Hyundai enters world time trial with i30 Fastback NOctober 3, 2019
Hyundai will take part in the 2019 World Time Attack Challenge in the Australian Sydney motorsport park later this month with the specially designed i30 Fastback N.
The World Time Attack Challenge is dominated by tuning companies, privateers and racing teams who test their cars in different classes to find out who is the fastest. With the modified i30 Fastback N, Hyundai will be the first automaker to enter the series and compete in the Clubsprint class. Since professional riders are not allowed to compete in the Clubsprint class, Tim Rogers, Specialist in Product Planning and Development, will be driving.
The Hyundai sports team in Korea has developed a more powerful propulsion system for the car, and although the official numbers have not yet been published, it has customizable ECU sound, as well as an upgraded turbocharger and intercooler, while all internal engine components have been retained.
Australian aerodynamics doctor Sammy Diasinos, who previously worked in Formula 1, has developed a racing package that includes a large front splitter that produces 250 kg of downforce at a speed of 200 km / h, and a rear wing that adds 450 kg of downforce to that same speed.
“The big problem with the Clubprint class is that we are very limited by the aerodynamic changes that we can make to the car,” Diasinos said. “But with the front splitter and wing package we designed, the downforce and cornering ability of the i30 Fastback N should be significantly increased.”
Many elements of the i30 N Project C road car are also featured on the Time Attack, including a carbon fiber hood, Alcantara-clad steering wheel and lightweight forged OZ Racing alloys. All unnecessary was removed from the passenger compartment.
