In 2022, the superspecial stage moved into OAKA Stadium after 16 years, where there were many head-to-head battles, and was one of the most iconic SSS at the calendar as many drivers stated that they always wanted to compete there. Now, the Athens Riviera will be location which will host the superspecial stage of 1,48 Km, but there will be no head-to-head battles. The organizers chose this place as Greece is rumored for its seaside areas and islands and the crews will head to Athens Riviera after the ceremonial start which will be held near Acropolis.
