Greek fires affected Toyota's and Hyundai's preparations for Acropolis Rally

As Acropolis Rally is about to start in less than two weeks, WRC drivers are coming to Greece with the intention of testing their cars before the start of the tenth round of this year's championship.
Greece is among the Mediterranean countries that suffers from fires. The forests on Central Greece region are still burning which means that Hyundai and Toyota had to follow the government's instructions and it was not allowed for both teams to test at the scheduled dates and regions. More specifically, Hyundai delayed its test programme by two days and its drivers had the chance to start their test from Thursday. Toyota faced the same issue as Hyundai in terms of the dates while both teams were forced to try their cars in other region than it was scheduled. On the other hand, M-Sport Ford's test will begin on Saturday, but the preparations of Ott Tanak and Pierre-Louis Loubet are forced to be done further north in Greece.
