Hyundai Motorsport Advances WRC Driver Line-up for 2017
Hyundai Motorsport has today confirmed a two-year extension to its agreement with Dani Sordo, which will see the Spaniard remain with the team until the end of 2018.
Sordo has played an integral part in establishing Hyundai Motorsport in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) in recent years. Along with co-driver Marc Martí, Sordo has helped the team to demonstrate sustained performance improvements since its WRC debut in 2014.
The Spanish crew contributed to the team’s historic 1-2 in Rallye Deutschland two years ago, while adding a further podium in Rally Spain in 2015. The pair have been regularly among the quickest in the field this season and secured their first podium of the season yesterday, finishing Rallye Deutschland in second place, equalling their best result for the team.
