Hyundai Motorsport targets podium at fast and furious Rally Poland

  • Hyundai Motorsport is ready to challenge for another podium result in round seven of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC)
  • The team has entered three New Generation i20 WRC cars to be driven by Thierry Neuville, Hayden Paddon and Dani Sordo
  • With a podium and fourth place finish recorded in previous years, Hyundai Motorsport is confident it can be competitive on some of the fastest roads in the Championship

- Following its recent win at Rally Italia Sardegna, Hyundai Motorsport is aiming to continue its competitive run in the 2016 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) at Rally Poland.

The team scored its second victory with the New Generation i20 WRC earlier this month when Thierry Neuville took an emphatic win in Sardinia. It marked Hyundai Motorsport’s third WRC victory since it entered the Championship in 2014, and continued the team’s most competitive season so far.

With Sardinia celebrations over, the team has reset its focus on one of the fastest events on the 2016 calendar. Poland is a venue where Hyundai Motorsport has previous success, having secured a podium result in 2014, and a fourth and sixth finish twelve months ago. This year’s rally will include changes to around 33 per cent of the all-gravel route, offering a new challenge for teams and drivers alike.

Hyundai Motorsport’s three-car entry for the 73rd Rally Poland sees Neuville (#3) and Hayden Paddon (#4) representing the Hyundai Shell World Rally Team, while Dani Sordo (#20) will be the sole entry for Hyundai Mobis World Rally Team in this event.
