- Hyundai Motorsport will compete with three New Generation i20 WRC cars for the first time at next week’s Rally Sweden, second round of the 2016 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC)
- Following its third place finish in the season-opener at Rallye Monte-Carlo last month, the team heads to Sweden with fond memories, having last year achieved a podium finish.
Monte-Carlo podium men Thierry Neuville will be joined by Hayden Paddon. In addition, Dani Sordo will participate in their first ever Rally Sweden as Hyundai Motorsport drivers this season in a third New Generation i20 WRC.
We visit Sweden in good spirits following our podium in Monte-Carlo but we know this will be another learning experience for our New Generation i20 WRC. We will be running three new cars for the first time in this rally to show great performances and technology credentials in Sweden, hoping to be on pace with the front-runners from the outset.”
