Win a race, win a 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe UltimateTue, 15 Apr 2014
Want to put your track skills to the test and receive more than just the notoriety of the quickest lap time?
The opportunity to win more than pride is here: Hyundai Motor America is teaming up with the Skip Barber Racing School to create the 2014 Hyundai Time Attack Challenge, and there's a 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Ultimate on the line.
The challenge allows students who attend a performance driving program at a Skip Barber Racing School location the opportunity to compete for the quickest lap time. Skip Barber holds classes at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, Calif.; Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Conn.; and Road Atlanta in Braselton, Ga.
In order for participants to qualify for the challenge, they must adhere to the official rules and regulations on top of making some brisk pace laps in a 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8. Participants then submit their fastest lap time. The person with the quickest time from each track will be considered a finalist, and they'll receive an all-expenses-paid trip to compete for a 2015 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Ultimate model.
The last round will see the three finalists duke it out at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on Nov. 1; the driver with the quickest lap time wins the car.
“For 39 years, Skip Barber Racing School has celebrated enthusiasts from around the world by bringing them together to share their passions on the track,” said Michael Culver, CEO of Skip Barber Racing School, “and we are excited to bring this tradition to high-performance enthusiasts in an innovative way! The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is the perfect vehicle for students to showcase their ability with its 348-hp V6, Brembo brakes and track-tuned suspension. We cannot wait to see the results at the end of the competition.”
