Bruno Magalhaes put his name on the glorious list of winners of the Acropolis Rally! The 37-year old driver from Lisbon avoided the troubles of his closest rivals and, being smart on his strategy, managed to win what he descibed as "the best result of my career". At the same time, this is the first win for the 3-time Portuguese Rally Champion on this year's ERC.
Hungarian Norbert Herczing pushed until the end for what would have been a glorious underdog win, but anyway his second place finish was a remarkable achievement that amazed even himself, for as he said he didn't expect to leave Greece with a podium place. He was followed by Polish Hubert Ptaszek, the youngest ever podium winner of the Acropolis Rally! The Norwegian Eyvind Brynildsen finished 4th, one spot in front of Cypriot Simos Galatariotis, while Grzegorz Grzyb rounded uop the top 6.
For the record, fastest on the last stage of the EKO Acropolis Rally 2018 was Alexey Lukyanuk, who won all but one of the four special stages of Leg 3.
