“The new team will be headed up by Hayden Paddon and will run in parallel to the Hyundai Shell World Rally Team for the rest of the 2015 season.

“We are also delighted to give our test driver Kevin the chance to take part in some WRC events this year and he will also run under the Hyundai Mobis World Rally Team name.”

Rally Sweden kicks off on February 12th
