2011 Hyundai Veloster Rally Car Unveiled

2011 Hyundai Veloster Rally Car: RHYS MILLEN With more than 17 years of racing experience, Rhys Millen has established himself as one of the premier rally/drifting drivers in North America. Born in New Zealand in 1972, Rhys is the son of famed rally and off-road racer Rod Millen. Rhys joined Rod in the U.S. as a teenager and soon afterwards established himself as a racer, by taking first place at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb in the Open Division and winning Rookie of the Year. He won the Formula Drift championship in 2005 and the Red Bull Drifting World Championship in 2008. Millen's driving credentials include movie stunts, multiple drifting championships, a Pikes Peak world record and his 2008 New Year's Eve Las Vegas truck flip. Behind Millen's success in the driver's seat is a full team of engineers and fabricators that know how to maximize the potential of a race car. Millen has continued to make a name for himself at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb where in 2009 he won the Time Attack 2WD class in his carbon-bodied Hyundai Genesis Coupe while setting a new class record. In 2010 Millen unveiled his purpose built unlimited class Hyundai Genesis PM580 which will also be on display at the 2010 SEMA Show. Hyundai and Rhys Millen Racing also recently announced their participation in rounds two and three of the U.S. Rallycross Championship where Millen is piloting a Hyundai Rally car specifically developed for the World Rally Championship.
