Hyundai Veloster N ETCR
Hyundai Motorsport N team Augusto Farfus with John Filippi, Jean-Karl Vernay and Tom Chilton for PURE ETCR’s inaugural season in 2021, creating a formidable line-up. The Brazilian – who initially joined Hyundai for WTCR in 2019 – has taken charge of much of the development work of the Veloster N ETCR and knows it inside out. He’s in for a busy season with Hyundai as he complements his PURE ETCR campaign with a programme as a team owner in the inaugural season of TCR South America with the Elantra N TCR.

Rarely do young single-seater champions make an instant impression in touring cars, but Farfus did just that, taking pole position for just his second event in the ETCC in 2004 as the reigning Euroseries 3000 Champion. That maiden season with Alfa Romeo led to a long association with BMW that netted 19 wins in the WTCC and DTM plus big GT wins in the Nurburgring and Daytona 24 Hours, the FIA GT World Cup and the Intercontinental GT Challenge. No wonder Hyundai are glad to have him on-board!
