Everyone is raving about Hyundai’s i30N and what a handy tool it is in a sporty environment.
So, we took one to the track for some ridgey-didge punting and took a stop watch along for the ride.
The result is quite arresting when you think the car we drove was set up for the road with road tyres, road wheel alignment, road brake pads and road fluids.
Mattered not a hoot.
Best time of the day in the i30 N was in the mid 1m.09 second bracket – very handy by anyone’s measure…
