To see the results of the Acropolis Rally, one would imagine that the Lancia's Delta Integrale were back to their once unbeatable form.
However, as in the Tour de Corse, the Team Martini backed cars faced a most serious challenge, this time from Juha Kankkunen in a Toyota Celica GT-Four. This was the cars debut performance on a gravel rally, and rally enthusiasts must surely look forward to further exciting events this year, as the might of the Japanese industry join Britain's Ford in an attempt to storm the Italian stronghold!
The Acropolis Rally covered over 1,100 miles, with over 300 plus miles of gravel stages. The heat and dusty conditions took their toll of men and machinery, and the cameramen have excelled themselves in providing you with the finest coverage of this, one of the most picturesque locations for a rally in the world.
