We reported in detail when the World Rally Championship edition of the Hyundai i20 hatchback was unveiled to the world.
Hyundai recently displayed the newly updated 2014 World Rally Championship Hyundai i20 at Geneva Motor Show. The revised WRC-spec i20 gets aerodynamic updates and a better tuned suspension.
The updated i20 WRC gets a new rear wing and a new front spoiler. The car also gets an updated chassis along with an improved suspension setup.
“We are still in the infancy of our exciting WRC programme so the development curve for the car and team is steep,” explained team principal Michel Nandan. “This latest version of the i20 WRC has centred on aerodynamics with the objective of improving the car’s cooling systems.”
“Building up a new motorsport facility from scratch is an ambitious and rewarding challenge. We have begun the recruitment process but already have a number of key people in place who bring with them a wealth of rally and motorsport experience,” he said.
“We are rapidly building up the team infrastructure and are pleased that everything is running to schedule. Our ultimate goal is to be victorious but we know that we have a lot of tough competition ahead of us. We will use this year to lay the solid foundations but hope to advance quickly as 2014 approaches,” added Nandan.
