Gaurav Gill is set to return to the World Rally Championship, as the 40 year old will be racing at the upcoming Acropolis Rally Greece. The rally is scheduled between September 8 to 11, and this will be Gill’s third outing in a WRC2 car this season. He will be navigated by Brazilian co-driver Gabriel Morales, after the pair showed impressive pace in Safari Rally Kenya and Rally Finland earlier this season.
“I’m really excited to be part of this legendary Acropolis Rally. We’ve had a great pre-event test through the rough gravel tracks of Greece. We have to brave high temperatures, dust and rocky passes going into the rally, but we’re geared up for that challenge,” said Gaurav Gill.
