The creation of the i30 N TCR represents Hyundai Motorsport’s first steps into circuit racing, and entrance into one of the fastest growing categories in motorsport.
The car is competitively priced within the TCR market at €128.000. For further information on ordering an i30 N TCR please visit our dedicated sales page.
The design phase of our TCR project began in September 2016, with the first completed test car running in April 2017.
The TCR project continues the expansion of Hyundai Motorsport, with the new car to be built and developed by the Customer Racing department at the team’s headquarters in Alzenau, Germany.
Based on the road-going i30 model, in line with the TCR regulations the i30 N TCR is powered by a two-litre turbocharged engine connected to a six-speed sequential gearbox and is fitted with a 100-litre fuel tank.
It proved to be a front-runner straight out of the box, and helped our customers secure titles in the debut WTCR season in 2018.
Since TCR technical regulations were first introduced in 2015, the category has spread throughout the circuit-racing world. It has also become an important pillar for Hyundai Motorsport’s Customer Racing activities.
Having been adopted by dozens of regional and national championships in its infant years, TCR cars have become a firm fixture in international racing. The highest profile championship, the TCR International Series, paved the way for the all-new WTCR, FIA World Touring Car Cup, which was established in 2018.
Featuring some of the world’s most demanding racetracks, the WTCR features privateer, customer teams with machinery representing a number of top motor manufacturers – including Hyundai!
TCR-specification vehicles continue to be raced in regional series such as TCR Europe and the North American Pirelli World Challenge (PWC), as well as nationally.
