Hyundai will be offering branded N experiences to fans throughout the weekend, including a chance to see the track-ready Elantra and Kona N models. The Elantra N TCR and Veloster N TCR cars will be aiming for victory in the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca 120.
“Last year we had a great time introducing the Elantra N to enthusiasts and N club members,” said Bryan Herta, co-owner of Bryan Herta Autosport. “This year we invite everyone to experience great racing on the best road course in the country. The following weekend we will be hosting the N Performance Academy, which will provide our most passionate N owners with driving time and driving instructions.”
Hyundai now offers three purist N models and four N Line models in the US market. This title sponsorship highlights the entire portfolio which includes the Veloster N, Elantra N, Kona N, Elantra N Line, Kona N Line, Tucson N Line and Sonata N Line. Racing fans only need a key from any Hyundai model to access the VIP area of the N Lounge. For more information on the N brand, visit https://www.hyundaiusa.com/us/en/performance
“Hyundai’s N brand is a perfect match for the IMSA series and the 11-turn, 2.238-mile road course of Laguna Seca, which includes the famous corkscrew bend,” said Angela Zepeda, CMO, Hyundai Motor America. “Hyundai sees this partnership as a great opportunity to introduce the high-performance N brand to sports car racing fans and automotive enthusiasts.”
