The team

Ioannis Plagos - Driver

Ioannis was born in 1979 and is married with three children. He is a police officer with the rank of Sergeant, and has been awarded the highest Police Excellence Award due to an armed confrontation and dismantling of the most brutal criminal organisation operating until 2012, which resulted in his serious injury. He has also been selected by the European organization FRONTEX as an instructor in the specialty "Motor Crime Detection Vehicle Officer". This year he completes 29 years of involvement with racing, as he started in 1993 from karting, gradually climbing the ranks of motorsport, culminating in his participation in the Acropolis Rally from 2007 onwards, as well as representing Greece in the FIA Hill Climb Masters.

John Christou - Team Principal

Born in Melbourne, John Christou made his name in Australia, building a number of successful businesses. His latest creation was Ad-Momentum, founded in 2004 with the aim of changing the face of marketing.

When he decided to return to Greece and settle in his home town of Kalamata, the idea of getting involved in motorsports began to mature in him. A motorsport enthusiast, he invested with the purchase of the Citroen C3 Rally2, with which Ad-Momentum participated in 2021 in the Acropolis Rally and Rally di Sperlonga with Yannis Plagos as a driver.

He has already moved on to his next business step in motorsport, which cannot be ruled out to be combined with personal involvement in racing!

  • 4troxoi - Tingle !

    Giannis Plagos-Alkis Rentis at the Rally Acropolis Rally! With Citroen "Troi" Rally2, the best found in the European market by the expert Stelios Fakalis. The fastest policeman in the Balkans and beyond, will not travel simply and casually with his "Alketas", handing out autographs to the thousands who adore them from their crossings on the asphalt, maybe like no one. They participate as they know how. To fight. Important that this crew with gold seams came to stay. 17/08/2021

  • Channel Best-TV

    A fantastic car thanks to the great love of an expatriate from Australia for motor sports, Mr. John Christou. An experienced, with driving education and ethical driver, Giannis Plagos, an equally awesome and co-driver Alkis Rentis, an awesome pulse from the people who was in the central square of the city and did not stop for a moment admiring the impressive Citroen C3 with which Messinia will take part in the Rally Acropolis, taking photos with the whole team. 18/06/2021

  • 4troxoi - Dirt In- Asphalt out!

    This is an exceptional crew, capable of distinction in the demanding Rally Acropolis. Join the popularity in the red, which will entice a lot of people in the mountains, with the trump card quality of the crew and the capabilities of the car, which exceeds the usual options. The fastest policeman on the planet, he has the intelligence to manage with art and patience the French jewel, and on the dirt road. It is his pure hand that follows the commands, the song of Alketa with lyrics by Giannis and there is no doubt that those who support them will be justified. From their collaborator Stelios Fakalis who chose the best available "In Trois" to Mr. John Christou, who combines support with emotion. 18/6/21
