The battle between Alexey Lukyanuk and Eyvind Brynildsen has began.

The Russian and the Norwegian driver were splitted by just 2 tenths of a second at the starting special stage of the 2nd Leg of EKO Rally Acropolis 2018, SS «EKO New Amfissa». Bruno Magalhaes was 13.3sec behind in third place. Meanwhile the Acropolis Rally has lived uo to it’s reputation for its toll on tyres, since Juuso Nordgren and Orhan Avcioglou had two punctures - but stayed in race.

No1: LUKYANUK Alexey - ARNAUTOV Alexey
“We took it easy. Conditions are quite different, it's really rough. This is a long loop so we try
to drive carefully.”

Νο2: MAGALHAES Bruno - MAGALHAES Hugo
“Very fast stage, not the best for the start of the day, too fast. I was too cautious in some
places. Today will be difficult. I don't want to take much risk. The car feels better than
yesterday.”

Νο3: HERCZIG Norbert - FERENCZ Ramon
“This stage was quite OK, the road was really slippery, but it's part of this sport.”

Νο4: GRZYB Grzegorz - WROBEL Jakub
“Big fun, but I don't know about the time, with our position it was more slippery than I
expected. The car feels little bit better than yesterday.”

Νο5: HABAJ Lukasz - DYMURSKI Daniel
“The team did great job, they worked until 2 a.m., thanks to the team. The car is like new
now. We have little problem with water pressure alarm, but it's OK.”

Νο6: BRYNILDSEN Eyvind - ENGAN Veronica
“Clean run, but it's rough, lot of stones in the line. I tried to avoid any mistake.”

Νο7: TSOULOFTAS Alexandros - CHRYSOSTOMOU Antonis
“It's OK, we have more grip than before and we pushed more. We are happy.”

Νο9: PTASZEK Hubert - SZCZEPANIAK Maciej
“Second on the road is not the best option, we don't have to be surprised and live with that.
We tried to go clean, but with this road position it's not easy.”

Νο12: AVCIOGLOU Orhan - KORKMAZ Burcin
“It came in the beginning, maybe three kilometers in the stage.”

Νο16: GALATARIOTIS Simos - IOANNOU Antonios
“OK, bit slippery, we went safe for the tyres. In the end the car cut out, we lost maybe ten or
fifteen seconds.”

Νο28: PROTASOV Yurii - CHEREPIN Pavlo
“Not so bad I think, we tried to find the right rhytm. I tried to change my driving style from
yesterday, I'm quite happy.”

Νο29: NORDGREN Juuso - SUOMINEN Tapio
“We got the puncture maybe three kilometers after start. (Lost more than 1 minute)”
