Rally - #42

Further to the previous post regarding Hyundai’s new livery for Rally Sweden, here’s a couple of updates. The official reason for Hyundai’s ‘N’ performance branding is that the sports versions of the road cars are engineered at the company’s Namyang R&D centre in South Korea following which the cars undergo rigorous testing and validation at the Nurburging test facility in Germany. Regardless of that I still think it stands for ‘Nuts’! The i30 N and i20 N are seriously good fun.

Another thing to note about this weekend’s Rally Sweden is that the organisers have re-named the Brattby special stage. It will now be called #42 Brattby. Craig was fastest on both visits to the stage last year. Nice one Sweden!

As Cyril Abiteboul said: “He’s a much-missed member of the Hyundai Motorsport family and will forever be in our hearts.”

And so say all of us.
