Hyundai Launches N Performance Academy

Hyundai Motor America held its first-ever N Performance Academy at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, earlier this month, the automaker announced. The Academy offers enthusiasts the opportunity to test the Hyundai Veloster N on track.

Produced by Hyundai partner team, Bryan Herta Autosport, N Performance Academy was created for car enthusiasts to develop comfort and confidence behind the wheel. Nearly 200 guests have registered for the two-day event.

The driving experience included laps on the 2.4-mile road course which features 12 turns, including the famous “Esses” and diving downhill corners. In addition to the track laps, participants took the Veloster N through an auto cross course.

After honing their skills on the track, participants received tips from professional Hyundai race car drivers Mason Filippi and Harry Gottsacker.

“As a successful challenger in the performance category for almost four years and proactive player of Hyundai brand, N addresses and adapts to the upcoming changes in the performance category,” said Till Wartenberg, vice president of N brand Management & Motorsport Sub-Division at Hyundai Motor Company. “Driving was never meant to be boring and with N, it never will be. This is reflected with our new N brand slogan ‘Never just drive.’ And will also be the guiding principle of the future electrification of Hyundai N.”
