Hyundai Motorsport last week completed first handovers of i30 N TCR chassis to customers. The two teams which travelled to Hyundai Motorsport headquarters in Alzenau, Germany to take delivery of their new cars showed both the global appeal of the i30 N TCR

One of the biggest names in motorsport in South Korea KMSA showed their interest in the i30 N TCR soon after the project was officially announced in February 2017. They are the technical partner for a number of racing series in the country, including one-make championships featuring Hyundai machinery. However, the purchase of an i30 N TCR is the first step for the team in the category, which is represented locally by the TCR Asia and newly confirmed TCR Korea series.

Hyundai Motorsport’s first designed i30 N TCR is powered by a two-litre turbocharged engine that produces around 350hp, with the power sent to the front wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox, operated by paddles on the steering wheel.

The i30 N TCR is designed for customers competing in the growing number of series worldwide where TCR-specification machinery is eligible to compete, including the FIA World Touring Car Cup that will form the premier Touring Car category in international motorsport during the 2018 season. Options are available for privateers to configure the car for both sprint and long-distance racing. The endurance pack available includes ABS, additional lighting and a kit allowing for fast refueling during pitstops.

The i30 N TCR is competitively priced at €128.000. Spare parts discounts are also available to customers who purchase more than one chassis in a single purchase, with up to €28.000 offered to teams confirming four cars.

The delivery of the first cars to customers comes following the last of three race events at the close of the 2017 season which completed the extensive initial testing schedule for the i30 N TCR. At each event, the TCR International Series weekends in China and Dubai, as well as the TCR Europe Trophy event at the Adria International Raceway, the Hyundai proved to be the fastest TCR package available.

Deliveries of the i30 N TCR to customers will continue throughout the winter. Orders are still open for teams to receive their new cars in time for the beginning of the 2018 season.
