Video: Rally Acropolis 1986-1996
Nothing I can say or make up can possibly come close to what Rally Acropolis meant and still means in World Rally Championship, although in it’s modern guise this event is far cry from the epic challenge it represented in the past. Perhaps this new initiative to bring back longer and tougher events also means Greek round will return to some of it roots? Time will tell.
Among many very interesting and exciting videos of Rally Acropolis floating around YouTube this one somehow caught my attention as it depicts one of the most interesting periods in the history of rallying – end of group B and introduction of group A and all that set on demanding and rough Greek “roads” and paths.
Video is actually a documentary with Greek language narration, but with engine sounds and spectacular images it does not really get in the way of enjoying this show even for those of us not fluent in the language.
