FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 4, 2020 — Hyundai has announced that its high-performance N Brand will be the title sponsor of the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) race weekend at the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca Sept. 4 - 6, 2020 in Monterey, California. This year’s IMSA Race Weekend will be the Hyundai Monterey SportsCar Championship. Hyundai will provide N Brand experiences to fans throughout the weekend. The title sponsorship enhances Hyundai’s growing N and N Line portfolio of vehicles, including the Veloster N, Elantra N Line, and Sonata N Line. Hyundai also will be the broadcast title sponsor when the race airs on NBCSN.

Hyundai said its N Brand is a perfect match for the IMSA series and Laguna Seca’s 11-turn, 2.238-mile road course that includes the famous Corkscrew turn. Hyundai sees this partnership as an excellent opportunity to showcase the high-performance N Brand to sports car racing and automotive enthusiasts.

“Seeing Hyundai and their N performance brand combine with one of my all-time favorite venues is fantastic news,” said Bryan Herta, co-owner of Bryan Herta Autosport.

Hyundai will be mounting an all-out assault to win the 2020 Laguna Seca race and the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge championship with three Veloster N TCR cars and six drivers. Mark Wilkins and Michael Lewis, who co-drove the #98 Veloster N TCR to the 2019 IMPC Drivers championship, will be split up for 2020. Michael Lewis will remain in the #98. He, with Mason Filippi and Mark Wilkins, will also co-drive with Harry Gottsacker in the #21. The new third entry, the #33 Veloster N TCR, will be driven by open-wheel standouts Gabby Chaves and Ryan Norman.

Hyundai Motor America is headquartered in Fountain Valley, California, and is a subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Company of Korea.
