HYUNDAI MOTORSPORT NEW GENERATION i20 WRC
Now the pressure’s on. For the last two years, Hyundai has been able to deflect questions of its performance with a nod and a wink at the i20 WRC. That was the rally car team principal Michel Nandan was never that keen on building: it was always a compromise in terms of size, specification and development time. The New Generation i20 WRC is the real deal, this is the car Nandan and his Korean paymasters will want to be judged on. And, having bought themselves an extra half year (the car was due to be competing for the second half of last season), hitting the ground at anything less than flat-chat won’t be acceptable.
