Hyundai extend role as ‘Official Car Partner’ to Wales Rally GB in 2015

After last year’s successful collaboration, Hyundai Motor UK has renewed their partnership as ‘Official Car Partner’ of the 2015 Wales Rally GB.

The partnership will see the Hyundai i20 WRC car at Wales Rally GB 2015 events and on promotional material such as posters, leaflets, flyers and the Wales Rally GB website. Likewise, Hyundai Motor UK will supply to the key members of Wales Rally GB and FIA VIPs a variety of vehicles to use during the event.

“We are delighted to be supporting the smooth operation of Wales Rally GB for the second consecutive year – what better way is there to showcase the robustness of our products than over the tough forest rally routes of North and Mid Wales in November!” comments Tony Whitehorn, President & CEO of Hyundai Motor UK Ltd.

“Rallying here in the UK has a significant, engaged and massively enthusiastic audience.  We hope that through our continued support we can engage with our consumers in a more dynamic way as well helping to further raise awareness of Wales Rally GB.”

Hyundai will also be taking part in the event with driver Kevin Abbring and co-driver Sebastian Marshall running as part of a four car line-up with Hyundai Motorsport. The team has been strong in previous yearS, with a victory in the WRC and good performances in Sweden and Sardinia. 

“It was a pleasure to join forces with Hyundai last year and we are delighted the company will extend its role as ‘Official Car Partner’ to Wales Rally GB in 2015,” comments Ben Taylor, Managing Director of Wales Rally GB.

“The staging of a major world championship event is a huge project, and we couldn’t possibly achieve it without the support of major partners like Hyundai.  Their increased involvement is reflective of the greater commercialisation of the event and demonstrates the value that the rally can bring to partners.”

The Wales Rally GB will take place on the popular forest tracks of north and mid Wales in November for four days. For more information and tickets visit the official website of Wales Rally GB.
