WRC: Loeb earns hat trick of Acropolis Rally wins

Sébastien Loeb has moved into another record book with very prestigious company by becoming one of the few to have earned three wins at the car breaking Acropolis Rally of Greece. The hat trick didn’t come easy for Loeb as the Citroen driver dealt with pressure from both Ford drivers for much of the FIA World Rally Championship event nicknamed as the “Rally of the Gods.” Yet as the Frenchman stayed ahead both Jari-Matti Latvala and Petter Solberg couldn’t keep the same pace without making mistakes. That left the door open for a smooth and consistent Mikko Hirvonen to give Citroen their second one-two finish for the season. Another great performance from the living Gods of rally.
