Bryan Herta Autosport has announced that it will run a single Hyundai Veloster Turbo R-Spec TCA car in the final event of the 2019 SRO TC America Championship as a co-entry with Curb Agajanian.
Built by Bryan Herta Autosport around the Hyundai Veloster Turbo R-Spec road car, the race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will represent the official track debut for the car.
“We selected the Veloster Turbo R-Spec as the perfect platform around which to build a race ready TCA car,” said BHA president, Bryan Herta. “We already know the Veloster has all the attributes you look for in a race car, great power and torque, low center of gravity, small frontal area and a perfect wheelbase-to-wheel track ratio. All the hard work was already done for us.”
The car will be homologated for TCA competition in the SRO TC America Series. It will also be eligible to compete in other series including SCCA and NASA.
A new BHA/Hyundai Customer Support Team will handle running the car for its debut. Following the race, the Veloster Turbo R-Spec TCA car will be sold to a customer and driver for next season.
