EVERYONE wants to drive the Hyundai i30 N TCR - even World Rally winners. Hyundai Motorsport star Thierry Neuville will swap his usual i20 Coupe WRC for the touring car at this weekend’s round of the TCR Germany series at the Nürburgring. While the Belgian is making his circuit racing debut, he’s no stranger to driving on tarmac, indeed he’s rated one of the WRC’s best on sealed surfaces. Even so, he’ll be up against a talented field of drivers so he’s drafted in some help. Reigning FIA WTCR / Oscaro champion Gabriele Tarquini will be on hand to give him some tips on how to get the best out of the i30 N. Neuville has also already tested the TCR car and can compare it to his WRC i20.
He said: “The touring car is much closer to the production car than the World Rally Car, which is much more extreme. Both cars are great fun and are winning cars in their series.”
