NEWS: Hyundai i20 WRC

Good on Hyundai! The i20 WRC is on its way – and looking awesome!
Hyundai say they been making "key appointments to consolidate the team in core areas" – including Frenchman Bertrand Vallat leading the design office and compatriot Stephane Girard taking the role of Engine Manager, Alain Penasse joining Hyundai Motorsport as Team Manager and Stefan Ph. Henrich heading the marketing & communications team.   
Since the appointment of Team Principal Michel Nandan in January, the team has focussed not only on building its bespoke facility in Alzenau and getting the i20 WRC ready for intensive testing later in the year but also on consolidating technical, sporting, and marketing sides the team. With new key appointments in all of these areas, the team is now operating at full speed while continuing to grow rapidly.
Hyundai Motorsport Team Principal Michel Nandan commented: "We’ve been evolving rapidly since the beginning of the year and made great progress in filling all the main roles to establish our core team. We’re facing a big and exciting challenge, in building a team from scratch and we have now only nine months to prepare for next year. I’m now surrounded by the best people in the business and I’m confident we’ll be ready to meet our ambitious goal to be ready at the start of the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship. While we have a very busy year ahead of us, I believe that team-work together with shared commitment and passion for motorsport are the keys for success."
