Hyundai i30 N TCR Champion of 2018 FIA WTCR
i30N TCR Dominates the 2018 FIA Touring Car Cup (WTCR)
Hyundai Motorsport saw its i30 N TCR take the company’s maiden titles in the inaugural FIA WTCR with its customers securing both driver’s and team’s championships.
The i30 N TCR
The creation of the i30 N TCR represents Hyundai Motorsport’s first step into circuit racing, as well as its entrance into one of the fastest growing categories in motorsport. The design phase of our TCR project began in September 2016, with our first complete test car up and running in April 2017.
From the first time I tested the i30 N TCR, it was clear that it had a very strong engine. So, to step in as a test driver and find out that the engineers had done such a good job was very encouraging. The entire package is very strong, which says a lot about the strengths of the i30 N road car that the TCR design it is based on.i30N lead test driver & 2018 WTCR Champion Gabriele Tarquini
