In 2019 Hyundai Motorsport increased its TCR offering with the launch of the Hyundai Veloster N TCR- a car sharing much of the championship winning formula proven in the i30 N TCR.
The Veloster N TCR was created in answer to specific demand from customer teams in the USA, where the Veloster N model was the lead car in Hyundai high-performance N line-up.
Like its i30 N TCR brother the Veloster N TCR focuses on delivering high race-winning performance, while keeping a firm eye on both purchase and running costs. The two cars share up to 80% percent of their components, including the two-litre turbocharged engine and 6-speed-gearbox, and is built by the Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing department in Alzenau, Germany.
The first competitive appearance of the Veloster N TCR was at Daytona in January 2019. It proved to be the start of a very successful year, as customers took first and second in the final points’ standings in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, as well as race wins in the sprint-format TC America championship.
