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.

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.
