In hopes of raising the profile of its N performance brand, Hyundai will launch a Pirelli World Challenge race program for the 2018 season and compete in the new TCR class. The program was announced at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show and follows-up the debut of the Veloster N last month in Detroit.

The i30 N TCR is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 350 horsepower. That is connected to a six-speed sequential transmission. All the typical race car hardware is here, too, including an adjustable suspension, Brembo brakes, full roll cage and a monster wing out back to keep the rear planted at high speeds when it's battling race-prepped cars like the Audi RS3 and Volkswagen Golf GTI.

To manage the race operation, Hyundai has teamed with Bryan Herta Autosport, which has previous experience running programs in IndyCar and Global Rallycross. For the World Challenge effort, drivers Michael Lewis and Mark Wilkens have been tabbed to pilot the i30s.
