Who gets the upper hand with the Veloster N ETCR will be interesting to watch, but it’s clear that with the quality of the line-up, the battle for supremacy is going to be fierce.

John Filippi had started just a handful of Formula Renault races when he graduated to the WTCC in 2014, but he immediately adjusted, taking second in the TC2 class in his debut season, aged just 19 and then raced in the series’ main class for three seasons. A switch to Hyundai machinery in 2020 in TCR Europe set the stage for Filippi’s best-ever season as he scored three podiums and closed out the year with a dominant win to seal second place in the standings.
