    Veiby will drive Ypres with a Hyundai i20 R5.

    “I really enjoyed Rally Ypres last year, it is for sure something special! It’s a great atmosphere at the rally, which you need to experience, it’s just incredible,” says Ole Christian, who was caught out last year on the Friday night. His 21st place did not reflect his performance, as the Norwegian competed under Rally2 regulations on Saturday morning incurring penalty time. This year, he will certainly not underestimate the stages.



    “Before I competed at Ypres for the first time last year, I knew it was a very tricky rally, which you need tons of experience from to perform. It's fast, and most important, stay away from the gruelling ditches. "



    Ole Christian will drive a Hyundai for the occasion, while defending his chances in the World Championship with a Volkswagen Polo R5. He emphasizes that it is a one-off opportunity.

    “Our main challenge this year is to win events at WRC2 with the Volkswagen Polo GTI R5, and we will do Rally Italia Sardegna this week. But when this chance to drive a Hyundai i20 Coupe R5 suddenly became an option, I had to do it. "It will be very interesting to try out the car, and it is also a pleasure to drive the amazing Ypres stages again," concludes Veiby.

    The colours of Hyundai will be further defended by Dutchman Martin van Iersel and moreover by Tom Cave, the leader in the British Rally Championship.

    R5 is 5-door
    WRC is coupe (or older is also 5-door)

    Is he driving COUPE or not ?

    Anders Grřndal from Norway,
    Beppo Harrach from Austria,
    Luís Rocha from Portugal,
    Jaroslav Orsák from Czech Republic,
    Matt Edwards from Great Britain,
    Augusto Bestard from Paraguay,
    Janis Baumanis from Latvia.

    Those are the known drivers today at test. I guess guys like Simone Campedelli will have some first contact soon.

    Quotes from some of those above say the Fiesta's power is incredible, the steering is sharper and the car is lighter and faster than the old R5. And there are already 30 confirmed orders made.
