Podcast: Are Hyundai’s issues fixable in 2021?

The team discuss Hyundai's troubles after another difficult rally plus Kalle Rovanperä's prospects


It’s a far better time to be an employee of Toyota Gazoo Racing than Hyundai Motorsport in the World Rally Championship right now.

While Toyota has won seven of the nine rounds so far, Hyundai has won just two and endured another trying event on the Acropolis earlier this month.

Just what is going wrong? And will the picture get any brighter next week on Rally Finland – or even next year?

This is one of the major topics of discussion in the latest episode of SPIN, The Rally Pod.

Join our expert crew of former WRC team manager George Donaldson, DirtFish’s voice of rally Colin Clark, senior staff writer David Evans and host Lisa O’Sullivan for the usual 50 minutes of rallying goodness.

As well as Hyundai’s troubles, the team examines the prodigious talent that is Kalle Rovanperä and looks ahead to the 2022 Monte Carlo Rally to discuss the beginning of the Rally1 era and why some of the teams feel the itinerary isn’t fit for purpose.
