept in the car. Felt much safer.
(And yes, we let the car cool down before entering the field.)
