Hyundai Motorsport GmbH has opened its new headquarters in Alzenau, Germany today, which will host preparations for the automaker's return to the FIA World Rally Championship in 2014.
The new modern infrastructure has an area of 8,200 square meters and it’s located within a 50km radius of the Hyundai European Technical and Design Centre at Russelsheim and Hyundai Motor Europe in Offenbach.

“Today marks another important step forward in our thrilling task of developing a motorsport team from scratch as we inaugurate our headquarters. We have a challenge ahead of us and we have the perfect facility here to prepare for it,” Michel Nandan, Hyundai Motorsport team principal, said.

“This is a historic day for Hyundai Motor Company. Not only are we celebrating the opening of the new home of Hyundai Motorsport, but also demonstrating our commitment to improving the performance of all of our cars,” added Tak Uk Im, executive vice president and COO of Hyundai.

The Korean company will also open a vehicle test center at the Nurburgring race track later this year.
