BRC Racing, Hyundai Motorsports development partner, will enter two i30 N TCR’s for next month’s TCR International event at the Zhejiang Circuit in China. Development driver Gabriele Tarquini will be joined by another touring car legend, two-time BTCC Champion Alain Menu, to pilot the new machines.
Hyundai Motorsport Team Principal Michel Nandan said: “The debut in the TCR International Series is a big moment for the project. Coming in China, alongside the TCR Asia and TCR China series, the weekend is the ideal event to show the potential of the i30 N TCR to teams and drivers. The look of the cars ties the i30 N TCR very closely to the N line-up of road models, so a strong performance would promote both the racecar and the standard models”
Hyundai will begin delivering the i30 N to customers in December for the upcoming 2018 racing seasons.
