GR03 - SS20

2003 GR, SS20 Action

  • Stage:Dikastro 2
  • Stage info:Repeat of SS17 earlier today. Sunday’s leg3 is going to be a very different story. It is the first time the 2003 Rally Acropolis visits stages to the North of its base town Lamia and it is an area that hasn’t been visited by the rally for a very long time. Maybe the stage called Tarzan still rings a bell to some. This year we have a loop of 3 stages run twice in the area, cicking off with Dikastro, going through a forest in the middle of the stage with the last half of it claimed by the organisers to be very smooth surface.
  • Distance:18.4km
  • Record:Fastest SS17: Petter Solberg, Subaru Impreza WRC03, 16m08.7s

Action info:

  • Incidents: Mc Rae hits problems. Reason is unknown at the moment, but he did drops a little time on the last km of the stage.
  • Performances:Solberg fastest and taking 2nd place from Sainz. Fancy Panizzi being 2nd fastest on this stage.
  • Stage winner:Petter Solberg, Subaru Impreza WRC03, 15m58.3s
