HYUNDAI INTRODUCES RHYS MILLEN RED BULL RALLYCROSS TEAM, STARRING VELOSTER, AT THE CHICAGO AUTO SHOW Drivers Rhys Millen and Robbie Maddison Race New Veloster Rally Cars at X Games During the 2011 U.S. Rallycross Championship Series CHICAGO, Feb. 9, 2011 -- With the next generation of Hyundai buyers eagerly awaiting the upcoming launch of the 2012 Veloster, Hyundai fuels the excitement by teaming with Rhys Millen Racing (RMR) and Red Bull to campaign the car in the high-energy sport of rallycross. At the Chicago Auto Show, Hyundai Motor America adds the Veloster coupe to its motorsports program with the help of champion race car driver Rhys Millen, who fabricated and will race the first 500-horsepower AWD Veloster rally car in the 2011 U.S. Rallycross Championship. RMR and Hyundai are constructing a second Veloster rally car that will be a shared ride between rally champion Marcus Dodd and world record freestyle motorbike rider Robbie Maddison. Millen and Maddison will drive the Veloster rally cars at Summer X Games. A third Veloster rally car will be constructed to compete in the 2WD class in limited number of U.S. Rallycross Championship events and will be piloted by to-be-announced celebrity drivers. 2011 U.S. Rallycross Championship schedule (schedule is subject to change) • Rd. 1 March 26-27 Irwindale Speedway, Irwindale, Calif. • Rd. 2 April 16-17 TBA, West Coast Venue • Rd. 3 June 18-19 Pikes Peak International Raceway, Pueblo, Colo. • X Games 17 July 26-31 Los Angeles, Calif. • Rd. 4 Oct.

"The all-new 2012 Veloster is a playful, fun to drive car and thanks to Rhys and his team we're excited to introduce it to racing fans ahead of its launch this summer. I teamed up with Rhys' father, Rod, nearly twenty years ago for Hyundai's original Pikes Peak rally program, so it is great to be back in the sport again with his son inspiring a new generation."
