Hyundai tested it’s 2018 i30 TCR challenger at Valencia for three days, focusing on overall car balance and braking with development driver Gabriele Tarquini behind the wheel.
Already we have proved that we have a very strong base car. However, this early in a project there are always areas where you can still increase performance and, more importantly for customer project, improve drivability. After establishing the foundations for the set-up at our previous tests we are now building on to them. At Valencia we focused on the damper and brake settings, and we finished this week with very good information in these areas. Future tests will concentrate on other areas, such as developing the aerodynamic package and maximizing the power from the engine.” said Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing manager Andrea Adamo.
Hyundai will begin delivery the i30 to customers in December, but the car could make it’s racing debut later in the TCR International season.
