Another podium for Brendan at Acropolis Rally


Brendan and Rhianon have finished third at the Acropolis Rally, making it two podiums from two events in this year's WRC Academy.


Starting the day in fourth place, Brendan again took a steady approach knowing that Saturday's stages would be extremely rough and rocky.  When Pontus Tidemand was forced to retire with a broken driveshaft, the Australian brother and sister moved up to third place.  The remaining stages of the day weren't without drama, though.  A broken rear beam was a cause for concern and they nursed the car home for a well-deserved podium finish.

After taking second at Rally Portugal and third in Greece, Brendan sits in third place in the WRC Academy Championship standings.  The next WRC Academy event on the calendar is Rally Finland, and with the experience gained from last year's event, Brendan is confident of another top three finish.
