The Hyundai Shell World Rally Team has launched a new app, which it states will offer smartphone users the chance to experience ‘the speed and excitement of being a part of Hyundai Shell World Rally Team’.
The free-to-download application, named Hyundai VR+, is available either from the Apple App store or Google Play, and offers a Virtual Reality (VR+) or 360-degree panoramic view play function (above) from the co-driver seat of Dani Sordo’s i20 competition car.
The Hyundai Motorsport website can also be accessed through the app, ensuring users remain up-to-date with the latest developments, news and YouTube videos from the Hyundai Motorsport team as they embark on a second season in WRC.
“We hope through this ‘Hyundai VR+’ App that anyone can enjoy a thrilling i20 WRC in-car ride, all through a conventional smartphone,” said Gyoo Heon Choi, President of Hyundai Motorsport. “More VR content is soon to be uploaded and Hyundai Motorsport rally fans will be able to enjoy even more in the future.”
