Marshall gets a renewed world rally deal
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.
