Bryan Herta Autosport to race Hyundai Elantra cars in 2021
28 December 2020
After sweeping the top three positions in this year’s IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge championship, Bryan Herta Autosport with Curb Agajanian is the first team to announce it will race the new Hyundai Elantra N in 2021.
BHA will field a pair of Elantra cars; the reigning TCR champion Ryan Norman will team with Parker Chase, while the second car will be in the hands of Harry Gottsacker and Mark Wilkins, who finished second this year in the TCR standings. Finally, Michael Lewis will rejoin the team after finishing third in points this year and will drive a Hyundai Veloster N with team newcomer Taylor Hagler.
"2020 was a memorable year and we look forward to 2021," team owner Bryan Herta said. "Hyundai has set the gold standard in TCR competition worldwide, and we are proud to continue representing them for another year of IMSA racing. The addition of the Elantra N alongside the well-proven Veloster N, with a lineup of proven sports car championship drivers, gives us all the tools we need to keep Hyundai competing for wins at North America’s best natural terrain road courses."
The 2021 IMSA Challenge season begins at Daytona International Speedway on Friday, January 29.
