Rally Stuff WRC Greece/Acropolis June10-14 talk/results spoiler**

WRC Acropolis Jun 10-14 2009


Official Website: acropolisrally.gr/en/

Official Website Gallery:Acropolis Rally Gallery

Following on from Rally d'Italia Sardinia, the World Rally Championship now heads for Greece and one of the classic events on the calendar – the Acropolis Rally.

Rocky stages and stifling heat will play a key role in the outcome of the event, which features a number of new stages this year; providing an added challenge for the crews.

Special notes:

Success in Greece demands a blend of strength, reliability and speed. Rocky mountain tracks and punishing heat are the hallmarks of a rally that offers a new-look for 2009 – having moved from its Athen's base to Loutraki - but will doubtless maintain its traditional characteristics.

The gravel speed tests west of Athens have a fearsome reputation. Cars must withstand severe punishment from loose rocks which litter the surface of the mountain tracks, as well as bedrock which forms the base of the roads. Temperatures are likely to be well above 30ºC, placing high demands on engines and gearboxes. Because the winding, climbing roads and many hairpin bends make this a relatively slow rally (only Turkey was slower in 2008), there is little cooling from the flow of air.

Drivers and co-drivers can expect a tough weekend for the same reasons. There is no cooling inside the cars during special stages so cockpit temperatures are high and fitness plays a crucial role. Regular fluid intake is vital to stave off dehydration and ensure the crew operates at peak performance.

----------------------------------------------

The Acropolis Rally, seventh round of the 2009 World Rally Championship, got under way this morning as the crews left their Loutraki base and headed for the rough and rocky gravel stages situated to the north.

Day One originally featured six stages, but SS3 Evangelistria was cancelled last week for safety reasons as it was feared that the surface conditions would deteriorate too rapidly. The competitors will not be returning to the service park before the end of the day, with the usual midday break replaced by a 15-minute remote service between SS2 and SS4.

The day began with a passage over the Harvati stage, an up-and-over journey across a very rocky and narrow mountain route upon which tyre punctures remain a danger from beginning to end - with the exception of a one-kilometre asphalt stretch midway through. It was a very demanding opening run for all cars and drivers.

Rally Acropolis opened with a one-two stage victory for the factory Ford team, with Jari-Matti Latvala setting himself as rally leader ahead of Mikko Hirvonen thanks to an 18:18.9 run, a full 5.8 seconds quicker than his teammate's.

The SS2 Thiva stage offered a variety of surfaces, ranging from an abrasive base to thick gravel to matted earth, but the common denominator was the difficulty encountered throughout this 24-kilometre route's mountainous and demanding nature.

Dani Sordo was the fastest driver to complete the distance, reaching the finish line after a run of 17:00.6 and signing a first stage win so far for the Citroen team.

"I believe I drove very well. I am happy with the car; everything is OK," said Sordo. However the Spaniard is aware that the competition will be as tough as the stages are: "Our starting position is good, but Latvala is faster."

To prove the Spaniard's point, Jari-Matti Latvala took second place only 2.4 seconds behind, pleased with the performance of his works Ford Focus RS.

"We have a good feeling driving the car," he said. "Dani was also pushing hard, but I am satisfied. I didn't take big risks, so as not to make mistakes."

Acropolis - SS3 - Cancelled

The cancellation of the Evangelistria stage is not a surprise since the Rally Acropolis organisers had announced their decision last week.

While reviewing preparations for the Greek event's 56th edition, concerns regarding the surface conditions of the 21-kilometre route arose, prompting the organisers to cancel the gravel rally's third stage due to the probable rapid deterioration of the surface conditions.

Now former rally leader Jari-Matti Latvala had an off but completed the stage
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The repeat passage over the Thiva route resulted in drama for now-former Acropolis Rally leader Jari-Matti Latvala when an off at a hairpin saw his factory Ford Focus RS getting stuck by the side of the road during Day One's final stage.

The help of spectators finally saw the Finn back on his way, but over three and a half precious minutes were lost in the mishap.

"In a fast left corner we went too fast and right after that there was a hairpin, so we went off-road," Latvala explained. "We had to get out of the car and push it and we lost a lot of time."

Latvala's time-costly troubles benefited Ford teammate Mikko Hirvonen, as the Finn's 16:59.5 stage-winning performance also gave him the rally lead – and the road-sweeping duties as first car on the road tomorrow.

"We think that it is not too bad; our starting position will be good tomorrow," Hirvonen assessed. "For me it was the right thing to do."

The Citroen team's Sebastien Loeb took an extra 3.5 seconds to complete his run, establishing the second-fastest time despite appearing at stage's end with a very finished left rear tyre: "The stage does not look too hard for the tyres, but it is. They didn't affect my performance. I don't know about tomorrow."

Petter Solberg came next to claim third position on this run and felt very satisfied at the end of Day One: "It is going much better than I expected. The car is still not perfect, but I am very happy. We are going for the podium."

---------------------------------------------

Day 2
SS7 :Citroen's Sebastien Loeb has crashed !! out of the Acropolis Rally after going off this morning in the opening stage.

According to early reports the Frenchman went out around 8 kilometres into the 17.25 km Klenia Mycenae 1 test.

Although Loeb and co-driver, Daniel Elena both escaped unhurt their Citroen C4 WRC car suffered heavy damage.

It is not yet known if Loeb and Elena will be able to re-start on Sunday under the SupeRally format.

Loeb had been running third overall
---------------------------------------------------
Sebastien Loeb’s crash in his own words
Sebastien Loeb has returned the Service Park in Loutraki and has spoken about the crash on SS7 that took him out of the rally.
Loeb said: “It was my fault. It happened after I went around a high-speed right-hand corner, I was bit too sideways then the hit a big stone with the left-hand front wheel and that sent the car into the air. The car rolled over five or six times.
“The car is destroyed. There’s no chance to return tomorrow - the race is over. We are okay, that’s the main thing.”
After two uncharacteristically disappointing rallies, Loeb said his hopes of a record sixth consecutive world title were still very much alive. “Yes we might have lost a lot of championship points but we are still leading - and that’s an important point,” he said.
“Maybe my lead will be less, and that will make it more exciting for some people. It’s bad for Citroen, but that’s the race. We’ll do better next time...” he added.

Having started Saturday’s competition fourth overall and 41.8sec off the lead, Petter Solberg was up to third and only 24.8sec adrift by the end of the second stage.
While Hirvonen and Sordo said their priority through SS8 was tyre preservation - Solberg threw caution to the wind on the longest stage of the day and went on a flat out attack.
His stage time was more than 15sec quicker than rally leader Mikko Hirvonen’s and moved him to within 22 seconds of second placed Dani Sordo.
Whether the strategy will give Petter problems on the stage which follows remains to be seen, but it wasn't worrying Petter at the finish control. “That’s a proper stage time,” he said. “I took some big risks, you know? I wasn’t thinking about the tyres or the next stage, I was just going flat out. A podium is possible now.”

NEWS FLASH: Sordo stopped on SS9!
Dani Sordo stops four kilometres from the start
The remaining Citroen Total driver has stopped four kilometres from the start line. He is reported to be changing two wheels on his Citroen C4 WRC.
Petter Solberg, the competitor following Sordo through the stage, has been shown the yellow safety flag by marshals and instructed to complete the stage at road speed.


WRC.com SS9 NewsFlash

Citroen number two driver Dani Sordo has retired from day two of the Acropolis Rally of Greece.

Sordo's Citroen C4 WRC car suffered a broken suspension arm in the final test this morning, the 24.15 kilometre run through Kefalari 1.

The test was stopped for 7 minutes as a result, so that the road could be cleared.

Sordo had been second overall, just 3 seconds behind leader Mikko Hirvonen, when he hit a rock early on in SS9.

It is not yet known if Dani will be able to re-start on Sunday under the SupeRally format.

SS9: Double disaster for Citroen:
Shortly after Sebastien Loeb’s retirement on SS7, the Citroen Total team suffered another disaster when Dani Sordo, in the team’s remaining C4 WRC, stopped four kilometres into SS9.

The Spaniard had been second overall when he stopped, after breaking a rear wheel on a rock. Sordo was joined on the roadside soon after by Stobart Ford driver Henning Solberg, who hit the same rock as Sordo and broke the right-hand front track control arm of his Focus World Rally Car.

After hearing at the finish control that another of the Citroen’s had stopped, rally leader Mikko Hirvonen said he wouldn’t alter his cautious approach on the repeated stages which followed the midday service. “There will be no change, I’ll try to keep the same rhythm,” he said. “Maybe it’s easier with Sebastien and Dani out, but it’s so rough and slippery you can have a puncture anywhere.”

The two retirements had a dramatic effect on the top five positions. Petter Solberg definitely moved up to second, but as the driver following Sordo through the stage, he was shown the yellow safety flag by marshals and instructed to finish the stage at road speed. He was later awarded the same stage time as Hirvonen. At the finish control, however, he felt he deserved a better one.
“Fair enough, the safety must always come first, but I hope we are given a much faster time than Mikko,” said Petter. “It’s a shame we missed this one because we were pushing hard to make the most of the cleaning effect. A lot depends on this afternoon, but I believe we can win this rally.”

Citroen Junior team driver Sebastien Ogier moved up to third. “It’s been a difficult morning, with a lot of drivers going off,” he said. “Yes, it’s good for us but the rally is still very long.” Adapta Subaru team driver Mads Ostberg moved up to fourth. “It’s almost unbelievable,” he said. “I’m trying to push to keep Novikov and the others behind but the road is cleaning a lot and that’s helping them.”

Overall SS10 Klenia Mycenae 2

SS10: Carefully does it:
After the chaos of the previous stage, most of the World Rally Car drivers adopted a distinctly cautious approach on the first of Friday’s repeated tests.
There were no changes in the top ten positions, with most drivers seemingly content to bide their time, preserve their tyres and get through in one piece.

Once again with a cleaner road and less to lose, drivers further down the top ten were the fastest, and rally leader Mikko Hirvonen set only the sixth fastest time. “I’m looking after the tyres,” he explained. “The conditions were tough on them; hopefully they’re still okay for the stages ahead.”

Second placed Petter Solberg told a similar story. “We took it carefully and I’m sure Mikko did the same,” he said. “It’s so rough and abrasive for the tyres and I’m trying to keep them for later on. It’ll be difficult to take as much time from him as we did earlier.” The pair will go into SS11 separated by 21.9sec.

Considering the rocky road conditions, Sebastien Ogier was satisfied with a clean run and the eighth fastest time. The leading Citroen C4 driver remained third and relatively well cushioned with a gap of 58sec to Petter ahead, and 1min 23sec to Mads Ostberg behind. “It’s a good time, now we have to continue like this all afternoon,” he said. “It’s hard, and hotter than earlier, but the rally is still on.”

SS11 News:
The second day of the Acropolis claimed two more high profile casualties on SS11 when Petter Solberg and Mads Ostberg both suffered suspension dramas.

Adapta Subaru team driver Mads Ostberg was the first to hit trouble - electing to retire his Subaru Impreza WRC just before the start because his left-hand rear damper had been broken on the previous stage.

The Norwegian had been fourth overall. It is expected that he will re-start on Sunday as a SuperRally entry.

Petter’s problems came later on - around 20km into the 26.28km stage - when the left-hand front suspension strut of his Citroen Xsara WRC punched through its top mount and pierced the bonnet. Solberg completed the stage but dropped almost two minutes to rally leader Hirvonen and slipped to third overall.

With the strut poking through the bonnet, Solberg said it looked like the end of the road today. “I don’t think I can carry on,” he said. “We were on a long straight when ‘bang!’ it just went through. I was on the attack, you know? It’s too bad. Really too bad.”

Solberg’s team confirmed his retirement a short while later. At the same time, however, Petter and his co-driver Phil Mills were living up to their ‘never give up’ motto and making a temporary top mount out of an adjustable spanner. Their repair complete they moved off to the start of Saturday's last stage. It might not be over for Petter...

SS16 LOUTRAKI 2 cancelled
The penultimate stage of the Acropolis Rally has been cancelled on safety grounds because of the huge number of spectators that had flocked to watch the action.
The 8.98km Loutraki stage, run earlier today as SS13, was driven as a road section instead.

The next stage, the repeated SS17 Aghii Theodori, is scheduled to start at 1325hrs.

Congratulations
BP Ford Abu Dhabi team leader Mikko Hirvonen has taken the victory on the Acropolis Rally of Greece.

Hirvonen went into the final leg on Sunday with more than a 1.5 minute advantage after his main rivals, namely Sebastien Loeb, Dani Sordo and Petter Solberg all had problems on day two and fell by the wayside.

The Finn then paced himself through the final stages, which included two runs over the monster 33.00-kilometre Aghii Theodori test. SS16 was cancelled due to spectator problems.

Hirvonen eventually took P1 by 1 minute 12.9 seconds - the first time he has taken 'gold' since the Rally Japan at the end of last season. The result was perfectly timed as following Loeb's exit it means he cuts the gap to the Frenchman in the race for the 2009 drivers' title from 17 points to 7.



---------------------------------------
OverallSS17 - Aghii Theodori 2 (33.00km):
Latvala sets quickest time in final test; Sordo second - 5.3 seconds slower; Henning Solberg third followed by Wilson and Ostberg; Villagra sixth; Novikov lost over 8 minutes – mechanical issues; Athanassoulas claims the PWRC victory in front of his home fans; Hirvonen wins overall by 1 minute 12.9 seconds.
