Sordo wins rally shoot-out at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Dani Sordo gives Hyundai i20 WRC its UK debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and wins the Forest Rally Stage shoot-out
Hyundai's Dani Sordo clinched the fastest recorded laps around the Goodwood Festival of Speed's 1.16-mile Forest Rally Stage last weekend.

With the rest of the Hyundai WRC team in Poland competing in the seventh round of the 2014 World Rally Championship, Sordo gave the Hyundai i20 WRC its UK debut successfully steering it to 'victory' on Goodwood's Forest Rally Stage with a best aggregate time of 7 minutes 49 seconds over three runs. It was the first time since its inception in 2005 that runs were timed over the Forest Rally Stage, with a prize awarded to the quickest driver. Every day, over the three-day period, Sordo's shoot out time was the fastest.

“It was a great privilege for me to show what the Hyundai i20 WRC car is capable of at such a popular global motorsport event,” said the Spaniard.

“This was the first time fans in the UK were able to see our car in action, so it was important to put in a good performance while my team mates were competing in Poland.

“To come away with the fastest times of the weekend against some great drivers was just fantastic.”

Meanwhile, competing in Rally Poland, team-mates Thierry Neuville, Juho Hanninen and Hayden Paddon all finished in the top eight with Neuville taking a second podium place for the team in third place overall. Hanninen was sixth and Paddon eighth.
