Hyundai announces line-up for Rally (...)

Three Hyundai i20 WRC cars will be at the start of Rally Poland, round seven of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC), which will take place from June 26 to 29 with stages in both Poland and Lithuania.

Hyundai Motorsport’s Thierry Neuville and Nicolas Gilsoul will be once again the leading crew behind the wheel of car #7, while Finnish duo Juho Hänninen and Tomi Tuominen will be joining the team for a second consecutive event in car #8. With the itinerary featuring fast and flowing gravel stages – a kind of terrain very familiar to Finnish drivers – selecting Hänninen to partner Neuville was the ideal choice for the Alzenau-based team

As previously announced, Hayden Paddon and John Kennard will drive the Hyundai i20 WRC #20, scoring points for the Hyundai Motorsport N team. A new round in the WRC calendar, Rally Poland represents a new challenge for the Hyundai Shell WRT but also for the drivers as it will be their first outing there.
