The new Hyundai Motorsport car, Veloster N ETCR, finished its race on a running track with no problems at all.
The new race car by the automaker can be seen during its performance on a video by Electric Cars Report, at Hungaroring.
These first days of tests are the beginning of a series of tests that the car will go through. This will enable them to come in as strong as possible in 2020 in the first ETCR.
As the Team Director of Hyundai Motorsport, Andrea Adamo stated:
“The first test for any new project is always a very important date, but with the Hyundai Veloster N ETCR it takes on greater significance. It is our first electric race car, and our first chassis to have a mid-mounted motor and rear-wheel-drive. We have shown with the i30 N TCR and Veloster N TCR that we can produce a very strong Touring Car, but now we have a lot to learn about this new package before the racing starts in 2020. The next few months will be very busy – we essentially have two challenges; we have to develop the chassis, but also learn to use the power from the batteries and motors effectively. However, with the testing schedule ahead, I am confident that our engineers will be able to produce another race-winning car.”
