Acropolis Rally is a very well known name in the world of rallying and this rally was a part of World Rally Championship for decades until big crises in Greece ten years ago dismissed this rally form WRC calendar.
But now it is a different time with coronavirus pandemic sill going on so WRC promoter and FIA look for the organizers ready to to organize the events despite all the problems with pandemic.
Some of the rallies are still confirmed for season 2022 and now WRC Rally Acropolis is another name being named as a WRC round for the next season.
The rest of the calendar will be for sure Monte Carlo, Sweden, Portugal, Italy, Kenya, Japan, Spain and Estonia. The resto four organizers should be confirmed later this year.
I wrote about all this a month ago and I said everything about this but at that time it was not sure that Greece will be in because of their economic situation. I must admit that I was very unsure because of that but it seems that their organizers and their Government made an agreement worth of organizing this event.
I have some hopes for the WRC calendar of my own but let the best be in and not my hope.
