I saw some time ago Hyundai showed off a Veloster TCR, but i've not seen it race at all this year. What has happened to this car?

The Veloster is racing in North America. Except for a few outings in 24h Nurburgring and VLN, I don't think it has raced outside North America.

Built for the US market, where the i30 is not available as a road car. There's been two running in IMSA Challenge all year

Ah ok, thanks for clearing that up Nigel. I just thought it was strange they announced the car but then never appeared in the WTCR, but that kinda makes sense.

Surprised Lynk&Co get to keep theirs, considering they've not sold a single customer car...

Under the rules manufacturer are only required to offer cars within 12 months of the car being officially certified.

This rule is what is making this such an issue. At least last year Hyundai had other cars racing right from the start. By the looks of it customers might not get the cars in time for the starts of the season and they might only give it out to Chinese amateurs meaning still no one actually knows their true pace.

As I understand what they've said is that anyone with 130k can buy one but obviously they can only build so many at a time so they will prioritise orders from their home market.

Well under TCR Rules they have to build 10 race cars within the first 12 months after they applied for TCR Certification so more then 4 must exist.

The rules also state that the car must be delivered within 3 months.

For the south east Asian leg of WTCR, they had a spare chassis shipped out for every main chassis. So that's 8...
