Hang about, that’s a gravel rally car on… tarmac?
Yes it is. All part of our cunning plan to prove that there’s nothing more fun to drive anywhere than a gravel rally car. Which there isn’t. Now, race teams tend to be fairly one-dimensional. They want to go as fast as possible.
So you’d imagine that when we set TG24 up and asked Hyundai’s WRC team if they’d like to be involved, they’d have insisted on bringing the car along in tarmac trim. Faster. Nope, they totally got the concept of ‘funnier’. So here it is, charging about with enough wheelarch clearance to make a Raptor jealous.
We’ll give you the full low down on what it’s like to drive later, but the thing to remember is that small inputs make a big difference: a quick lift on the throttle, a tweak of the steering and you’re sideways. You can’t believe that a car with such long travel suspension can be so accurate or direct.
