Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Bri­tish co-driver Seb Mar­shall will con­test at least three World Rally Cham­pi­onship events with the fac­tory Hyundai team this sea­son.

Mar­shall and driver Kevin Ab­bring will be present on the next two Euro­pean WRC rounds in Por­tu­gal and Sar­dinia, where they will use a 2015-spec­i­fi­ca­tion i20 WRC. A third, as-yetun­de­cided, event out­ing will be added later in the sea­son.

In ad­di­tion to those three events in an i20 WRC, Mar­shall is ex­pected to com­pete in Hyundai’s all-new i20 R5, which is set for a sum­mer de­but this sea­son.

Ab­bring and Mar­shall are spend­ing much of the sea­son test­ing both the R5 car and the 2017-spec­i­fi­ca­tion i20 WRC – they were run­ning the R5 in as­phalt trim for the first time ear­lier this week.
