Hyundai Motorsport will reveal its brand new 2017 WRC challenger at the Monster Energy Monza Rally Show. This will happen at a static media event on Thursday 1 December.

Monza, the Temple of Speed, is the perfect place for the launch of the latest Hyundai WRC car. The team will contest with it the 2017 FIA World Rally Championship.

The reveal of the hotly anticipated car will act as a prelude to the main public event. The newest Hyundai creation is designed to meet WRC’s new regulations.

The car will remain on display during the internationally renowned show for attending spectators to see its striking look up-close. The rally takes place 2-4 December.

The team will also enter one of its New Generation i20 WRC cars into the event.

The Hyundai event will be at December 1st

Team Principal Michel Nandan commented: “We are thrilled to announce that our brand new 2017 challenger will be officially revealed ahead of Monza Rally Show. It is a fantastic event and Monza is the ideal location to launch our latest WRC car.”

“New regulations for 2017 mean wider, more powerful cars, and we’re sure next season will be an entertaining one. The main launch will be a static media event. But we also want to give the passionate fans who attend the show something to cheer. Not only will our 2017 car remain on display throughout the event for fans to see, but we’ll also be participating in the show with one of our New Generation i20 WRC cars. It’s going to be a weekend to remember – and another important chapter for our maturing team.”

Hyundai already previewed the car at the Paris Motor Show. The livery on show in Paris was an interim version.

The team also announced that it is keeping its present three crews for two more years – Dani Sordo/Mark Marti and Hayden Paddon/John Kennard already had contracts until the end of 2018. Thierry Neuville/Nicola Gilsoul extended theirs for two more seasons.
