Dani Sordo and Thierry Neuville have tested the Hyundai i20 WRC
2016. A test more of the face of its imminent approval, however, is
news by two aspects, the presence of the belgian and the good feelings
transmitted by the new World Rally Car of the Korean company. The tests have
taken place throughout the week on small stretches of asphalt in
France, usually with rain conditions. The official presentation of the
team Hyundai and this i20 WRC will be held next 9th December in the
team headquarters in Alzenau, Germany.
The presence in the test Thierry Neuville closes any
speculation. The belgian driver does not pass through its best moments in Hyundai, and the
relationship with the staff of the brand is not all positive. The rough and tumble
between both parties woke up rumors about his possible departure to M-Sport or
Citroën, but the fact of testing the new Hyundai i20 WRC is worth more than the signature
stamped on a contract. With the large investment of Hyundai in your
new i20, the belgian would not prove the new World Rally Car loaded of novelties
if there is the slightest chance of leaving.
Before the belgian, Dani Sordo stood at the controls dand its new World Rally Car. The Spanish rider was pleased with the progress made and as well
what she expressed to the fans in attendance: “The car goes well. Transmits
good feeling, but we still have much work ahead of us. Has
power, but there are fine tuned to the maximum to reach the best level in Monte-carlo”.
By then, the i20 WRC will have been approved and three units will be present in Gap. The Monte carlo Rally, will begin to determine if
the i20 WRC will be a real alternative to the almighty Polo R WRC.
