The Veloster N TCR was designed by the same Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing Team that developed the championship-winning i30 N TCR. Like its i30 stablemate, the Veloster N TCR will be produced at Hyundai Motorsport Headquarters in Alzenau, Germany. The two cars share around 85% of their core components, including the 350-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.
The Veloster N TCR will be fully unveiled closer to the start of the 2019 IMSA MICHELIN Pilot Challenge Season, which spans 10 rounds at marquee tracks across North America. The season kicks off on January 25 at Daytona International Speedway.
"We're absolutely thrilled to have Bryan Herta Autosport back with us, racing the new Veloster N TCR at America's most fabled racing circuits in the IMSA MICHELIN Pilot Challenge," said Dean Evans, Hyundai Motor America's Chief Marketing Officer. "After their championship run in 2018, we can't wait to see the show they put on for our fans and customers in the Veloster N TCR race cars."
"Chapter Two is going to be exciting," said Bryan Herta, president and CEO of Bryan Herta Autosport. "We learned so much by racing and winning with the i30 N TCR last season. We know just how excellent the platform is in hard competition. The Veloster N TCR retains everything great about the i30 N and gives us a world-class race car with a direct road-car counterpart that our fans can purchase and drive every day."
