INNOCEAN Frankfurt is at the start with a digital campaign for the Hyundai N at the 24h race.
The 24-hour race at the Nürburgring is a myth; it fascinates with exciting action, passion and the combination of demanding technical and human driving performances.
For a long time it was not foreseeable whether and under which conditions the race would start this year. N, the successful high-performance brand of Hyundai, and INNOCEAN Frankfurt have come up with a lot to share the joy and fun of the legendary event with the enthusiastic N community and a wide audience. Time to buckle up already to be tuned in for the broadcast on the Hyundai N Livestreaming website!
Two new models in the 24h race and already in June it will also go electric.
Till Wartenberg, vice president, N brand management and Motorsport, at Hyundai Motor Company, Seoul: "With the N brand, we have been able to build a large community in recent years. We want to continue to strengthen and expand this close bond with our fans through cultural marketing activities in the future. The campaign for the 24-hour race connects us with the fans, is fun and invites them in a friendly way to discover the world of N. With the Elentra N TCR and the i20N, we will see two new models in the race. But that's not all, Hyundai N will start in the first electric touring car series ETCR with the Veloster N ETCR before the end of June. After all, motorsport serves to extend our technological leadership."
