Sure, it’s just a test mule or even road car disguised as a rally racer, but that will not diminish our joy of seeing yet another WRC machine being born, not by one tiny bit. Hyundai recently released first action video of their new i20 WRC rally car, and it seems the little beast has a nice appetite for mud and dirt.
As we await for the more information on who will be piloting the cars and leading the team, I can only say I am thrilled to have this manufacturer back in the game and with a bit more oomph under their belt this time.
Now if only BMW/Mini would sort their stuff out and join the championship properly. With news about new promoter and rules changes, they just might be able to finally start off some solid negotiations with sponsors and investors.
