Acropolis Rally fans watch champ in action

Sebastien Loeb of France pushes his Citroen C4 WRC to the limits yesterday during the first day of the Acropolis Rally in Loutraki. Loeb, the world champion, finished the day in third place, after Dani Sordo of Spain, also in a Citroen, and Mikko Hirvonen of Finland, driving a Ford. The Acropolis Rally, part of the World Rally Championship schedule, is thought to be one of the toughest professional circuits, as it is held on very dusty, rough and rocky mountain roads.
