As we cool down, Sebastien Ogier, inspired by Athens, gets serious. On Thursday, he already had a hot tempo. His Toyota Gazoo Racing took the first three places in the 0.98 km Cosmote 5G Athens Stage, a fast-fire battle in the streets around Syntagma Square. Ogier is striving to consolidate the lead in the FIA World Rally Championship. Here’s the live stream schedule the Rally Acropolis WRC, so as not to miss the best of Athens.
Acropolis’ launch up
EKO Rally Acropolis WRC started at the opening pace of the evening and Sebastien Ogier set a hot pace. Frenchmen’s Toyota Yaris World Rally Car stopped the clocks 0.6 seconds faster than Elfyn Evans! Kalle Rovanpera, who was fastest in the morning shake-down warm-up, finished third, a further 0.2 seconds back.
