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.

In addition to WTCR, there are increasing number of regional and national series that run a similar sprint race format for TCR. And many of Hyundai’s customers have already chosen i30 N TCR for its performance.

In 2018, up to eight i30 N TCR vehicles participated in TCR Europe, winning five of the first ten races. Hyundai customers are also running in TCR Italy, Germany, and the UK, as well as participating in the Pirelli World Challenge in the USA, where they won two championships.

Based on The i30 N

For the first time, we are opening our new TCR Race car to the public. Based on the street-legal New Generation i30 N in line with TCR regulations, the i30 N TCR is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine connected to a 6-speed sequential gearbox and is fitted with a 100-litre fuel tank.
