You don’t need an excuse to buy a Hyundai i30 N, but just in case you were teetering on the edge of buying one of its competitors, maybe a free track day will convince you that Korean is the way to go.
Hyundai’s ‘Nth Degree Experience’ gives consumers the chance to get behind the wheel of the i30 N at the Millbrook Proving Ground, where they can take to the ‘High-Speed Bowl’ or the ‘Mile Straight’. Four different drives will showcase the hot Hyundai’s performance, technology, control and handling.
Hyundai will be monitoring the drivers’ performance and awarding them points throughout the day, with the person at the top of the leaderboard at the end of each session winning a Hyundai Motorsport WRC Co-Drive experience. The lucky winners will be driven by one of Hyundai’s rally drivers on an actual stage used during this year’s Wales Rally GB.
And, if that’s not enough, the overall winner will experience a full weekend at Wales Rally GB in October, which will include meals and overnight accommodation.
Nth Degree Hub
Off track, participants will have access to the ‘Nth Degree Hub’, where guests can take part in interactive challenges and be given the opportunity to share their verdict on the i30 N.
Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai UK’s president and CEO, commented: “i30 N is the first vehicle from Hyundai’s new performance N range and it has been engineered to deliver maximum driving pleasure.
“We’ve designed the Nth Degree Experience to give consumers the opportunity to, not only experience our new hot hatch, but to really put it through its paces. Each exclusive session promises to be fun and competitive, with guests getting the chance to perfect their driving skills on some of Millbrook’s most challenging routes that aren’t normally open to members of the public.”
The event is free-of-charge and will take place on 11, 12, 18 and 19 August at Millbrook, Bedfordshire. Consumers need to register at nthdegree.hyundai.co.uk.
Hyundai i30 N prices start from £25,010 for the standard 250hp car and £28,010 for the 275hp Performance edition, which also features an electronic diff, active exhaust, Pirelli P Zero tyres and uprated brakes.
