Touring Car Race (TCR).
New rules for circuit racing.
The first races using TCR regulations took place in 2015. Since then, the rule set has been adopted throughout the circuit racing world and is now the base of more than a dozen regional and national championships.
The most high-profile TCR championship is the TCR International Series.
Its 2017 season includes some of the most famous circuits in the world, including Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium and the historic Monza circuit in Italy. The championship features privateer and customer teams with machinery representing a number of the top motor manufacturers.
Aside from sprint racing, TCR-specification machinery also features in multi-class endurance events, with specific classes in the international 24H Series and the Nürburgring 24 Hours.
Hyundai i30 N TCR.
The creation of the i30 N TCR represents Hyundai Motorsport’s first steps into circuit racing and its entrance into one of the fastest growing categories in motorsport.
The design phase of our TCR project began in September 2016, with the first completed test car running in April 2017. The TCR project continues the expansion of Hyundai Motorsport, with the new car to be built and developed by the Customer Racing department at the team’s headquarters in Alzenau, Germany.
Based on the road-going i30 model, in line with the TCR regulations, the i30 N TCR is powered by a two-litre turbocharged engine connected to a six-speed sequential gearbox and is fitted with a 100-litre fuel tank. The i30 N TCR will be sold to customer teams with the first deliveries having taken place in early December 2017.
