While more than 700 drivers will be allowed to participate in the race, Hyundai Motorsport will also give production N models the opportunity to compete with two Elantra N TCRs in the Touring class. The cars that will be driven by Spaniard Mikel Azcona, German Marc Basseng and Manuel Lauck will be led by the American IMSA TCR champion Bryan Herta Autosports team. Hyundai Motorsport is aiming for its third consecutive victory by winning this challenging race.
The Hyundai Driving Experience (HDX) will feature two i30 Fastback N Cup cars in the VT2 class. HDX trainer Marcus Willhardt will use the first tool while the other will be used by participating journalists from Germany, America and Korea.
Hyundai will set up a large hospitality stand in the paddock area of the track and welcome N fans, media and other visitors from around the world to this large facility. In this special race where the N range will be introduced, the Hyundai i20 N WRC and N Vision 74 concept cars will also be on display.
