The Hyundai i30 N TCR, a developed version of the Hyundai i30 was revealed at Nürburgring during ADAC TCR Germany championship. The series has grown into one of the biggest championships run to the regulations, with nearly 40 drivers on the grid for the two 30-minute races.
Team BRC Racing along with Hyundai Motorsport, will continue to test and hone the i30 N TCR in the coming months.
The car has got a revised bodywork with a fresh color scheme for the first time over the weekend, validated by the team at their most recent test at the Slovakiaring. At the same time, the brand new livery promoted Hyundai’s new N line-up of high-performance road cars.
The design brought together the N logo and Hyundai Motorsport’s traditional palette of Sky Blue, with highlights of Active Red and darker ‘Hyundai’ Blue. The N name carried by both the road and TCR design is partly inspired by the track, together with Namyang in Korea, home to Hyundai’s global R&D Centre.
The Sky Blue that formed the base of the livery is also a core part of the identity of the N line-up, with the ‘Performance Blue’ available on the i30 N paying tribute to the liveries of Hyundai Motorsport’s WRC entries.
The race car was shown alongside the New Generation i30 on which it is based, as well as the i30 N, which was launched less than a month ago as the first model from the N line-up. Designed to be equally at home on the road and the race track the i30 N underwent a significant amount of its testing at the Hyundai Test Centre, which lies just outside of the Nürburgring circuit.
