Amittrajit Ghosh co-driven by Ashwin Naik won the Acropolis Rally in their debut ERC event, in the ERC3 category they had entered. It was surprising for the locals and media to learn someone as far as from India had won the event. Ghosh had secured the lead after Artur Muradian retired due to mechanical failure in their Peugeot 208 R2, who was only around 2 seconds ahead of the Indians.

Speaking to the ERC radio at the finish line, ecstatic Ghosh said,

“Coming here with an older generation R2, the goal was to finish. In the back of my mind I knew that if we got to the finish we’d be on the podium, but yesterday morning when I was only 2s behind [Artur] Muradian in the Peugeot I knew I could do it,”
