The first stage of the faster, much anticipated 2017 World Rally Championship season at the Rallye Monte Carlo was cancelled after Hayden Paddon’s brand-new Hyundai oversteered on the icy edge of the road and crashed into a cliff. It rolled over, blocking the stage road. One spectator was injured in the incident.
World Rally Championship driver Hayden Paddon had a hoon-day in his Hyundai i20 WRC giving rides to various VIPs after Rally Australia. My goodness, this slide is beautiful.
Hyundai showed off an “interim” version of their 2017 World Rally Championship competitor at the Paris Motor Show knowing that they’re still tweaking everything from its powertrain to its aerodynamics, but it’s still among the hottest of all hatches to behold. Drool with us at the close-ups.
Hyundai Motorsport was fined €50,000 (approximately $56,540) from the World Rally Championship for accidentally using the wrong rear side windows on their car. They didn’t just grab the wrong ones for one event, either. The wrong windows have been in use for all of 2016.
It's nice to have Hyundai fighting against Ford, Volkswagen and Citroën in WRC. I also like their car, especially in flight mode.
Lost in all the hullabaloo over the announcement of the Hyundai i20 World Rally Championship car today was the news that Hyundai is launching a performance-oriented sub brand for their racing and production cars. Its name — and I am totally not making this up, I swear — is N.
