SupeRally experiment
decoration
Big news for Acropolis 2004 was the trial of so-called SupeRally system, run on the event for the first time. System allowed retired crews to restart on legs two and three, without being classified in overall results and scoring no points. System appealed especially to Mitsubishi and Skoda as both desperately needed as many competitive mileage as they possibly could get.

Other teams were more reserved but overall all parties were happy that system was tried out and because no championship points were involved. Event was pretty much Petter Solberg's show even though Gronholm led initially. Norwegian took lead after fourth stage and never lost it even though he was later penalised 30 seconds for leaving the service without mudflaps attached, as required by the rules.
