PIRELLI SCORPION TYRES FACE THE TOUGH TEST OF GREECE

Next up on the World Rally Championship calendar is the Acropolis Rally, round seven of the 2008 series. Faced with the notoriously rough rocks of Greece, the Pirelli Scorpion tyres will have to confront a real challenge. The Acropolis has built its reputation on being one of the toughest events on the calendar, thanks also to the high temperatures expected on the punishing gravel roads that characterise the race.
 
Milan, 27 May 2008- "The Acropolis Rally is certainly one of the most important events of the whole season for us, as it is amongst the most demanding of the entire 2008 calendar." The verdict of Mario Isola, Pirelli 's Rally Manager, underlines the challenge that the Acropolis Rally presents for the products of the Italian tyre firm, which is the exclusive supplier to the FIA WRC until 2010."
