2002 World Rally Championship
Round 7: Acropolis Rally (June 14-16 2002)

Close to halfway.

When the winner pops open the champagne on the podium of the Acropolis Rally next Sunday, the 2002 World Championship will have reached its half-way point. With this watershed moment imminent, one of the key questions facing the opponents of Peugeot-Michel in is whether the Greek round will enable them to reverse the recent trend and close the gap at the top of the provisional points table? Or, on the contrary, will the 206 WRCs continue to dominate the timesheets as they have done practically since the star t of the season? Unsurprisingly, the French team's challengers have prepared meticulously for their assault on Greece's uncompromising tracks, while Michelin's partners will be able to benefit from the new Michelin GW, the debut of which ended in a one-two triumph in Cyprus for Gronholm and Burns (Peugeot).
