Hyundai-WRC-Rally-Sweden-2015

 

Fresh from its podium finish in the season-opening round of the 2016 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) at Monte-Carlo, Hyundai Motorsport moves to Sweden Rally (February 11 to 14) where it will compete with three New Generation i20 WRC cars for the first time. 

 

The New Generation i20 WRC made a successful debut at Rallye Monte-Carlo helping the team to take its first ever Monte stage wins and a third place finish.

 

Hyundai Motorsport will now seek to put the New Generation i20 WRC through its paces on the snowy stages of Rally Sweden, where Thierry Neuville secured its debut podium of the 2015 season, with a three-car entry.

 

Monte-Carlo podium man Thierry Neuville will be joined by Hayden Paddon. In addition, Dani Sordo will participate in their first ever Rally Sweden as Hyundai Motorsport drivers this season in a third New Generation i20 WRC.

 

Team Principal Michel Nandan said, “We visit Sweden in good spirits following our podium in Monte-Carlo but we know this will be another learning experience for our New Generation i20 WRC. We will be running three new cars for the first time in this rally to show great performances and technology credentials in Sweden, hoping to be on pace with the front-runners from the outset.”

 

This year’s Rally Sweden will cover 331.21 kilometres over 21 stages, starting with the traditional Super Special at the Karlstad trotting track on Thursday night where huge crowds will gather. Drivers will rally across two countries on Friday with a total of eight stages straddling Sweden and Norway.
