The Hyundai Shell World Rally Team has an­nounced that Dani Sordo and Bryan Bouffier will join its lead driver Thierry Neuville as part of the team’s line- up for Ral­lye Deutsch­land at the end of Au­gust.

Neuville will once again spear­head the team’s en­try in the #7 Hyundai i20 WRC car, co­driven by Ni­co­las Gil­soul.

Spa­niard Dani Sordo will re­turn to the #8 Hyundai i20 WRC along­side his co- driver Marc Martí for his fourth FIA World Rally Cham­pi­onship (WRC) event of 2014 at the as­phalt event which he won last sea­son.

Bouffier will join Hyundai Shell World Rally Team for his first WRC event in the Hyundai i20 WRC along­side his co- driver Xavier Panseri. The French­man, who has been test driver for the team so far this sea­son, will drive the # 20 car in Ger­many and will com­pete un­der the Hyundai Mo­tor­sport N ban­ner.
