Hyundai Motorsport will support i20 N Rally2 customers in five national rally championships around Europe with the i20 N Rally2 European Challenge

Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing will support i20 N Rally2 customers in national rally championships this season with the i20 N Rally2 European Challenge. This brand-new initiative – open to all i20 N Rally2 customers – is planned to include 15 events across five different national series – Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, Poland and Slovenia.
 
Any i20 N Rally2 customer finishing in the top three of the overall standings in eligible events will gain credit for spare parts from Hyundai Motorsport, with competitors free to enter as many of the selected events as they wish.
 
Currently, all seven events of the Belgian Rally Championship are included, starting with this weekend’s Rally van Haspengouw and finishing with the Spa Rally in November. In Germany, the extra rewards will be on offer at Rallye Sulingen in May and the Saarland-Pfalz Rallye the following month. April’s Severn Valley Stages and the Rali Ceredigion are selected from the British Rally Championship calendar, Rajd Świdnicki and Rajd Rzeszowski in Poland and Rally Vipavska dolina and Rally Dolina zelenega zlata from the schedule of the Slovenian championship.
 
Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing Manager Benoît Nogier said: “Introducing the i20 N Rally2 European Challenge for this season is new way for the Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing department to support our customers. By offering prizes for podium finishes, the aim is to motivate high-level teams and drivers to join events and encourage them to show the full potential of the Hyundai i20 N Rally2 at every event. We have selected key events from national series, many where Hyundai Motorsport customers have been strong, with the intention to support them as they build on the foundation they already have in the championships”.
