• Bryan Herta Autosport to offer U.S. sales and support for Veloster N TCR and i30 N TCR
• Hyundai announces contingency awards programs for customer TCR teams in SRO America’s TC America classes
• Veloster N and i30 N are both homologated
NEW YEAR, NEW CAR
The Veloster N TCR is part of the ongoing rollout of the Hyundai N brand globally, and addresses the requests of Hyundai Motorsport customer teams in select national markets where the i30 N TCR race car was in competition, but the i30 N road car was not part of a region’s production-vehicle model range. The addition of the Veloster N TCR to the customer motorsports lineup gives teams in national markets where the Veloster N road car is available a more relevant platform for their respective audiences.
Both Veloster N TCR and i30 N TCR are fully homologated for competition in officially-sanctioned TCR series. Priority for initial Veloster N TCR deliveries, however, will go to customer teams in markets where the Veloster N road car is offered.
