Hyundai Motorsport customers will not participate in WTCR - Race of Germany
  • Hyundai Motorsport’s customers will not compete in the forthcoming WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup Race of Germany
  • Hyundai Motorsport has the feeling that its customer teams are not given equal treatment in the series and are not made to feel welcome

 Hyundai Motorsport has announced that its customer teams will not participate in this week’s WTCR - FIA World Touring Car Cup Race of Germany (September 24-26).
 
Hyundai Motorsport has the feeling that neither the company nor its customer teams are given equal treatment in the series to other competitors and are not made to feel welcome. 
 
Hyundai Motorsport was due to be represented in Germany by BRC Hyundai N LUKOIL Squadra Corse (Norbert Michelisz and Gabriele Tarquini) and Engstler Hyundai N Liqui Moly Racing Team (Luca Engstler and Nicky Catsburg). Both teams are already on site at the Nürburgring. 
 
Hyundai Motorsport remains committed to demonstrating the high-performance credentials of its racing vehicles on an international stage, in series that are reflective of Hyundai’s N brand. 
 
The company’s participation in the Nürburgring 24 Hours remains unaffected by this decision.
