9 October 2019 - Hyundai Motorsport has signed a new one-year contract with Dani Sordo that will see the Spaniard continue his involvement with the team for the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).
Sordo will take part in seven rounds of the 14-event 2020 season in the Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC, alongside co-driver Carlos del Barrio, marking his seventh consecutive year with the Alzenau-based squad.
The 36-year-old has been part of the Hyundai Motorsport line-up since the early days of the company’s WRC involvement, having competed in its maiden season back in 2014. He has scored nine podiums for the team, including his spectacular victory in this year’s edition of Rally Italia Sardegna.
The Spaniard has enjoyed a highly successful 2019 season – one of the most consistent and competitive of his career – despite only taking part in seven events so far. The Sardinia win represents the highlight to date among a number of strong performances on all terrains. His next scheduled participation will be his home event, Rally de España, taking place October 25-27, where he will help the team’s manufacturers’ championship push.
